Join Riders In The Sky in a thrilling ride to yesteryear as they salute iconic western movie, music and TV star Roy Rogers, undisputed “King of the Cowboys.”

“King of the Cowboys - Riders In The Sky Salute Roy Rogers” is a 90 minute multi-media romp featuring audience-friendly favorites from Roy’s long career that include “Don’t Fence Me In,” “Pecos Bill,” “Happy Trails” and more, all appearing on the Riders’ latest album saluting Roy Rogers, and wrapped up in Riders’ two-time Grammy-winning high yodeling style.

Film clips of Roy’s greatest moments on screen with Trigger, Dale Evans and the Sons of the Pioneers are featured, as well as a film montage tribute to “The Greatest Sidekick of ‘Em All: Gabby Hayes!”

Ranger Doug, preeminent singing cowboy historian, provides some biographical fun facts about Roy’s life, from his humble beginnings as Leonard Slye from Duck Run, OH, to one of Hollywood’s most beloved stars, and his influence on a generation of musicians and western entertainers.

“Roy was my idol, plain and simple,” says Rider Too Slim. “This show will trigger (sorry about that) a lot of memories for folks our age, and introduce new genera- tions to a wonderful man and artist who deserves to be celebrated. See you there, saddlepals!”
