Some call it cowboy music and some call it folk music and some call it the Best in Western Music. The bottom line is this: Riders In The Sky deliver pure and priceless entertainment. The moment America's Favorite Cowboys step up to the microphone the magic begins, allowing the audience to leave behind the frenzied daily pace and lose themselves in the roinaiitic, comical and whimsical world of the singing cowboy.
Riders In The Sky have been bringing their own special brand of western entertainment to fans around the world for over 20 years. They have performed over 4,000 shows, 200 national TV appearances, 200 public radio show, 2.3 million miles on the road and three television series. They have recorded more than 20 albums. They've also starred in their own Saturday morning TV series for CBS, hosted Tumbleweed Theater for four years on The Nashville Network, appeared multiple times on Austin City Limits and they are performing members of the Grand Ole Opry.
In 1999, Riders brought the singing cowboy back to the big screen in a new way as they provided music for Toy Story 2 with their rendition of Woody's Roundup. They then recorded a companion album for the movie: Woody's Roundup featuring Riders In The Sky. The album landed Riders in The Sky a Grammy Award for Best Children's Album in 2002.
