1961 Music Thursdays: Patsy Cline’s “Crazy”

Patsy Cline originally didn’t want to record “Crazy,” which was written by Willie Nelson, because she thought it was too difficult to sing. The first recording session was apparently stressful and didn’t yield a great version of the song.

Luckily, she went back in to the studio again and out came the version we all know and love.

The song was a crossover Country and Pop hit in 1961 and is considered her signature song.
