The Patsy Cline: $10 Million Net Worth
Patsy Hensley was the eldest of three children born to Hilda Virginia Hensley, a seamstress, and Samuel Lawrence Hensley, a blacksmith. Hilda Virginia was a seamstress, and Samuel Lawrence was a blacksmith.
Patsy’s passion in music began at a young age, when she joined her mother in singing in a church choir in their neighbourhood. When she was 15 years old, her father abandoned the family, prompting her to drop out of high school in order to provide financial assistance to her mother and her three younger siblings.
During the day, she worked as a soda jerk and a server at the Triangle Diner in her hometown, and at night, she performed at local nightclubs. The next year, she approached Jimmy McCoy, a disc jockey for a local radio station, who offered her the opportunity to perform live on the air.
As a result of the positive response she received from the crowd, she was soon invited to participate in a variety of talent events around the country. In 1954, she began appearing regularly on Connie B. Gay’s Town and Country Jamboree radio show, where she performed with Jimmy Dean, establishing the foundation for her net worth and paving the way for a successful music career.
At the beginning of her career, Patsy Cline’s songs were generally well received by the public, prompting her to experiment with many genres such as country music, honky-tonk, and rockabilly before settling on pop music as her primary genre. Patsy had recorded 17 singles before she was sadly died in an automobile accident.
After performing at a benefit event in memory of Jack McCall, she promptly boarded an aeroplane with the Cowboy Copas band, Hawkshaw Hawkins, her manager and pilot Randy Hughes. She died in the plane crash that night. After becoming caught in turbulence, the jet crashed about 85 miles (137 kilometres) west of Nashville, in the Tennessee mountains.
Her songs “Sweet Dreams,” “Faded Love,” and “Leavin’ on Your Mind” all charted in the Top 10 of the Country Music charts after her death, resulting in a significant rise in the number of record copies sold after her death.
Patricia Cline was posthumously inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1970, and she was awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 1999 for her contributions to the music industry.
When it comes to her personal life, it is known that she was married twice – once from 1953 and 1957 to Gerald Cline, and then again between 1957 until her death in 1963 to Charlie Dick, with whom she had two children – and that she was divorced once.
