Reba McEntire, Kacey Musgraves Share Their Love for Patsy Cline in New Documentary

Reba McEntire, Kacey Musgraves and other major country artists share their love for the late Patsy Cline in the new trailer for the PBS documentary Patsy Cline: American Masters.

Alongside the photos, music and footage of the late country legend, modern country artists describe the singer and the role she played in country music.

“She came through it, the car wreck, the bad marriage, the poverty that she lived in and having to quit school and go to work,” McEntire says in the trailer. “All of those things made her what she was.”

“She was just kind of a tough girl, you know, singing these really sensitive songs,” Musgraves describes. “So it’s kind of a cool juxtaposition there. I feel like you could go out and have a drink with her but she could also beat your ass.”

Willie Nelson calls the “Walkin’ After Midnight” singer indescribable in his featured interview. Mickey Guyton, LeAnn Rimes, Wanda Jackson and Cline’s daughter, Julie Fudge, also discuss the impact Cline had on their lives. Beverly D’Angelo says she “had the most profound effect on my life of anybody I never met.”
