Jimmy Wakely - 1969




Jimmy Wakely was one of the last singing cowboys.  Singer, film star, songwriter and record company owner.  In films he was in Roy Rogers and Gene Autry films.  Working with Gene Autry eventually led to long-term performances on Melody Ranch.  In later years Jimmy performed on the Grand Old Opry and did a tour for the troops with Bob Hope.  We lost Jimmy to emphysema in 1982
