Biography

Smokey Rogers, for his a long time playing within the California’s American swing scene, is most beneficial known for penning the common ballad “Gone.” The tune proceeded to go nowhere when Ferlin Husky first documented it in 1952, however when Husky re-recorded Eliminated in 1956, it proceeded to go straight to the very best of the united states graphs, where it remained for eight weeks and also crossed to the pop graphs. Rogers also co-wrote “Spanish Fandango” with American swing ruler Bob Wills, that was released in 1947. In 1949, Rogers acquired a modest strike with “JUST A LITTLE Bird EXPLAINED.” From 1949, Rogers made an appearance in a few of Universal’s pre-music video “musical featurettes” alongside Tex Williams. Rogers proved helpful for a long time with Williams, as he also do with Spade Cooley. By no means camera timid, Rogers hosted his personal Television show in NORTH PARK in the 1950s.
