WINCHESTER, Va. (AP) - An exhibition focusing on the short but significant life of country music legend Patsy Cline is opening this week in Virginia.

The show opens Friday at the Museum of the Shenandoah Valley in Winchester. It will tell the story of Virginia "Ginny" Patterson Hensley before she became Patsy Cline.

Before her death at age 30, Cline recorded the country classics "Crazy" and "Sweet Dreams," among other enduring hits.

Cline spent most of her life in the Shenandoah Valley. The museum exhibit, called "Becoming Patsy Cline," will include rare photographs, video and audio recordings and clothing. The museum says some objects have never been on public display.

The exhibit is on review through Feb. 2, 2014.
