Gene Autry was known as "The Singing Cowboy" and that was long before he was singing all the way to the bank. It was Ray Whitley’s tune, "Back In The Saddle Again," that became Autry’s theme song and the title of his 1976 autobiography. Autry’s wide appeal was due to his acting and singing talent, his gentle nature and his generosity. Autry was married to Ina Mae Spivey from 1932 until her death in 1980. The next year he married Jacqueline Ellam, a bank vice president. He had no children from either marriage. During World War II, the already successful and wealthy Autry enlisted in the Army Air Force ferrying cargo from the Far East
Orvon Gene Autry (September 29, 1907 – October 2, 1998) was an American performer who gained fame as The Singing Cowboy. Born in Tioga, Texas, Autry was raised in Texas and Oklahoma. Discovered by humorist Will Rogers, in 1929 Autry was billed as "Oklahoma's Yodeling Cowboy" at KVOO in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Autry passed long hours working the graveyard shift at the small telegraph office by singing and playing guitar. He strummed familiar cowboy tunes and worked at emulating the sounds of his musical hero, Jimmie Rodgers. He returned home the owner of the Los Angeles Angels, which became the first American League franchise on the West Coast. Autry and his second wife Jackie opened the Autry Museum of Western Heritage in 1988. The Essential Gene Autry (contains The Yellow Rose of Texas and Back in the Saddle Again ), Columbia, 1992.
