Reeves' international popularity during the 1960s, however, at times surpassed his popularity in the United States, helping to give country music a worldwide market for the first time.

Miller’s early brushes with the law did not keep him from wearing a badge in Pecos. In 1891 he even served as one of Reeves County Sheriff George A. “Bud” Frazer’s deputies, that is until Frazer fired him for misconduct and the suspected murder of a Mexican prisoner who knew of Miller’s shady activities. Miller conspired to kill Frazer, but the plot was foiled. In 1894 Miller and Frazer engaged in two separate shootouts. Miller was wounded on both occasions, but there is little evidence to support the legend he survived those clashes only because he wore a metal breastplate under his clothes. On September 14, 1896, ex-deputy Miller and ex-sheriff Frazer met again at a saloon in Toyah, near Pecos. Without so much as a howdy-do Miller leveled his shotgun at Frazer and emptied two loads of buckshot into his enemy’s head. Indicted for murder, Miller stood trial (after a change of venue) and was acquitted.
