One of the greatest Country singers that was taken from us too soon, Patsy’s wonderful talent still today shows why she was considered the “Oueen” of Country music. Thanks to the Internet we can still listen to her wonderful voice and appreciate her great talent after all these years.
“I believe I can sing just a little bit of it. Let’s try it, fellas,” Bobby Lord says, calling on his bandmates to strike up the tune. With that, these two issued a genuinely magical duet that was a nearly-forgotten piece of Cline’s brilliant legacy, until now!
Country music fans have been tuning in to the Grand Ole Opry since its inception in 1925. Country music greats and living legends have graced the stage and filled the airwaves with mournful melodies and toe-tapping tunes.
One night, back in 1962, country music was blessed with an incredible duet during one of the Grand Ole Opry’s famous PET Milk shows, and now, you too can enjoy this unforgettable piece of history!
Patsy Cline sauntered out onto the stage with a beaming smile on her face and joined Lord front and center before suggesting they sing the timeless country ballad “(Remember Me) I’m The One Who Loves You.”
The Opry has set the stage for some of the most memorable duets in music history. Dolly Parton & Porter Wagner, Johnny Cash & June Carter, Loretta Lynn & Conway Twitty all come to mind. One of my absolute favorite duets of all time is this very performance by the legendary songstress, Patsy Cline and the incredible crooner, Bobby Lord.
‘During this 1962 televised performance, the host complimented Lord on his “fine singing” and suggested that since both he and Cline were such great musicians that they saddle on up to the microphones and sing a little ditty together!
Known for her hit songs “Crazy” and “I Fall to Pieces,” Patsy Cline was invited to appear on the PET Milk Grand Ole Opry show on April 16, 1962.
Bobby Lord had already experienced a great deal of chart success himself. His hits, “Without Your Love”, “No More,” and not to “Walking the Floor Over You” were chart-toppers and marked a place for Lord in the music industry.
“I believe I can sing just a little bit of it. Let’s try it, fellas,” Lord says, calling on his bandmates to strike up the tune. With that, these two issued a genuinely magical duet that was a nearly-forgotten piece of Cline’s brilliant legacy, until now!
(Remember Me) I’m The One Who Loves You” is a song written and originally sung by Stuart Hamblen, which he released in 1950. The song was also a hit for Ernest Tubb the same year, and Dean Martin in 1965.
Although we lost the effervescent talent of Miss Patsy Cline when she was tragically killed in a plane crash caused by bad weather in 1963, her memory lives on and fans the world round are thrilled by the discovery of this once thought lost footage.
