Credited with taking hillbilly music to the city, EDDY ARNOLD (1918-2008) was one of the most popular country artists of all time, virtually dominating the charts in the 1940s and 1950s. Initially influenced by cowboy singers such as Gene Autry, Arnold charted 28 number one hits and has sold over 85 million records. His top recordings include "I'll Hold You in My Heart (Till I Can Hold You in My Arms)" (21 weeks at number one), "Bouquet of Roses (19 weeks at the top of the charts), "What's He Doing in My World?" and "Make the World Go Away". He was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1966. Country music singer/songwriter FARGO writes upbeat songs about love, home and America. In 1972 she had two big crossover hits on the pop charts, "Happiest Girl in the World" and "Funny Face". She continued writing and performing despite developing Multiple Sclerosis in 1979. REED, a songwriter and popular session and tour guitarist, had singles of his own, including his biggest hit, "When You're Hot, You're Hot" (1971). He also appeared in films, often with his friend Burt Reynolds, including all three of the Smokey and the Bandit movies (1977-1983). WILLIAMS' musical style is rowdy "outlaw country", influenced by Southern rock. Initially popular in the 1960s, he made an impressive comeback from a near-fatal mountain climbing accident (1975), which required reconstructive surgery and learning to talk and sing again. He had a string of No. 1 country hits, peaking with three in 1981 ("Texas Women", "Dixie On My Mind" and "All My Rowdy Friends Have Settled Down)". He was named Entertainer of the Year by the Country Music Association in 1987 and again in 1988. He had 15 consecutive gold or platinum selling albums. Fine condition.
