Dear Australian Fans,
Neva and I would like to thank the people of Australia who attended the concerts during our recent tour. Thanks for being so warm and responsive to us. We found Australia to be a beautiful place and not so unlike America in so many ways. Australian people take time to visit like we do here in Texas-and to get together for a "barbie" for food and fun. The tour involved 24 shows, all the way from Melbourne to Bundaberg. A lot of travel, but getting to meet so many great Jim Reeves fans was worth the effort. We had a number of full houses. And the standing ovations at some of the shows were quite flattering. We did return home very tired, but full of good memories. We were back only a few days and I had to host the 4th Annual Jim Reeves Jamboree. It was a great success that included a wonderful day of country music and various festivities. I plan to take some time off now and enjoy my country place in the pine trees of east Texas. I am sure while I am driving my tractor and doing other chores I will reflect on some very fond memories of my first tour of Australia. We look forward to staying in touch with our new found friends via email, etc. A special thanks to Ranjit for providing this wonderful opportunity to visit Oz land. We hope to come back soon.
Best Wishes,
John Rex and Neva
