– Loretta Lynn released a newly recorded version of "I Fall to Pieces,"
the song recorded by Patsy Cline, today
The song is in celebration of the forthcoming book, "Me & Patsy Kickin' Up Dust," on Grand Central Publishing. Available on April 7, the book written by Lynn with her daughter, Patsy Lynn Russell, presents the portrait of a friendship.
"I Fall to Pieces," one of Cline's most-recognizable hit singles, is available via all digital service providers through Legacy Recordings, a division of Sony Music Entertainment. The song was produced and recorded at the Cash Cabin Studio in Hendersonville, Tenn. by Patsy Lynn Russell and John Carter Cash, who produced Lynn's Grammy-nominated album, "Full Circle" as well as her last studio album "Wouldn't It Be Great."
In 1961, Cline was nearly killed in a car accident and while in the hospital, Lynn appeared on Midnight Jamboree, a radio show that aired after the Grand Ole Opry, and dedicated a performance of Cline's hit "I Fall to Pieces" to the ailing singer. Upon hearing Lynn, Cline had her husband arrange for the fellow singer to pay a visit, and the two quickly became best friends.
