STEAL THEIR STYLE: PATSY CLINE, LORETTA LYNN AND DOLLY PARTON

Try to forget, for just one moment, the enigma that is modern country music. Instead, take yourself back about forty or sixty years to a time period that was the height of country, with Nashville as its epicenter and the Ryman Auditorium as its main stage.

It’s understandable that Johnny Cash might be the first name to come to mind, but there are three very important ladies from that golden time that I just can’t seem to get enough of lately. Yep, I’m talking about the ‘Queens’ of Country–Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn, and Dolly Parton.

While thoughts of over-the-top hair and sequined western shirts may have you running for the hills, for the time being, keep an open mind as we take a little trip down to the quaint ole South.
