The Curio Cowboys – Room in Your Heart 2019
The Curio Cowboys are pleased to present another chapter of The Western Swing Songbook, featuring the songs of the great Wiley & Gene. Fiddle man Wiley Walker and guitarist Gene Sullivan were veterans of the early Western Swing bands before they formed their own creative partnership in 1939.
Wiley & Gene wrote an amazing stream of songs, cut influential records for Columbia, and performed as a popular regional radio act. Operating out of Oklahoma City, Wiley & Gene were instrumentalists and vocalists influential beyond measure, shaping the sound of professional musicians and delighting Roosevelt era listeners via juke box play. Many Wiley & Gene songs became part of the fabric of American music and their contribution to The Western Swing Songbook is invaluable.
