Comedy and Western favorites Riders In The Sky return to The Grand with a salute to country legend Roy Rogers. Join Ranger Doug, Too Slim, Woody Paul, and Joey the Cowpolka King, as they present an evening of toe-tappin' fun! For more than thirty years Riders In The Sky have been keepers of the flame of Western music passed on by the Sons of the Pioneers, Gene Autry, and Roy Rogers.  And while remaining true to the integrity of Western music, they have themselves become modern-day icons by reviving, revitalizing, and branding the genre with their own legendary wacky humor and way-out Western wit, all along encouraging buckaroos and buckarettes to live life The Cowboy Way!
