The Academy of Country Music (ACM) has announced that Eric Church (Eric WHO?)...is the winner of the 2015 Jim Reeves International Award. |
Never heard of him? You're not alone.
Given the politics of these awards who knows how this came about? Just like when they gave the award to BUCK OWENS, a Reeves nemesis whom Jim despised because the ole buckaroo ripped Jim off and didn't pay him for shows and ended up being a multi-multi-millionaire.
We of course are not lumping Mr. Church in the same category as Mr. Owens!!
We just wish we knew who this guy was that he is deserving of an award bestowed in the name of an artist -- Jim Reeves -- who took country music internationally, before there was the internet or satellite communication.
But then, the ACM also gave the Reeves award to a TV host, Merv Griffin, several years ago and it's hard to figure out what Merv did to promote country music worldwide.
