    • Diana: I grew up listening to Patsy Cline. I was a huge Patsy Cline fan. I still am. Even though she's considered country, I think of her more as a blues singer. She's got a great blues voice and she has such an amazing story, which I always loved. I knew her entire greatest hits album backwards, forwards and inside out. My mother would try and skip over some of the songs to make the tape shorter and I'd go, "Hey, you missed one! You missed one!"
