There is a lot of politics involved and to get Patsy's star there was a very organized PR campaign and as I recall there was money that also had to be paid.
Jim does have a star in Shreveport, however, near the location of the municipal auditorium where the Louisiana Hayride was staged.
Do you recall the sheet of tamps that were enclosed in the Jim Reeves LP "Something Special"? I believe that was Mary's idea to give fans something with which to honor Jim, in lieu of the U.S. postal service agreeing to issue a stamp on him.
