Gene Autry – ‘Frosty The Snowman’ (1950)

He had the Midas touch. Star of 94 films, multi- millionaire, 36-year baseball-team owner, member of the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame, record-label owner. Singing cowboy Gene Autry put out several Xmas records.

He wrote his 1947 US#9 hit Here Comes Santa Claus. His 1949 ‘Rudolph’ was a US#1 hit; this one was a US#4 in 1950. He’s a lot easier to listen to over-and-over than The Chipmunks!
