Riders In The Sky

America's favorite cowboys, Riders in the Sky, will be performing several times during this year's National Cowboy Poetry Gathering. They share some songs and insights into the mystique of the cowboy. And they might have a few tips for aspiring yodelers. Three-quarters of the band joined us from Nashville to talk about how the band came together, and the relationship between Riders in the Sky and the National Cowboy Poetry Gathering.

Support comes from
