Gene Autry – At Mail Call Today, is a song written by American country music artist Gene Autry and Fred Rose. The two had a successful song writing partnership dating back to 1941, including “Be Honest With Me”, “Tweedle-O-Twill” and “Tears On My Pillow”. Rose, with Roy Acuff, founded Acuff-Rose Music Publishing in 1942, and in 1947, would go on to producing Hank Williams. Autry, after a brief lull in film making due to WWII, would be back to his pre-war output by 1946.
The song, recorded in December 1944, was Gene Autry’s most successful song on the Juke Box Folk charts, peaking at number one for eight weeks with a total of twenty-two weeks on the charts. The B-side of “At Mail Call Today”, a song entitled, “I’ll Be Back” peaked at number seven on the same chart.
