Lynn released a book, a week before her birthday, in honor and celebration of her friendship with the late Patsy Cline.

Titled "Me & Patsy Kickin' Up Dust," the book followed the legendary adventures the two had for the two years they knew each other before Cline's tragic death in a plane crash.

Struck with grief, the singer named her daughter, Patsy Lynn Russel, who co-wrote the book with her, after her late friend.

In 1983, Lynn teamed up with an old mutual friend of hers and Cline, Ray Stevens, to pay tribute to Patsy at the CMA's 25th-anniversary concert.

Since her days on the stage, the country music legend has stolen many hearts with her music and her personality, and they all couldn't help but celebrate the wonderful woman.
