The track and video are in celebration of the book “Me & Patsy Kickin’ Up Dust” (released April 7 through Grand Central Publishing), an up-close-and-personal portrait of a friendship that defined a generation and changed country music indelibly–and a meditation on love, loss and legacy. The “I Fall to Pieces” video includes quotes from the book.
Lynn’s newly recorded version of “I Fall to Pieces,” one of Cline’s most-recognizable hit singles was released via all digital service providers on April 3, through Legacy Recordings, a division of Sony Music Entertainment. The track was recorded at the Cash Cabin Studio in Hendersonville, Tennessee and produced by Patsy Lynn Russell and John Carter Cash, who produced Lynn’s Grammy-nominated album, Full Circle, as well as her last studio album Wouldn’t It Be Great, which received a Grammy nomination for the song, “Wouldn’t It Be Great?”
In the spring of 1961, Cline suffered severe injuries in a car accident. While Cline was in the hospital, Lynn appeared on Midnight Jamboree, a radio show that aired after the Grand Ole Opry, and dedicated a performance of Cline’s hit “I Fall to Pieces” to the ailing singer. Upon hearing Lynn, Cline had her husband arrange for the fellow singer to pay a visit, and the two clicked immediately.
“Friendship can help us during difficult times, like what we are all going through now. I wanted to share this song and video in honor of, Patsy, said Loretta.” “She was my friend, mentor, my strength and I miss her to this day. “
