This Week in Texas Music History: Tito Guizar
Tito Guizar was born April 8, 1908, in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico. In 1929, he moved to the United States, where he worked in radio, on stage, and eventually on television.
Beginning in the 1930s, Guizar appeared in dozens of English and Spanish-language western movies as a singing cowboy. He acted alongside such popular stars as Roy Rogers, and several of Guizar’s songs are now classics.
Tito Guizar lived and performed throughout the United States, but he eventually settled in San Antonio, where he died in 1999 at the age of 91.
