Jimmie Rodgers

I'm going to tell you about my famous alabamian Jimmie Rodgers.

Jimmie's first release was "Sleep, Baby, Sleep", paired with "The Soldier's Sweetheart". His career reached its highest point during the years 1928 to 1932. He was six or seven years old when his mother died but he died at the age of 35.

His birthday is September 8, 1897. His children's names are Anita Rodgers, June Rodgers, Logan Rodgers, Katrine Rodgers, and Michael Rodgers. He died May 26, 1933. He was born in Meridian, Mississippi but his birthplace was listed as Geiger, Alabama. He died in New York City, New York.

Jimmie's real name is James Charles Rodgers. He was an american country singer in the 20th century, known most widely for his rhythmic yodeling. He was the first performer inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame. At 13 he won an amateur talent contest and ran away with a traveling medicine show.

Some of his songs are English Country Garden, Any Old Time, Secretly, Honeycomb, Waiting for a Train, Jimmie the Kid, Mule Skinner Blues, Frankie and Jonny, The Singing Brakeman, and T for Texas.

That's my famous alabamian.
