March 5, 1963: Country music stars Patsy Cline, Cowboy Copas, and Hawkshaw Hawkins died in a plane crash near Camden, Tennessee. Unlike the deaths of other stars like Jimmie Rodgers or Hank Williams, the death of the three did not cause cover versions, soundalikes, or tribute songs that tried to profit from the tragedy. The Brair release of Rusty Adams and Kathy Dee is believed to be the only one that appeared right after the crash.
Rusty Adams also had a release on D Records and was a one of Tops Records' soundalike singers in the 1950s. Kathy Dean was possibly also known as Kathy Dee (1933-1968) recorded also for Carlton in the early 1960s, Decca, United Artists, and B-W. She was also a featured act on the WWVA Jamboree.
