  • Eddie Dean (July 9, 1907 – March 4, 1999) was an American western singer and actor whom Roy Rogers and Gene Autry termed the best cowboy singer of all time. Dean was best known for "I Dreamed Of A Hill-Billy Heaven" (1955), which became an even greater hit for Tex Ritter in 1961. Dean was born Edgar Dean Glosup in the rural community of Posey in Hopkins County, Texas, northwest of Sulphur Springs. His father was a teacher, who encouraged Dean to launch a professional singing career. At the age of sixteen, Dean performed on the Southern gospel circuit with the Vaughan and then the V.O. Stamps quartets. Dean and his brother, Jimmie Dean (not to be confused with Jimmy Dean, the country entertainer originally from Plainview, Texas) moved to Chicago and performed together on WLS Radio's National Barn Dance. They also did work from a radio station in Yankton, South Dakota. In 1934, Dean appeared in his first film in the role of Sam in Manhattan Love Song. In 1937, Dean relocated to Hollywood, California; many of Dean's early roles were uncredited. Producers Releasing Corporation (PRC), a low-budget movie studio, had been making more ambitious pictures in 1944 and 1945, and introduced a new novelty: hour-long westerns in color. This was the first time a regular series of features was photographed in color, and Eddie Dean was chosen as the star of the series. The films were an immediate success, launching Dean as a popular western star and showcasing his pleasant baritone singing voice. His comic sidekick was usually Mississippi native Roscoe Ates in the role of Soapy Jones. Dean's later films, in 1947 and 1948, were conventional black-and-white westerns. (en)
