Stars are remembering Patti Page, the singer behind "Tennessee Waltz," who died on New Year's Day at 85.

Page was the top-selling female singer of the 1950s with more than 100 million records sold. Among her songs were "You Never Looked That Good When You Were Mine," a collaboration with George Jones.

Jones remembered Page in an email to The Associated Press: "I just loved singing with Patti and she hit notes I never dreamed of. We cut some songs together and it was a great time. She'll be missed by lots of folks and everybody needs to know how great she was. Patti was a wonderful singer with a real special voice."

Actress Evan Rachel Wood, meanwhile, took to Twitter to pay tribute to the late singer: "The amount of times I have lost myself singing a Patti Page song cannot be counted."

Singer Charlie Daniels tweeted: "We've been using Patti Page's Tennessee Waltz to open our show for decades. We salute you Mam"

Carrie Underwood wrote: "Rest in peace, Patti Page...a fellow Oklahoman who helped pave the way for so many of us ladies in music."

Actress/singer Patti LuPone tweeted: "RIP Patti Page. She has "Crossed Over the Bridge" into "Old Cape Cod". #Love #Singin'Rage"

Songwriter Diane Warren tweeted: "RIP Patti Page. Thank U for the music."

Bebe Buell wrote: "RIP Patti Page. I grew up with her voice... a pioneer and one of a kind innovator. xoxo"

Neil Portnow, CEO of The Recording Academy, released the following statement: "Grammy winner Patti Page was an extremely talented artist known for her unique and smooth vocal style.

No relation. Patti Page’s real name is Clara Ann Fowler.

OMG - catch me off guard as 1 of those times I assumed she was already dead!

Doesn’t anyone remember her “How Much is that Doggie in the Window?”

We still have sheet music; mom must’ve bought it or something.

The Hound Dog in the Window--Homer & Jethro--a song which answers both Patti Page's The Doggie in the Window and Big Mama Thornton's Hound Dog. All of these are from 1953.

She was the best and my favorite. I would see her on TV and marvel at her delivery and voice. She had a way of flicking her hand that was special as she was singing.

“Old Cape Cod” was my favorite.

What a set of pipes.

Remember her name on the Vegas billboard in “Godfather”.

“Doesn’t anyone remember her “How Much is that Doggie in the Window?””

Oh, yes. I was about 5 years old (I don’t remember that part, Wiki says 1953). I do remember singing it walking from the school bus stop to my house after school, and at times in the yard around the house. It must have been played on the radio. It would still come back, at unpredictable times over the years, even a few months ago I think. Maybe when playing with my dog??? (Or I am beyond the bend.)

Lots better remembering those days than the last few.

That’s the song that has been stuck in my head since I heard. It was my favorite song in those days.

I had never heard that until I got my mother the big ‘50s compilation set. Nice song. Actually, I never knew anything she did outside Doggie and Waltz.

RIP Patty, got five or six of her songs on my Ipod I listen to on my daily walks, the fifties was my teenage years and my music is mostly from that time classic country, little doo-wop and blues, it was our time and the best of time, in some ways I have returned to that time, as the present time don’t seem to agree with me to much, both music and politic.
A little nostalgia some time help to sooth the troubled harth. soon all the great ones from that time are gone, and so little to replace them.

“Tennessee Waltz” was my dad’s favorite song and always reminds me of him when I here it. It was the only “favorite” he ever had...by Patti Page, of course.

“How Much Is That Doggie” was sung what seemed like 10 years on the old TV show “Your Hit Parade”. They had trouble coming up with a set for the song each time as I recall.
