When the world gets too loud and your life gets crowded with stress, worry and way too many things to do, sometimes you have to take a moment to listen to a song.

And when a song is timeless, that song can transport you to a sweeter time.

And country music was never as sweet as the time Patsy Cline was singing it.

During a July performance at the Grand Ole Opry, rising country star Cam took on Patsy’s hit “Crazy,” much to the delight of everyone in attendance.

“Often when I am at the Opry, I think about how Patsy Cline was on the same stage,” Cam said in a recent Opry Moments interview. “For me, Patsy is like untouchable. That bears the standard for you. When you get to make your own music, that’s what’s familiar. That’s what the epitome of musicianship to be kinda like that person.”

Patsy has long been a huge inspiration for Cam. “Not only is the early music you listen to as a musician affect you, but as a person it also affects you. My early memories are of my grandma and grandpa and one of the best loves stories was the one where they would dance on the wood floor to some of her slow songs.”
