Patsy Cline: American Masters

Patsy_Cline_American_MastersPatsy Cline defined modern country music by using her singular talent and heart-wrenching emotional depth to break down barriers of gender, class and genre. In her music and her life, Cline set a standard of authenticity that artists still strive toward.

After years of hard work to overcome gender biases and her own personal hardships and professional missteps, she achieved success ‐‐ only to have it punctuated by uncanny premonitions and her untimely death at age 30.

With exclusive access to the Cline estate, the film, "When Patsy Cline Was Crazy" presented by American Masters, features rare performances, exclusive archival interviews with Cline's contemporaries, and new interviews with a wide range of contemporary artists across musical genres that have been influenced by Cline.

Narrated by Rosanne Cash, the film examines the roots of Cline’s impact in both personal and cultural terms to illuminate how Cline arrived at a pivotal moment in the evolution of American culture and synthesized hillbilly, pop and rock in a new way.
