by Patsy Cline
Released: Jan 1962
Cline's final album before the plane crash that took her life, Sentimentally Yours came out a year before her death and features "She's Got You," which was a major hit on both the country and pop charts. The Virginia-born singer was the first female country artist to be taken seriously by the male-dominated Nashville machine, and the album features the beautifully tortured voice and understated arrangements that contributed to her influence on countless singers across a broad range of styles. With some island-y rhythms and gospel-touched backing singers, this defines the Nashville sound.
