Since their first gig at a Nashville bar in 1977, Riders In The Sky have been showcasing hilarious comedy and truly impressive songwriting: the song “The Legend of Palindrome,” for example, is made up entirely of lines that read the same forwards and backwards. Their newest release, America’s Favorite Cowboy Songs, features their most requested ditties and is exclusively available at Cracker Barrel Old Country Stores.
The group consists of lead singer Ranger Doug, fiddle player Woody Paul, bassist and guitarist Too Slim, and “Cowpolka King” accordion player Joey Miskulin.
The group’s collaborations with Pixar have kept their music just as relevant as ever in the 21st century: they penned the score for the Academy Award-winning short film For the Birds and contributed songs to the universally acclaimed hits Toy Story 2 and Monsters, Inc.
In addition to their two GRAMMY Awards, the group has been the Western Music Association’s Entertainers of the Year six times.
“It is refreshing to hear guys sing about the great outdoors, in a moderate volume, in nice harmony, and who play their instruments well and have a sense of camaraderie.”—Ranger Doug
