In his long spell on the country music stage Jimmie Davis has played many parts, singing everything from low-down blue yodels to gospel hymns. This boxed sets document the most creative, productive and fascinating period of his work.
'You Are My Sunshine' (1937-1946), finds him rivalling Gene Autry as a singer of Western-styled country music. This was the Jimmie Davis who took songs like You Are My Sunshine on the campaign trail and became the first country-singing Governor in American political and musical history.
This set includes extensive books with notes by Tony Russell, and rare pictures.
