I love Gene Autry. “The Singing Cowboy”–I sometimes think how the world would be different if America had chosen to embrace Autry instead of John Wayne. If a seranading, happy, snappy-dressed Autry could have been the standard of manhood instead of the taciturn grunting John Wayne, the world would be so much more beautiful.
Well, Autry made the hit “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer”, so of course he would have a Christmas album. He had his hand in two other top christmas songs: “Frosty the Snowman” and “Here comes Santa Claus”, taking three spots on the top 20 most played Christmas songs.
This is a great album from a great artist. Merry Christmas everyone!
