Of course, before the Gulf Wars, country musicians were quick to join the USO to play for troops stationed just about anywhere. While only a minority of Nashville’s best served in the military, more than a few on this list may surprise you.
“Patsy Cline is an American music icon and perhaps the most accessible artist in country music history,” says Country Music Hall of Fame and museum director Kyle Young (quote via GAC). “Though she recorded for only eight years and made her last record nearly 50 years ago, her body of work — those classic torch songs and ballads of heartache — have continued to resonate with music fans of all genres.”
