Walter Scott's Personality Parade article in the Sunday, July 21, 2002 issue slights Eddy Arnold.
Patricia D., Spokane, Wash. writes:
You called George Jones "the greatest living country singer."
Who would you pick as the 10 best country singers of all time?
Answer by Walter Scott:
There's an embarrassment of riches, which makes it hard to pick just 10 singers. But here goes:
Garth Brooks, 40
Merle Haggard, 65
George Jones, 70
Loretta Lynn, 67
Reba McEntire, 47
Willie Nelson, 69
along with the late Patsy Cline, Waylon Jennings, Hank Williams and Tammy Wynette.
Once again, Eddy Arnold fans, the greatest singer and performer who has done more for Country music than any other artist has been slighted.
You can't help but feel sorry for people who have not been exposed
to Eddy's beautiful voice over the years.
It's their loss, not ours.
