Personal Quote:

[in a 1964 interview] When I was five years old I heard my first phonograph recording. I was in the pasture, with a pet pig of mine, and was startled by the sound of music coming from the house. When I got there, there was this little suitcase-looking concern on the porch, with a crank, and music was coming from it. I couldn't understand how all those people could fit inside that little suitcase. See more »

Trivia:

According to Billboard Magazine, Jim had eleven #1 hits on the Country charts - five while he was alive ("Mexican Joe", "Bimbo", "Four Walls", "Billy Bayou", and "He'll Have To Go"), and six after he died ("I Guess I'm Crazy", "Is It Really Over", "This Is It", "Distant Drums", "Blue Side Of Lonesome", and "I Won't Come In While He's There"). Jim's last #1 song, "I Won't Come In While He's There"... See more »
