Patsy one of 6 finalists in the 87th Shenandoah Apple Blossom's "Got Talent" contest.
Patsy Godley was crowned the 2014 Ms. Senior America on Thursday October 30th, 2014 in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Having been the winner of the Ms. Virginia Senior America Pageant in July, she was sent to Atlantic City where she competed in and won the Ms. Senior America Pageant. 42 states were represented in the pageant and contestants were judged on a scored judges’ interview, talent, evening gown competition and presentation of an original life philosophy. Patsy’s rendition of “Leaving On Your Mind” by Patsy Cline was a real crowd pleaser, and she was so happy to be able to tell everyone that the track she used for the song was none other than her band, Patsy & the Country Classics. This song is featured on the band’s first CD, “Now Appearing” which won the 2014 Traditional Country Music CD of the year award. Patsy is honored to be chosen for this wonderful opportunity, and also hopes it opens many more doors for the band as well. Read More…

Patsy’s reign as Ms. Senior America is almost over and she will be travelling to Atlantic City, NJ in October to crown the new queen. In the meantime, she has been attending many events, including State Pageants, as well as participating in showcases and parades. Speaking of parades she was able to pull “double duty” in Staunton VA on July 4th. She rode in the America’s First Birthday Celebration parade as Ms. Senior America the morning of July 4th and then sang that evening in Patsy and the Country Classics. It was an amazing honor for the band to be invited to headline an event that was performed by the Statler Brothers for many years. They look forward to many more adventures like this one!
It has been a wonderful year for Patsy & the Country Classics! The band has played some exciting, fun events this past year and looks forward to even more in 2016! A few highlights include being the headlining band in Staunton for July 4th (once performed by the incredible Statler Brothers) and being one of the bands in the lineup for Ronnie McDowell at the Fishersville Auto & Truck Show. Patsy crowned the new Ms. Senior America in Atlantic City last October. The new video, The Promise, shows another side of the band that is near and dear to their hearts. And as you can see from the picture, the band has also acquired a bus. We stand ready to continue to do our Patsy Cline Tribute shows, play your events and dances, and do gospel shows as well. Happy 2016!
2016 was such a busy year we didn’t have time for updates! That’s a good place to be, right? There were many awesome happenings in 2016 but the highlight for Patsy, especially, was being asked to sing with David Frizzell at the Fishersville Big Truck and Expo Show. Not only is David an incredibly talented performer, but he and his wife, Jo, are gracious and giving people. When David called Patsy up to the stage to sing with him, she was blown away. Patsy & the Country Classics has had the honor of performing with a lot of “stars” but David Frizzell has been the brightest star yet.
On Sunday, October 8th, Patsy & the Country Classics performed to a sold out show at the Westmoreland Players Theater in Callao, VA. The show was called "An Afternoon of Traditional Country Music with a Special Tribute to Patsy Cline" and was presented in two Acts. Patsy delivered a Patsy Cline Tribute integrating a history of country music during Patsy Cline's time to include female country artists that were influenced by Patsy Cline, as well as highlighting male artists that were also prominent at that time. The attached is a review that appeared in the local paper. Read More…

Gospel CD of the year
October, 2018: Patsy & the Country Classics received the USA Rural Roots Music Commission National 2018 “Classic Country Gospel” CD of the Year award for the their third CD, “The Promise”. The Rural Roots Commission is a subsidiary of the National Traditional Country Music Association. This is the second award the band has received from the NTCMA Rural Roots Commission and their second trip to Fremont, Nebraska. They were awarded the 2014 “Traditional Country CD of the Year” for their first CD entitled “Now Appearing.” The trip is about 2500 miles for the band, and we say every single mile was worth it! As we were leaving, Bob Everhart, the President said “Take a little piece of Nebraska with you.” Not only did we do that, we left a big piece of our hearts with Nebraska. The three day annual NTCMA National Rural Roots Music Gathering, in its 33rd year in Fremont, Nebraska, is an event that will never be forgotten. We were able to reconnect with old friends, and make new ones. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. This is a dream come true!
Patsy & the Country Classics had one of the best weekends ever, and we have a lot of good ones! The 6th Annual Big Truck & Auto Show in Fishersville at the Augusta Expo Center was phenomenal. We had the privilege of being in the line up with Moore & Moore; Dean Miller (son of Roger Miller); Georgette Jones (daughter of George Jones and Tammy Wynette), Dion Pride (son of Charley Pride) and Mel Tillis Jr (son of Mel). Every single one of them was so talented and humble, and shared some really interesting stories about their parents, as well as performing some of their songs. The picture to the right, is of Patsy with Dion Pride, who in her words is "one of the sweetest, purest souls on the planet. His passion for the music, and the gratitude he shows is so inspirational. You cannot be around him and not smile."
