Patsy Cline: Crazy for Loving You Hall of Fame Exhibit to Open in August

In March, 1963, I was working at my first country station, KLLL, in my hometown of Lubbock, TX. The tragic news of Patsy Cline's death in a plane crash near Dyersburg, TN., came as such a shock. She, at the time, was country music's biggest female star. Also, passing away were country singers Hawkshaw Hawkins and Cowboy Copas. Now, we've learned from Taste of Country that Patsy is the subject of an upcoming exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville. Patsy Cline: Crazy for Loving You will open in the museum’s East Gallery on Aug. 24, signing rent for a ten-month run.

Fans of Famous Homes Will Now Be Able to Add Patsy Cline’s to the List

I like famous people's homes. I do. It kind of sneaked up on me, but it's true. When I was a kid, my parents took me to President Harry Truman's home in Independence, Missouri. I had a great time! On the same trip, we visited President Dwight Eisenhower's home in Abilene, Kansas. Loved it. I mean, here I was an 8-year-old boy walking through houses where actual PRESIDENTS spent a great deal of their private time. How was that possible? Even today, I get a kick out of it. And now a country legend's Virginia digs will be available for touring. I guess it's time to make plans.

But the reason the list is fascinating to me is the inclusion of Con Hunley.
