"WHERE HAVE ALL THE UK JIM REEVES FANS GONE??"
On this website we have mentioned the Dutch TOP 2000 CHARTS OF 2013, and the fact that Jim Reeves did not make it into the poll, and this one shows the UK is no different with no one willing to support Jim's music on the airwaves. It is quite an embarrassment to see some of the names appearing in the "UKCOUNTRYRADIO.COM TOP 30 ALL TIME GREATEST COUNTRY SONGS", when one considers Reeves has to be up there as one of country music's most successful performers (via record sales) in the UK, JIM REEVES DID NOT MAKE IT INTO THE TOP 30, UNBELIEVABLE!!!.
For many months UKCountryRadio.com talked about a poll for the Greatest Country Hits of all time. The station claims: "Playing the Hottest Country Music for the UK, 24 hours a day” and stated they were the "Most listened to country station across the UK ".

The greatest country song of all time of this poll is "He Stopped Loving Her Today" by George Jones (1980).
