C.J. Newsom - Patsy Cline Remembered

For more than 50 years, Branson has been home to the best country music shows in the nation, and the folks at the “Patsy Cline Remembered” show, named the 2014 Matinee Show of the Year, are doing their best to keep that reputation alive and well.

Starring C.J. Newsom, the sweet and lovable Missouri gal with a big voice, and her “All-Star” band known as the Re-Cliners, the show takes the audience on a fun, entertaining and emotional ride through the life story of an American icon.
“It saddens me when younger people don’t know who Patsy Cline is, or don’t know any of those great songs,” the passionate C.J. has said. “My goal is to do whatever I can to help as many people as possible remember the legacy of such a great performer, especially the younger generation.”

Breaking Out

After performing in several Branson shows, C.J. decided to break out on her own and follow her dreams. In 2013, she opened the “Patsy Cline Remembered” – Branson’s Classic Country Music show.
Her goal was to not only pay tribute to Patsy, but tell the story of her life without doing an “imitation” of her. There was no way she could do that without starting her own show.
“I didn’t want to sing just a couple of songs because that would just scratch the surface,” she said. “Patsy, the lady, and her music, well that was worthy of an entire show.”
As C.J. combed the Cline catalog, she knew she had some tough choices, as far as song selection was concerned.
“We went with popularity a lot, but she also has so many ballads, traditional country and fun songs to choose froms,” she laughed. “We ended up mixing it up, and we have nice variety.”
C.J. performs Cline hits like “Crazy,” “Walkin’ After Midnight,” “Back In Baby’s Arms” and so many more of Cline’s most popular tunes.

With the perfect voice and the perfect playlist, she then had to make a decision regarding whether she’d sing to tracks, or to a live band.
“I realized a live band sounds so much better and we are able to do so much more,” she said. “Patsy’s music was so elaborate, and there was so much to it, we ended up with a five piece band.”
The five piece band, known as the Re-Cliners. Members of the band include guitarist Josh Carroll, Terry Laird on the piano, Craig White on drums, Justin Herzog strumming the upright bass and Greg Moody who handles the steel guitar, banjo, mandolin and fiddle.

With that much talent and passion on stage, “Patsy Cline Remembered” is one of those rare shows that makes you laugh, makes you cry, entertains and educates.
