Mavericks Malo Pays Tribute To Late Hero

THE MAVERICKS frontman RAUL MALO has paid tribute to late country icon EDDY ARNOLD with a touching appreciation of the singer/songwriter in the Los Angeles Times newspaper.
The There Goes My Heart singer's letter to the Times credits Arnold with writing "some of the most beautiful music ever".
In the appreciation, which appears in Tuesday's (20May08) Times, Malo writes, "There were no rhinestone suits, no affairs with movie stars, no drug problems, no nothing... just great music.
"Early in my career, I had the pleasure (or audacity, really) of singing (Arnold hit) Make The World Go Away for a television show.
"Several months after that, I had the good fortune of meeting Arnold. He leaned into me to tell me how much he enjoyed my version of his song.
"I bragged about that for months. Apparently I haven't stopped."
Arnold died on 8 May (08). He was 89.
