TWO COUNTRY STARS SHINE BRIGHTLY on cable this week. On TNN's Ralph Emery on the Record with Dolly (Wed., Oct. 19, 8 p.m. ET), the pride of Pigeon Forge, Tenn., sits down for a chat with the Nashville talkmeister and in the process pulls off a PR hat trick: She plugs her autobiography, her first children's book and her new album. Then Johnny Cash narrates Gene Autry: Melody of the West (AMC, Sun., Oct. 23, 1:30 p.m. ET), a colorful tribute to the Singing Cowboy and matinee idol of the pre-World War II era. The footage from Autry's first serial, Phantom Empire, still looks pretty cool 60 years later.
