Was one of the volunteer searchers who found the wreckage of his friend and fellow Country Music star Jim Reeves` plane on August 2, 1964, two days after it crashed. Several pictures show Arnold at the sight with several other searchers, with a blanket over Reeves` body, shortly after it was found.

 

(On singing with string-based orchestras to create what became known as "the Nashville sound") I got to thinking, if I just took the same kind of songs I`d been singing and added violins to them, I`d have a new sound.....They [the country music establishment] cussed me, but the disc jockeys grabbed it.....The artists began to say, "Aww, he`s left us". Then, within a year, they were doing it!

 

Touring is really a pretty lonely business.

Al Bartlett - This is not a complete list of Eddy Arnold songs. He also did "Do You Know Where God Lives" and it's missing from the list. There may be others. (1 year ago)
