Date October 22, 2019 18:00

Legendary singer Patsy Cline earned worldwide acclaim as the most influential country singers of all time. Her remarkably powerful and emotionally charged contralto voice earned her many accolades but beyond the recognition, she was proud to touch the hearts of millions.

The I Fall to Pieces singer, who was the reigning Queen of Country Music until her fatal airplane crash in 1963 inspired generations of female singers including Loreta Lynn, Gretchen Wilson, and Taylor Swift. Remembering her mother, Patsy Cline’s daughter reveals she was a ‘hands-on’ mom.

Patsy Cline always wanted to be there for her kids

Sharing on Pasty Cline’s relationship with her family, Julie Fudge revealed that while she had a great career as a singer, life out of the limelight meant the world to her.

When Cline was at home with her husband Charlie Dick and their children, Julie, and Randy, she was her best self. Julie, who is now 61, had the pleasure of being raised by a mom that cared, loved, and cherished her kids.

She revealed to CountryLiving that like any good mom, she tried her best to balance her work and personal life.

She was very much a hands-on mom... She wanted to be there, and even though she loved her work... She really would rather have been at home, I believe.

While her work was important for providing a better future for the kids, she never took her free time with her daughter for granted.

Clearly, the Grammy Lifetime Award winner won more than the hearts of her listeners; she was a great mom too.

The Patsy Cline Museum honors her memory

To honor her mother’s memory and celebrate her trailblazing achievements, Julie was involved in the creation of the Patsy Cline Museum. Her involvement with the museum as a preservationist is personal, and each month, she takes time to give tours and share intimate stories about her mother.

While she may be gone, the Patsy Cline Museum provides a great platform to honor and remember a legend that made good music and paved the way for women in country music.
