Footprints In The Snow – Jack Guthrie

Photo: Jack Guthrie Oklahoma-born Jack Guthrie first came to prominence when he moved to California in 1937 to join his cousin Woody Guthrie on the Oke & Woody Show on KFVD radio in Hollywood.

Influenced by Jimmie Rodgers and adapted to fit his cowboy image, Jack signed to Capitol Records shortly there-after, and he scored his first big hit in 1945 while stationed in the Pacific Theater. After his Army stint, Jack continued to record for Capitol and tour the West Coast until 1947, when he was admitted to a hospital with tuberculosis. He died in 1948 in Livermore, California.

This rare Christmas track is not currently available commercially as far as I know.
