Patsy Cline show upcoming at Whisenhunt Center
Sherrill Douglas recreates an actual Patsy Cline concert.
GLADEWATER Sherrill Douglas has been recognized by Patsy Cline fans as the number one Patsy Cline tribute artist in the World. She has accurately duplicated Patsy Cline's costumes and sounds so much like Patsy the audience often thinks that she is lip-syncing.
Ms. Douglas will perform all the hits of Patsy Cline such as, "Crazy," "Sweet Dreams," "Walkin' after Midnight," "I Fall to Pieces," "She's Got You," plus many more at the Whisenhunt Center August 4.
"Sherrill authentically portrays the late Ms. Cline and recreates an actual Patsy Cline concert," says Whisenhunt Center owner Joan Sturkie.
"I started singing the music of Patsy Cline when I was 10 years old to impress my father," says Ms. Douglas. "Later, I began to sing professionally and I thought it would be fun for everyone if I dressed up as Patsy so the audience would feel that they were actually seeing Patsy in concert. I am very honored that God blessed me with the voice to keep the music of this legendary superstar alive," said Ms. Douglas.
Patsy Cline perished with her manager and several other famous country singers in a plane crash in 1963 after returning from a benefit concert in Kansas City.
Ms. Douglas is a life-long entertainer and is based in Dallas. She is currently selling out theatres nationally and internationally. Ms. Douglas also impersonates Dolly Parton, Loretta Lynn and Stevie Nicks.
