She was the first female solo artist to be inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame and now 'Crazy' country-crooner Patsy Cline will become the first woman to become re-mortalized via Hologram USA. 

You might've heard of the company: It stirred TuPac truthers back in 2012 by creating a Coachella set in the late-rapper's graven image.

For those too young to remember the 1950s-era country phenomenon, she was the first wildly-successful female country crossover artist -- somewhat of a proto-Taylor Swift, if you will. With a distinct voice, she became one of country's first female headliners, and the songs she first made hits have since been covered by Kelly Clarkson, Reba McEntire and countless others -- including LeAnne Rimes, whose own vocal styling is more than a little inspired by Cline's.  

The fact that Hologram USA has increased its ghostly wheelhouse to include a female artist -- who happens to also be the first hologrammed country artist -- is notable, but not surprising. Cline joins a now extensive "roster of deceased celebrities that HUSA has licensed from their respective estates," according to a press release. Liberace, Buddy Holly, and Ray Charles have all appeared from beyond the grave thanks to the technology. 

The Patsy Cline hologram will perform via a pay-per-view internet broadcast in 2016.
