Classic Patsy portrait

Patsy Cline was not considered conventionally beautiful, but her glamorous and surprising personality shone through even in photos.

She was famous for chemistry with her audiences.

Hilda Hensley

Patsy Cline's mother was her best friend, and outlived her by many years. Interview opportunities with Hilda were rare, and so are photographs of her.

A little more candid

Although her make-up and hair are done-up, Patsy seems to be caught in a candidly friendly look here.
