Sing County Star Eddy Arnold His Lulla-bye

Scoring Update! The points change, death remains the same...

A biographer for country music superstar Eddy Arnold says the singer has died at the age of 89. Belmont University Professor Don Cusic says Arnold died at a care facility near Nashville Thursday morning. Arnold was just days short of his 90th birthday.

Arnold's mellow baritone on songs like "Make the World Go Away" — a crossover hit on the pop charts in 1965 — made him one of the most successful country singers in history. He became a pioneer of "The Nashville Sound," also called "countrypolitan," a mixture of country and pop styles.
Congratulations and 24 points awarded to M"h By You Buddy. The Rosters and Standings have been updated.
