This is only one of three roles for which Meryl Streep was turned down.
References to Patsy Cline's friendship with Loretta Lynn were left out of the script as producers felt their relationship was already covered in Coal Miner's Daughter (1980).

At one point, Charlie asks Patsy what she's done all day and she responds, "I've been sipping champagne with Kirk Douglas". When the scene was filmed Jessica Lange actually said, "I've been sipping champagne with Rock Hudson", but Hudson was revealed to have had AIDS before the film was released and the producers thought a reference to him would be distracting.
