I was wondering about the song "That Silver Haired Daddy of Mine." Most places it says co-written by Gene Autry but I think it was only written by Jimmy Long.
Does anyone know any details?
I believe Autry's was the third recording of the song (after Long and Robertson) and it was made with Long. It was recorded in Oct. 1931 but when was it released?
According to one source it sold 30,000 units after its release in 1931. Is this true? When was the song a hit for Autry?
Was this the first gold record?
