In August that year, the Ramblers were invited to record songs for a label in Camden, New Jersey. After arguing about how the band would be billed on the record, Jimmie simply stated that he would record songs himself. He recorded “Sleep, Baby, Sleep” and “The Soldier’s Sweetheart.” They were released in October to modest reception, but his next recordings, performed in November for the same label, officially put Jimmie on the map. In particular, his song T for Texas”, which was released as “Blue Yodel”, sold almost half a million copies. In the coming years Rogers continued to perform and his popularity increased. However, his illness would eventually catch up to him. He died on May 26, 1933.
