James Travis ˝Jim˝ Reeves (August 20, 1923 – July 31, 1964) was an American country and popular music singer-songwriter, record charting from the 1950s to the 1980s, who, since the end of the 1950s, is well-known for being a practitioner of the new established, so-called Nashville sound (a mixture of older country-style music with elements of popular music).
Known as Gentleman Jim, his songs continued to score the charts for years after his death.
Reeves died at age 40 in the crash of a private airplane.
He is a member of both the Country Music and Texas Country Music Halls of Fame.
