"I Fall to Pieces" was the first song Cline recorded under her new contract with Decca Records in 1960. Originally, Cline hated the song at first but when it became a huge hit in mid 1961 she realized she liked the song.

The song made Cline a household name and remained as one of her signature songs throughout her career. The song has been redone by countless artists of various genres (like LeAnn Rimes for example) but will forever be linked back to Cline.
