Patsy Cline's daughter Julie Fudge added her own real-life memories into Patsy & Loretta, and some of the filming took place in the house where the family lived in the previous year of Cline's life. "[Patsy and Loretta] is just such a happy program that I really didn't feel a lot of sadness". "We safe to enact what we enact because of the of the ladies who've performed it".
