    I'm not really a country music fan, but Cattle Call was my favorite song when I was 3. RIP, Eddy.

    My parents used to listen to his records all the time. My dad thought he could sing like him. I can hear him -- my (late) dad singing "Anytime" in my head right now.
    I thought Eddy had passed away years ago.

    Definitely a second-tier guy in the country music pantheon, but nevertheless one who will be missed. For better or worse, his pop-influenced style was a forerunner to the "countrypolitan" sound of the 70s. RIP.
