Event to memorialize Patsy Cline plane crash

CAMDEN, Tenn. (AP) -- A three-day event in Camden featuring concerts, speakers and a vigil will mark the 50th anniversary of the plane crash that killed country music star Patsy Cline and three others.

The Benton County/Camden County Chamber of Commerce is holding the event starting on Thursday, and running through Saturday to honor the memory and musical legacies of Cline, Cowboy Copas, Hawkshaw Hawkins and Randy Hughes. All four were killed in 1963 when their Nashville-bound plane crashed in Camden.

The commemoration will feature Grand Ole Opry stars Bill Anderson and Jan Howard, country group The Grascals and singer Mandy Barnett.
