No. 20: Patsy Cline, ‘Crazy’ – Top 100 Country Love Songs

Decca

In 1961, Willie Nelson – then an accomplished songwriter — penned the song ‘Crazy’ for country singer Billy Walker. When Walker turned the tune down, Patsy Cline picked it up and became famous for her rendition of the melancholy love song.

Cline’s version of ‘Crazy’ hit airwaves in late 1961, and quickly became a crossover hit for the iconic country star. This addition to the Top 100 Country Love Songs list spent 21 weeks on the charts, eventually climbing to No. 2 on the country charts and No. 9 on the Hot 100 chart. Cline became a crossover success, and her voice is still instantly recognizable when today’s country music fans hear ‘Crazy.’
