Jim was returning from Batesville, Arkansas when his plane crashed. He had flown there July 30 to check out some real estate that was for sale- the card from the real estate agent was one of the items found in his billfold. His manager and piano player, Dean Manuel (who didn`t like to fly) accompanied him because he had relatives who lived near Batesville, whom he and Jim visited with the night before the ill-fated return flight, July 31.


Many accounts incorrectly give Jim`s date of birth as August 20, 1924 (including his plaque at the Country Music Hall of Fame and the liner notes on one of his albums). Both his birth certificate and his gravesite give his date of birth as August 20, 1923.

When I got there, there was this little suitcase looking concern on the porch, with a crank, and music was coming from it. I couldn`t understand how all those people could fit inside that little suitcase." - From the 1990 Whitestar Biography "Gentleman Jim Reeves: The Story Of A Legend" (Interview recorded in 1964)
