Gene Autry, America's Singing Cowboy, is an all American icon of immense influence in pop culture.
As a most popular recording and movie star on the silver screens for the years between the mid 30's to mid 50's, he set the cast on what a "singin', ridin' , and bad guy punchin' good guy western hero should be!

Tim began performing as "Gene" back in 1990's by request for a lady's 90th birthday party arranged by the famous 'Tavern On The Green" in Central Park, NYC.
It was such a hit with her and her huge gathering of family and guests that Tim decided to add more true dimension to his "Gene Autry" performances, improving with practice over and over, the grand songs, vocal impressions and overall knowledge of Gene and his remarkable entertainer career. Gene Autry was a grand American legend and first magnitude "superstar" as the term is used today.
