Gentleman Jim Reeves: the country crooner who conquered Britain

New piece of mine from the Daily Express. 

HE WAS one of the first artists to take country music out of the US and give it a global appeal.
In some parts of the world the Texan crooner “Gentleman” Jim Reeves – renowned for his pleasant persona and wonderfully smooth, soothing voice – became even more popular than Elvis Presley. 
Even his tragic early death at 40 in a light aeroplane crash didn’t halt his chart success, as a radio documentary presented by Sir Terry Wogan reveals. Reeves went on to register No 1 hits from beyond the grave.
