  1. You can't go wrong with Eddy Arnold.
    You put a lump in my throat with this one, Ron. Arnold was a favorite of my folks so I've been listening to "Cattle Call" and others all my life.
    He didn't need pyro or whirling lights or to soar across the stage on a wire --- he could simply stand and sing as strong and pure as anyone who ever gave voice to a melody ... The duet with Leann Rimes that follows the original clip you have featured is absolutely lovely. Thanks for the memories.
