Yesterday's crazy weather had me humming Crazy, the old Willie Nelson song.

In the early 60s, Crazy didn't appeal to many Nashville producers, who thought the song was too off-beat and not country enough. Several artists passed on the song.

Patsy Cline wasn't interested in recording Crazy - she wanted "Funny How Time Slips Away," but that Nelson song was snatched up by Billy Walker. Cline's producer convinced her to give Crazy a shot, and she was the first of many lucky artists to lend their voices to that tune.

Read the whole story at American Songwriter website.

Enjoy Patsy Cline's magnificent rendition:
