With records charting from the 1950s to the 1980s, he became well known as a practitioner of the Nashville sound (a mixture of older country-style music with elements of popular music). Known as "Gentleman Jim", his songs continued to chart for years after his death. Reeves died at age 40 in the crash of a private airplane.

Today I burned your old love letters.
Burned them gently one by one
Before I'd light the flame I'd read it
To try and find the wrong I've done

The first you wrote me was the sweetest
The last one broke my heart in two
Our love is there among the embers
Of the ashes of your letters tied in blue

Today I burned your old love letters
I watched our love go up in smoke 
I lived again those precious mem'ries 
I heard each tender word you spoke

The first you wrote me was the sweetest
The last one said that we were through
Our love is there among the embers
Of the ashes of your letters tied in blue.
