DID YOU KNOW?

In addition to The Gene Autry Show which was on television from 1950 to 1956, Gene Autry had a very busy career. He appeared in 93 movies and sold more than 100 million records! His major hits like "The Yellow Rose of Texas", "Tumbling Tumbleweeds", and "Back in the Saddle Again" dominated the airwaves!

There is also a small town in Oklahoma named after him because he owned a ranch nearby! Gene Autry, Oklahoma is home to the Gene Autry Oklahoma Museum and every year in September they have a film and music festival where they show lots of vintage Westerns and cowboy poets and storytellers entertain with lots of good old-fashioned campfire music and tales.
