A Boy from Oklahoma is in need of Legal Help!

Brad Piccolo of the Red Dirt Rangers asked me to help spread the word. Gene Collier, the guy who wrote “The Boys from Oklahoma” needs help clearing his name.Gene Collier is the man who wrote “Boys From Oklahoma”,the most well-known Red Dirt song of all.He’s always there to lend a hand. Now he needs your help.

Gene has been terminated from his 35-plus year job, accused of theft of railroad property. Gene has plead Not-guilty and has obtained legal representation. Lawyers ain’t cheap, and he has no job. The small amount of savings he had on hand (making bail, lawyer’s fee, etc.) is quickly draining out. He still has a house payment, groceries, fuel, and the basics that we all have. Of course he has the full support of his family, but we need to let his friends know that he has a need and what could be done to help. Gene’s phone # is in the book in Cushing, Okla. If nothing else, give him a call and let him know that you’re in his corner.
If you wish to help,a fund has been set up in his name. Make contributions to:

R. Gene Collier Legal Defense Fund

Spirit Bank
P.O. Box 1177
Drumright, OK, 74030
