Some years ago Merle talked about the night he was playing as a young artist in Las Vegas and "in walked THE Jim Reeves and THE Patsy Cline" together to see his show. He was quite intimidated by the prospect of performing in front of these two stars. |
I tried to pin down the date when both Jim and Patsy were in Vegas at the same time, and never could confirm that. However, I know Jim was there at least one other time than the dates I describe in my book, because I have seen photos of Jim with his wife Mary together in Vegas, and yet I have no details of that particular visit.
So I don't doubt Merle's account.
