The bigger your hair, the closer you are to God, and definitely Megan Hilty and Jessie Mueller’s upcoming Lifetime music biopic by association. Deadline reports that the duo has signed on to portray country-music legends Patsy Cline and Loretta Lynn in Patsy & Loretta for the network, which chronicles their friendship leading up to the untimely death of Cline in 1963. (Lynn, at 86, is currently doing great with the help of some medicinal marijuana, thank you very much.) The duo, despite being initially pitted against each other by the industry, became close pals while working in Nashville during the golden age of country, which resulted in them “touring together, bonding over their husband troubles, and commiserating on being females in the male-dominated music business.” The film will premiere later this year. Yeehaw!
