Nashville - On April 7, museum founders Bill and Shannon Miller, as well as Patsy Cline's daughter, Julie Fudge, cut the ribbon on Nashville's newest attraction, the Patsy Cline Museum.
The museum is filled with costumes, professional and personal possessions and interactive exhibits. Country music fans of the late country queen are treated to a unique experience at the museum. It takes them on a journey from her childhood to her unprecedented success as a female country artist, especially since her music has stood the test of time.
The Patsy Cline Museum is conveniently located on the second floor at 119 Third Avenue South in Nashville; moreover, it houses the largest collection of Patsy Cline artifacts in the world, which includes personal letters, photographs, costumes, clothing and household furnishings from her Nashville dream house that have been locked away for more than 50 years.
Fans and visitors will take a trip down memory lane to her humble beginnings in Virginia, where they can see family photos, possessions and the very booth she worked as a waitress as a teenager at Gaunt's Drugstore. It is comprised of never-before-seen costumes, several of which were designed and sewn by her mother, Hilda. Guests will be afforded the distinct opportunity to step inside Patsy's famed Rec Room, which contains original furnishings that were owned and used by Cline and her husband, Charlie Dick.
A bio film that documents the musical career of Patsy Cline is hosted by actress Beverly D’Angelo, who portrayed Patsy Cline in the 1980 Oscar-winning film Coal Miner’s Daughter starring Sissy Spacek as Loretta Lynn.
