Re: Collector Postage Stamps
It would be wonderful to see Country music honored in this way. To the best of my knowledge, I don't think there have been any Country music stamps issued here in America, but if the American Postal system should ever choose to do this, they would have to issue a stamp on Jim. I'm sure the first artists that might come to mind to be honored in this way would be someone like Jimmie Rodgers or Hank Williams---and they would deserve such an honor---but let's not forget that Jim Reeves was one of the first Country music singers to cross over into the Pop charts and sell a lot of records there as well, and I believe he was also the very first Country artist to sell millions of records worldwide, which is an outstanding accomplishment. He should certainly be considered one of the pioneers of Country music along with some of the other great artists.
