Jimmy Wakley was born in Mineola, Arkansas in 1914. JW was raised in Oklahoma where he learned to sing and play music. A trio was formed and a happenstance meeting with Gene Autry inspired him to move to Hollywood. He appeared in several movies from 1940-1945 to perform western syle songs. JW starred in 28 b-western movies from 1944-1949. The most popular was ACROSS THE RIO GRANDE where Polly Bergman made her debut in a duet with JW. He was a prolific singer/songwriter with many recordings and several major hits. Jimmy Wakely died in Mission Hills, Ca on Sept 23, 1982.
