21 January 1957, Patsy Cline on Arthur Godfrey's Show

PATSY CLINE, (Virginia Patterson Hensley), was born in the Shenandoah Valley in Winchester, Virginia, on September 8, 1932. The family home was in nearby Gore. Legend has it that she was entertaining her neighbors as early as age 3! Her natural talent and spirit took her to the top of the country charts in 1962, and her style and popularity has never waned.

Patsy's big break came when she won an Arthur Godfrey Talent program 21 January 1957 with the hit Walkin' After Midnight. The video in this posting is from this show. From there she pursued a recording career appearing at  the Grand Ole Opry in 1958, and received national awards in 1961 and 1962.
