Lifetime has released a biopic entitled “Patsy & Loretta” which is about the life of celebrity best friends, Patsy Cline and Loretta Lynn.
Patsy Cline is a legendary country singer who died in a plane crash when she was 30 years old in 1963. The crash happened when Cline and fellow country singers Cowboy Copas and Hawkshaw Hawkins were returning home from doing several benefit concerts for DJ Jack Call.
“Patsy & Loretta” was co-produced by Cline’s daughter, Julie Fudge together with Loretta Lynn’s daughter, Patsy Lynn.
The biopic premiered yesterday, October 19 and has Megan Hilty playing the role of Patsy and Jessie Mueller playing the role of Patsy’s best friend, Loretta, as per Cinema Blend.
“There are always emotional moments when we deal with mom and her legacy and her music and telling her story. But at the same time we really like sharing, it keeps her alive, it keeps her vivid,” Fudge stated.
Apparently, some parts of the film took place in the house where Cline’s family have lived during the last year of Cline’s life.
“Don’t worry about me, Hoss. When it’s my time to go, it’s my time to go,” was the last words of Patsy Cline, said while she refused an offer from Dottie West to come home via car.
According to Good Housekeeping, the cause of the plane crash was the pilot’s inexperience and the harsh weather conditions during that time.
Patsy Cline’s most iconic songs include “Crazy,” “Walkin’ After Midnight,” “I Fall To Pieces” and “She’s Got You.”
