A Hank Hit
While performing live on Jubilee USA, Cline did her own rendition of the Hank Williams hit, “Lovesick Blues.” Williams released the song in February of 1949 and it became an instant hit success. With over 50,000 copies sold within the first two weeks of its release, Williams had brought a new sound to country music. It wasn’t long before “Lovesick Blues” became known as Williams signature song, leaving fans still swooning over it.

Patsy’s Unique Talent
As Cline took the stage after a much-anticipated intro from Eddy Arnold she jumped right into the song. In a long white skirt with a striped button-up, the country icon graced the audience with her powerhouse vocals. Cline hit every note with flying colors without a smile leaving her face. For the final verse of the song, she goes into her highest octave to hold out the note.
The audience went wild, with claps and cheers resonating throughout the studio.
