Country Roads: Patsy Cline's Home
But the main reason I'd like to feature little 'ol Winchester is because it is the birth place (and resating place) of Patsy Cline. Before there was Taylor or Carrie, or Reba or Shania, or even Dolly - there was Patsy. She was the first true female country star and her influence is till felt today. Every time you feel your heart strings pulled by a great country ballad, that's the echo of Patsy's "Crazy" coming down through the years. And to honor Patsy Cline the nonprofit, Celebrating Patsy Cline Inc., has purchased and renovated Patsy's home in Winchester. The organization will open Patsy's home (where she lived from 1948-1957) at 608 S. Kent St. for public tours starting Tuesday, August 2nd. No word yet on whether they'll feature Waliking After Midnight tours, but you can call for details at 540-662-5555.
