The Petersens are a family band consisting of four siblings and their mother. They perform live in Branson, MO, a hub for country performers.
The Petersens cover a country music hit song by the incomparable Patsy Cline in this video. “She’s Got You” was made famous by Cline in the 1960s.
This song became an anthem for women everywhere who were left with mementos like photos, love letters, and records from failed relationships.
Ellen Petersen is the group’s lead vocalist, and her voice was made for country music. In this rendition of Cline’s song, Ellen’s brother strums the guitar, her sister plays the violin, and her mother plays the upright bass.
The Petersens are clearly a family of musicians who really practice their craft. The audience claps as soon as Ellen sings the first line, “I’ve got the picture you gave me…”
Katie, the violinist of the family, has a short solo in the middle of the performance. She plays her instrument beautifully, adding to the emotion of the cover song.
This family band performs Patsy Cline’s standard earnestly. Their sincerity makes this a lovely cover of “She’s Got You” and a fitting tribute to the legend that is Patsy Cline.
