Loretta Lynn Releases Animated New Video for Cover of Patsy Cline’s “I Fall to Pieces” [Watch]

Loretta Lynn released an animated video for her new cover of Patsy Cline’s “I Fall to Pieces.” Created by director Aaron Ray, the video celebrates Loretta and Patsy’s friendship and features custom illustrations and animations.

Written by Hank Cochran and Harlan Howard, “I Fall to Pieces” was Patsy’s first No. 1 hit on the country charts in 1961. Before her death in a plane crash in 1963, Patsy was an established star who took up-and-comer Loretta under her wing to help her navigate the male-dominated world of country music.

“Friendship can help us during difficult times, like what we are all going through now,” says Loretta. “I wanted to share this song and video in honor of Patsy. She was my friend, mentor, my strength and I miss her to this day.”

Loretta’s new recording was released in celebration of her new book, Me & Patsy Kickin’ Up Dust (April 7), which was penned by Loretta and daughter Patsy Lynn Russell. According to a press release, the book is an “up-close-and-personal portrait of a friendship that defined a generation and changed country music indelibly–and a meditation on love, loss and legacy.”
