Townsend Center: Main Stage Theatre
Carrollton, Georgia
Friday, 6 May 2016 - 7:30 PM
Springtime has arrived here on the Range. The ponies are saddled and ready to head out for the Townsend Center at UWG. We have a wonderful show for you on Friday, May 6th at 7:30 PM. We will perform our tribute to Roy Rogers: King of the Cowboys.

Join us in this thrilling ride to yesteryear as we salute iconic western movie, music and TV Star Roy Rogers. Our show is a multi-media romp featuring family-friendly favorites from Roy’s long career: Don’t Fence Me In, Pecos Bill and Happy Trails. All of these songs and more are presented in our two-time Grammy winning high yodeling style.

Our show will include film clips of Roy’s greatest moments with Dale Evans, Trigger and the Sons of the Pioneers. There is also a film montage tribute to “The Greatest Sidekick of ‘Em All: Gabby Hayes!” Ranger Doug will provide some fun facts about Roy’s life, from his humble beginnings as Leonard Slye to one of Hollywood’s most beloved stars.

History will most certainly link Riders In The Sky to the loveable cowboy Woody, as Riders performed Woody's Round Up in Toy Story 2. The album of the same name garnered our first Grammy Award in 2001 for Best Musical Album for Children. Two years later, we roped our second Grammy in the same category, for Monsters Inc. - Scream Factory Favorites.
