Today In Country History- Patsy Cline’s Greatest Hits Released
The Music and Memories of March 13
1967- Four years after her death, Decca Records releases Patsy Cline’s “Greatest Hits.” It’s hard to believe that she only had two number one hits during her short career, “I Fall To Pieces” and “She’s Got You.” These singles along with the timeless classics “Crazy” and “Walkin’ After Midnight” (which both peaked at number two) appear on the project. Later, the album earns a Diamond Award for selling over 10 million copies.
