You can’t fence him in! Roy Rogers is the true king of the cowboys. When he comes on the radio it’s happy trails for sure! It has to be Roy Rogers.
Be honest with me, everyone knows Gene Autry is the original singing cowboy. When he comes on the radio he is my sunshine. I choose Gene Autry
Gene Autry made 640 recordings with almost half of these written (or co-written) by him. He also starred in nearly 100 movies. Roy Rogers recorded fewer songs, around 400, but appeared in more than 100 movies. Roy has an impressive 3 stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame but Gene has an amazing 5! Gene has been elected to the Country Music Hall of Fame but Roy has been elected twice!
