Walter Brennan, 1894-1974, is primarily remembered as a television character actor. If you are a little older you may remember him as a three time Oscar winner in the Best Supporting Actor category. He also had an unlikely recording career as his first chart single came at the age of 66. He ultimately had four singles make the BILLBOARD MAGAZINE Pop Singles Chart.
Just about everybody, it seems, released a version of “White Christmas.” Brennan’s recordings were always folksy in style and sometimes more spoken than sung. He released his “White Christmas in the early 1960s and it did not chart. Still, not bad for an older guy.
