As one of country music’s most progressive crossover artists, Eddie Rabbitt epitomized the changes transforming the genre in the mid-1970s, helping usher it out of the backwoods and barrooms and into suburban subdivisions and malls. Rhino celebrates the innovative country artist with a collection featuring 17 of his #1 country hits. NUMBER ONE HITS will be available May 12 from Rhino Records at all retail outlets, including www.rhino.com, for a suggested list price of $18.98 (CD) and $9.99 (digital).
Arranged chronologically from 1976 to 1990, the disc encompasses Rabbitt’s prolific career, which included a remarkable 33 straight Top 10 hits. Rabbitt continued to record and tour through the ’90s, but died in 1998 at the age of 56 after battling lung cancer.
