Plus, she looks like a Mad Men character, so we’re onboard. At 8 p.m. Monday, Line brings her Live in the Sunshine tour to the Civic Center Music Hall, 201 N. Walker. Tickets are $44.

Patsy Cline, 12 Greatest Hits (1988)

I listened to this tape so many times in my Walkman, I actually ruined it. I was about 6 or 7, and didn’t realize I’d spend my entire life trying to create a similar buttery warmth and womanly tone. Her heart spills through, and nothing sounds contrived or put-on. My first time performing with a live band was when I sang “Leavin’ on Your Mind” on the Oklahoma Opry. I was 9, and I sounded ridiculous because I was trying to make myself sound just like Patsy. I even had my Mom make me an exact replica of Patsy’s outfit.
