Classic Rewind: Cal Smith – ‘I’ve Loved You All Over The World’

RIP Cal Smith, who died recently.

To catch up on his career, reread Paul Dennis’s Country Heritage overview from earlier this year.

    Is that eye-black (like in the NFL) or just bags under his eyes?

      A very talented performer with a distinctive voice. Extremely nice guy too. Had the chance to talk with Cal several times. He told great stories about being on the road with Ernest Tubb’s Texas Troubadours.

      Obviously Cal was not wearing enough stage makeup for this TV appearance and the bright lighting didn’t help. TV cameras from that era required excessive lighting for color. Sad that’s the only comment you could make about this great country singer who just passed away.
