Bigger than Slim Whitman?

Funny. For years after he died his wife was turning out "new" Jim Reeves records by the score.

We had some land near Carthage, Texas, when I was growing up, and every once in a while we had to run into town and get some supplies or whatever (we lived in Shreveport, which was much father away). So we'd pass by a nice roadside memorial to Reeves - a statue, a garden, the whole nine yards.

Definitely one of the greats, and he deserves a statue.
