The Official Website of Gene Autry, America's Favorite Singing Cowboy

Fun Autry Fact:

According to a 1948 Life magazine article, "if [Gene's records] were all shipped to one place, [they] would make up a freight train solid with Western songs and be more than a mile long."

Love Songs

Released: 02/09/1999
Label: Varèse Sarabande Records

As Jackie Autry notes in the booklet for Love Songs, Gene was a romantic. Many of the songs from his feature films were love songs and this collection features 18 of the best. "You're The Only Star In My Blue Heaven," "You Belong To My Heart," "The One Rose," "I'll Wait For You" and other tunes are all digitally re-mastered from Gene's personal film archives and the original acetate recordings for the films.

The CD's eight-page booklet features an introduction by Jackie Autry plus rare movie stills. A truly tender collection of romantic recordings.
