Singing Legend Patti Page Has Died

While classified as a pop singer, Patti Page was as much country singer as she was pop.  Her signature song, “Tennessee Waltz,” not only hit #2 on the country charts, but became one of two songs considered to be the state song of Tennessee.  Page passed away on New Year’s Day at the age of 85.

Born, Clara Ann Fowler in Oklahoma, Page was the third artist to record “Tennessee Waltz” in 1950. The song would go on to become the 3rd best selling song of all time. She also was the first artist to overdub her own voice as a background singer on her records. While it gave her a very distinctive sound, it was done because of a lack of funds to hire background singers.  No cause of death has been given.

Nicknamed the “The Singing Rage, Miss Patti Page,” she continued to tour about 50 dates a year until her death.
