Tribute to Jimmie Rogers

A couple of months ago I was struck down with pneumonia and spent a few weeks recovering. During that time I thought about a hero of mine, the singing brakeman Jimmie Rogers. Jimmie of course died from TB before antibiotics were available. I always admired his courage and how he recorded up till the end. He was on my mind a lot. So I've now recorded a little video of one of his songs T for Texas as a sort of tribute to him and a "thank you" for modern medicine! I can't sing at all like Jimmie could but it still brings me pleasure to play these old songs. I hope he would have approved.[less]
