When a tragic accident claimed Patsy Cline's life in 1963, a future of potential duets between the "Crazy" singer and other artists died as well.

Or so we thought

In 1999, a posthumous album titled Patsy Cline Duets, Volume 1 was released by Mercury Records and Private Music. The album features duets between Cline and other famous country artists, made possible by digitally combining Cline's recordings with those of modern artists.

Two of the many artists that appear with Cline on the album include Willie Nelson and Crystal Gale

One of the more unique pairings on the album is between Cline and outlaw country singer Waylon Jennings. Although the two singers have very different styles, they combine together to create a wonderfully unique rendition of Cline's "Just Out of My Reach." 

"Just Out of My Reach" was originally recored by Virgil "Pappy" Stewart and the Arkansas Cowgirls in 1953. Other artists went on to record the song, including Percy Sledge, George Jones, and Cline. 

In Jennings' and Cline's duet, Cline is the first one to start singing. The song's original background vocals and instrumentals remain in the duet, the only difference is that they are slightly louder.  

After a short while, Jennings starts singing his portion of the duet, his rich, deep voice adding a new dimension to Cline's song. 

But the true magic happens when Cline and Jennings start singing together. Cline's charming sound and Jenning's swoon-worthy voice mesh together perfectly, making for a beautiful duet.

Who would have thought that country's favorite lady and an outlaw could make such wonderful music together?

Go ahead and listen to Cline and Jennings' duet below. After you do, you're sure to keep playing it over and over again!

LYRICS BELOW

Love that runs away from me
Dreams that just won't let me be
Blues that keep on botherin' me
Chains that just won't set me free

Too far away from you
And all your charms
Just out of reach of my
Two open arms

Each night in dreams I see your face
Memories, time cannot erase
Then I awake and find you gone
I'm so blue and all alone

So far away from lips
So sweet and warm
Just out of reach of my
Two open arms

Too far away from lips
So sweet and warm
Just out of reach of my
Two open arms

Each night in dreams I see your face
Memories, time cannot erase
Then I awake and find you gone
I'm so blue and all alone

So far away from lips
So sweet and warm
Just out of reach of my
Two open arms

That lonesome feelin' all the time
Knowing you cannot be mine
Dreams that hurt me in my sleep
Vows that we could never keep

Too far away from lips
So sweet and warm
Just out of reach of my
Two open arms
