Riders in the Sky

Riders in the Sky is a delightful Grammy Award winning western music group that has been performing together since 1977.

Though their style appeals to kids, they are equally popular with their parents and are known for their gentle western-themed humor and expert musicianship.

Their music is comprised of authentic old cowboy and Western songs, and they lace their shows with bits of comedy to sweeten the mix. They had a Saturday morning TV show in the early 1990's and have provided songs for major motion pictures such as Pixar's Toy Story 2 (Woody's Roundup.)

They also have a radio show, Rider's Radio Theater.

Riders in the Sky is certainly a lot of fun to listen to, even if you don't consider yourself a fan of Western music (which is different from what most people perceive as Country music) and here is a fine sample for you; it's the aforementioned Woody's Roundup from Toy Story 2!
