America's Favorite Singing Cowboy, Gene Autry was already a popular radio star and movie icon when he recorded Here Comes Santa Claus (Right Down Santa Claus Lane) in 1947, a song which he co-wrote with Oakley Haldeman. The record launched Gene into yet another field of stardom, that of the role of the Christmas Cowboy. Half a century later, Gene is probably best known for his Christmas recordings of Here Comes Santa Claus and Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer.
