FILM LOOP: A SELECTION OF PERFORMANCES BY JIM REEVES
Thursday, July 31, 2014 - 09:00am
Jim Reeves stands as one of the most distinctive singers in the history of country music. His smooth, warm baritone was a major component of the sophisticated, pop-influenced Nashville Sound that emerged during the late 1950s and early 1960s and boosted country music to new commercial heights. He died in a plane crash on July 31, 1964, and was elected posthumously to the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1967. This film loop contains performances of some of his classic songs including “Adios Amigo,” “Billy Bayou,” and “He’ll Have to Go.” 30 minutes. Takes place in the Museum’s Ford Theater.
PROGRAM ADMISSION: Museum admission or Museum membership required for program admittance.
