We remember him as the owner of the Anaheim Angels Major League Baseball Team, his 93 films, 91 episodes of, “The Gene Autry Show”, and the 300 or so songs he wrote, or co-wrote. He sold more than 100 million records.
He placed country music in the main-stream, and led the country sound to international popularity.
His biggest recordings have become Christmas Classics.
