Country singers Patsy ClineCowboy Copas and Hawkshaw Hawkins were killed in a plane crash near Camden, Tennessee. They were traveling to Nashville from Kansas City where they had performed at a benefit for  the widow of disc jockey ‘Cactus’ Jack Call, who had died in a car crash. The events that led the crash – an inexperienced pilot, heavy fog and poor flying conditions – were eerily similar to the plane crash in which Buddy Holly perished.
