    Autry's last recording session for Columbia was in June of 1956. He formed his own record label that he wanted to name Champion, but that name was already taken, so he settled on Challenge. One of the first tunes he recorded was co-written with Johnny Bond and is our gospel tune today, There's No Back Door To Heaven. THE WESTERNER https://thewesterner.blogspot.com/
