On New Year’s Day, one of music’s great legends, Patti Page, passed away. Page (née Clara Ann Fowler), the best-selling female artist of the 1950s, died at the age of 85 in Encinitas, Calif. But while the beloved singer departed, her music continues to carry on her memory.

In 1950, Page, also known as “The Singin’ Rage,” scored her first million-selling single, “With My Eyes Wide Open, I’m Dreaming.” And between 1950 and 1965, she had 14 more successful singles. But Page is most well-know for her hit “Tennessee Waltz,” which she recorded in 1950. This song alone is one of the top-selling singles of the 20th century and is one of Tennessee’s nine state songs. Page also had three other top singles: “All My Love (Bolero),” “I Went to Your Wedding,” and “(How Much Is That) Doggie in the Window.”
