    Gentleman Jim Reeves was perhaps the biggest male star to emerge from the Nashville sound. Peaking at number four, "Yonder Comes a Sucker" was his first Top Ten hit for RCA in the summer of 1955. It kicked off a remarkable streak of 40 hit singles, most of which charted in the Top Ten. Reeves was at the height of his career when his private plane crashed outside of Nashville on July 31, 1964. Though Reeves had died, his popularity did not vanish -- in fact, his sales increased following his death. Reeves was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1967, and two years later, the Academy of Country Music instituted the Jim Reeves Memorial Award.
