The legendary Eddy Arnold passed away Thursday May 8th 2008 at the age of 89-just days before his 90th birthday. He was a country music icon who was very popular beginning in the late 1930s on radio then the 1940s while working as a vocalist with Pee Wee King's band. He would later become one of the architects of the 'Nashville Sound' and 'Countrypolitan' sound which expanded the popularity of country music beyond rural America. He would go on to sell well over 80 million records.
