Jim Reeves was one of the best of the "Nashville Sound" style country and western singers. His fame was widespread, not only in the USA, but also in Britain, India, Scandanavia and South Africa. Born in 1923 in Panola County, Texas, Jim after college began to pursue a professional baseball career but was sidelined by an injury to his leg while a pitcher with the Houston Buffaloes. He also for a brief period was a full-time radio announcer. He began his recording career in 1945, and also composed his own songs. The peak of his career came in late 1959-early 1960 with the success of the single "He'll Have To Go", which reached number 2 in the U.S. hit record charts and number 12 in Britain, ultimately reaching three million in sales. After his success he made successful tours of the U.S., Scandinavia and South Africa.
