One of the first female country stars, Rosalie  Allen  recorded several hits during the late '40s as a singing cowgirl and yodeler in the Patsy Montana tradition, Inspired by the singing cowboys of the '30s, she taught herself to sing and play guitar, and began working on the radio in Wilkes-Barre, PA. She moved to New York in the early '40s, and sang with the Swing Billies and also with Zeke Manners  where she met , Elton Britt who had WW II Hit "There's a Star Spangled Banner Waving Somewhere," 

 Elton Britt     R. Allen's  final two chart hits partnered  with Elton Britt  the yodeler famous for  his   Jimmie Rodgers style - in the mid-'40s for "There's a Star-Spangled Banner Waving Somewhere." Their first single, "Beyond the Sunset," hit number 7 in 1950; it was followed closely by the number3 "Quicksilver."
