Source: Wikipedia

Richard Edward Arnold, known professionally as Eddy Arnold, was among the most popular country music singers in American history and helped create the Nashville sound during the late 1950s. He sold more than 85 million records and had 147 songs on the top charts, including 28 number one hits on Billboard's Country Singles chart. Arnold transcended changing musical tastes for more than 50 years, and his later concerts attracted three generations of fans.

In the 1960s, Arnold began performing with symphony orchestras in virtually every major city: New Yorkers jammed Carnegie Hall for two concerts, he appeared in Hollywood at the Coconut Grove, and had long, sold-out engagements in Las Vegas and Lake Tahoe. In the 1970s, while at MGM Records, Arnold posted several Top 40 hits, including 1974's Top 20 hit, "I Wish That I Had Loved You Better." A member of the Grand Ole Opry and the Country Music Hall of Fame, Eddy Arnold ranked 22nd on County Music Television's 2003 list of The 40 Greatest Men of Country Music.
