Eddy Arnold
Original name: Richard Edward Arnold
Birth: May 15, 1918
Death: May 8, 2008

Country Music Singer. A country gentleman who brought style and innumerable fans to country music, he was at heart just a "Tennessee Plowboy". During his career he sold more than 85 million records starting in the 1940's and ending with his last and 100th album "After All This Time" released in 2005. He ranks as Billboard magazine's single most popular country artist of all time. Some of his popular hits include, "The Cattle Call", "Make the World Go Away", and "Then You Can Tell Me Goodbye". In the 1950s, he began to reach beyond strictly country. He was on TV shows, including Arthur Godfrey's Talent Scouts and The Perry Como Show. In the '80s and '90s, he remained a popular concert draw. Though he was a multi-millionaire, he still cherished dining at a simple restaurant with old friends. His impact on country music is considered unparalleled by anyone else. Eddy Arnold gave dignity and respect to country music at a time when it was referred to as 'hillbilly music'. (bio by: Ron Moody)

Not a cowboy, he was a Tennessee plow boy. Rest in peace Mr. Arnold. Bless you for blessing us with your music.
