Exhibit Review: You’ll be “CRAZY” About the Patsy Cline Exhibit

by |

Head on down to the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum to experience Patsy Cline: Crazy for Loving You, a fantastic new exhibit of the legendary singer’s brilliant yet brief career. Cline’s life was cut brutally short when, at the tender age of 30, she was killed in a 1963 plane crash near Camden, Tenn. The well-crafted exhibit allows Cline to tell parts of her story via correspondence with family and her first fan club president, Treva Miller, as you move through the intimate space. Sit to take in vintage video projected on a large screen showing Cline and other country music greats sharing the her story. Peruse costumes, photographs, personal belongings and Cline’s treasured salt and pepper shaker collection … all ages will enjoy these. While Cline may be best known for chart toppers like “Crazy,” “Walkin’ After Midnight,“ “I Fall to Pieces,” and the 1985 film Sweet Dreams starring Jessica Lange, the exhibit delves into the real Cline, providing a deeper appreciation for the treasured singer. The exhibit’s here through June 10, 2013, so there’s plenty of time to see it. The Hall of Fame’s located at 222 Fifth Ave. S., Nashville. Hours are daily 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. Admission is $20 adults, $12 ages 6 – 17, free ages 5 and younger. Call 416-2001 or visit countrymusichalloffame.org.
