For more than forty years, Riders In The Sky have led the way in Western music, a genre pioneered by Gene Autry and Roy Rogers. Known for legendary wacky humor and way-out Western wit, the band has continued to take their music to new audiences. In 1982, Riders In The Sky became the first, and to date only, exclusively Western music artist to join the Grand Ole Opry, the longest running radio show in history, and thus began a love affair with radio. In 1988, they recorded comedy skits for the album Riders Radio Theatre and launched the long-running international weekly radio show of the same name on public radio.
In 2001, Riders In The Sky garnered their first Grammy for “Best Musical Album for Children” with the immense success of Woody’s Round Up from the Toy Story movie franchise. A few years later, they earned another Grammy in the same category for Monsters Inc. – Scream Factory Favorites, the companion album to Pixar’s Monsters Inc.
