Riders the Christmas Way

Hear the Christmas Yodel resounding! It's a great big western ho-ho-ho from "America's Favorite Cowboys" Riders In The Sky! Those wacky, four-part harmonizing cowboys have spruced up the bunkhouse, donned their sequined yuletide outfits, and loosed their vivid imaginations to create a holiday musical fantasy for Saddle Pals of all ages. Christmas The Cowboy Way will feature their unique "brand" of cowboy humor sprinkled with a dash of holiday spice which includes original songs like "Riding Home On Christmas Eve," "Deck The Bunkhouse Walls," and "The Last Christmas Medley You'll Ever Need To Hear." You will also be invited to join Riders in singing traditional holiday classics such as "I'll Be Home For Christmas", "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" and others. And all this yuletide charm is augmented with the classic, western favorites Riders have been singing for 30 years. So put on your merry cheer and saddle up and ride! You're invited to spend a holiday evening Christmas The Cowboy Way!

That Riders In The Sky was even formed is a feat of improbable likelihood. What are the odds that a theoretical plasma physicist, a wildlife manager - galvanizer - Life Scout, an English major - shot putter - Bluegrass Boy, and a Polka Hall of Fame member would collectively become "America's Favorite Cowboys?" And even more unlikely is that 30-plus years later, the original members are still "bringing good beef to hungry people" while putting up Ripken-like numbers! The Rolling Stones only made it a few years before replacing Brian Jones; the Sons of the Pioneers constantly changed personnel; even the Ringo-era Beatles only lasted 8 years. But the key to keeping the same founding members intact for three decades on the road is more easily explained: "Separate hotel rooms," cracks Ranger Doug!
