Always... Patsy Cline

Always... Patsy Cline

Always... Patsy Cline

Always...Patsy Kline

Louise Seger was a big fan of Patsy Cline. She harassed a local DJ to play Cline’s music in the late 50s. In 1961, Seger and friends were 90 minutes early for Cline’s concert in a barn-sized restaurant/auditorium. In walked Cline, and Seger had the gumption to introduce herself. They became soulmates. Always is based on Cline’s music and their lifelong friendship.
