American Idol Season 18 alum Lauren Mascitti recently shared a stunning cover of Patsy Cline’s “I Fall To Pieces,” once again proving her love for classic country music.
Mascitti shared her cover across her social media accounts and revealed that she chose to sing “I Fall To Pieces” after Cline was on her mind that morning.
Co-written by Hank Cochran and Harlan Howard, “I Fall To Pieces” was a hit single from Cline’s second studio album, Showcase. The track topped not only the country charts, but also climbed the pop charts, making it one of Cline’s most notable songs of her wildly successful career.
The song was previously released as a duet by Aaron Neville and Trisha Yearwood, so Mascitti had big shoes to fill with her ambitious cover. She did not disappoint!

After auditioning for Idol with her original song, “If I Can Lose You,” the Ohio native earned a “Yes” from judges Katy Perry, Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie.
She continued to impress the judges each week with covers including “Don’t It Make Your Brown Eyes Blue” by Crystal Gayle and “Jackson” by Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash. Mascitti nearly secured a spot in the Top 20 with her performance of “Two More Bottles of Wine” by Emmylou Harris in the Hawaii Round, but was sent home after losing the public vote.
Despite her time ending on Idol, the budding country star has used the momentum to continue to rise in the Nashville music scene. Mascitti recently fulfilled her lifelong dream of taking the legendary Grand Ole Opry stage for her debut performance this past May.
“If I debuted at the Opry, I would die happy. That is the ultimate goal for me. That is hollowed ground. I’ve dreamed of having a Grand Ole Opry debut my entire life and that would be the ultimate for me,” Mascitti shared in an interview with Country Now in June of 2020.
