When Loretta Lynn first came to Nashville in 1960–a broke young mother trying to navigate the country music business–Patsy Cline was a star, soon to have her chart-topping hit “I Fall to Pieces.” Loretta’s decision to sing the song on the radio led to one of the most influential relationships of her life. In Me & Patsy Kickin’ Up Dust she tells the story of a remarkable friendship that ended in Patsy’s tragic and untimely death at the age of thirty.
Patsy and Loretta were two trailblazers who’d be damned if they’d let men or convention tell them how to sing or perform. Together they stood up to venues shortchanging female singers and put their foot down with demanding managers. Instead of competing against each other, they forged a friendship. They leaned on each other while balancing touring and raising children, writing songs and making dinner. They were taking on the industry together, and they seemed to be winning when, on March 5, 1963, Patsy’s plane went down just outside Nashville. That day, Loretta’s life as she’d known it stopped, and she’s spent the rest of her career trying to honor her friend and what they started all those years ago.
Tender and fierce, Me & Patsy Kickin’ Up Dust is an up-close-and-personal portrait of a friendship that defined a generation and change country music indelibly–as well as a meditation on love, loss, and legacy.
