The musical play, complete with down home country humor, true emotion and even some audience participation, includes many of Patsy's unforgettable hits such as CRAZY, I FALL TO PIECES, SWEET DREAMS, WALKING AFTER MIDNIGHT.  The show's title was inspired by Patsy's letters to Louise, which were consistently signed "Love always...
