Cowboy Church of the Air

May 13, 1953



Stuart Hamblen was the son of a Methodist Preacher and began his career as a gospel singer. In 1926, he began his career as a radio performer and was a member of the orginal Beverly Hillbillies. After seeing Billy Graham in 1949, Stuart Hamblen devoted his life to Christ and changed the tone of his career. He began his radio show "The Cowboy Church in the Air" and it was syndicated across the country.

Unfortunately, "The Cowboy Church in the Air" was canceled when Stuart Hamblen, true to his beliefs, refused to allow alcohol companies to be sponsors of his show. In 1952, he ran for President of the United States under the Prohibition Party and came in 4th place to Dwight Eisenhower.
