Chanteur Country US né le 7 Février 1909 à Batesville (Tennessee). Texas Jim Robertson a fait une petite carrière dans le show business, enregistrant dans les années 30 et 40 une oeuvre inégale mais qui comporte de très beaux moments. Il a passé les années de guerre à se produire pour les troupes américaines sur les deux frontset a composé plusieurs pièces antinazis à la naïveté et à l'humour irrésistible comme ce "Last Page Of Mein Kampf". Texas Jim Robertson est décédé le 11 Novembre 1966.

Texas Jim Robertson was a native of Texas as his name might suggest. He started off singing when his aunt invited him out to Charlotte, NC for a visit when he was about sixteen years old. While there, he got a job singing the old western songs. It wasn't too long before his fame spread and he was offered a stint with the NBC network.
While he was in New York, he was not only singing, but also taking on drama roles on the radio. RCA Victor signed him to a recording contract.
In 1937, Marianne Holliday became Jim's wife. Around the beginning of World War II, they became the parents to a little girl, Lucy Holliday Robertson.
The World's Fair in 1939 saw Texas Jim as a popular act with the Ford Exhibit.
Initially, Texas Jim was turned away by the Army to serve because he was rather thin for his height. But undismayed, he later was accepted by the U.S. Marines. While with them, he also entertained the troops while still going through his boot camp regimen. His war service included serving in the Pacific Theatre and he ended up in Omura, Japan, which was less than 25 miles from Nagasaki, where the second atom bomb landed. While at Omura, he was named Chief Announcer and entertainer for the Kyushu Network. He was honorably discharged in August 1946 and promptly headed home to Nyack, New York.
In addition to the recordings listed, his RCA Victor releases also included such songs as: "I Heard The Angels Weep", "I'm So Low", "Slipping Around", "Wedding Bells", "I Don't Want No More Of Army Life", "If You've Got The Money, I've Got The Time".
