Patsy Cline is an EP released by American country music singer, Patsy Cline on August 14, 1961. It Cline's third EP to be released.

This was Cline's second EP to be self-titled. The EP contained two songs Cline had recorded under her last session from Four Star Records ("There He Goes" and "Lovesick Blues") and two new songs recorded under new label, Decca Records ("I Fall to Pieces" and "Lovin' in Vain"). At the time of its release, Cline had released "I Fall to Pieces" as a single, where it had already reached #1 on the Billboard Country chart, and eventually #12 on the Pop chart. Two months prior, she had been involved in a serious automobile accident, therefore and album could not be released. Instead, Decca issued her first EP, containing "I Fall to Pieces."
