Ranger Doug talks about the group’s legacy
Riders in the Sky is celebrating its 45th anniversary in 2022. The four members — Doug “Ranger Doug” Green, Fred “Too Slim” Labour, Paul “Woody Paul” Chrisman and Joey “The Cowpolka King” Miskulin — are keeping country music fans laughing with their mix of quick-witted humor, musicianship and vocal abilities.
The group regularly tours while appearing frequently on the Opry stage, representing the “western” part of the “country & western” genre. The group has held an Opry membership since 1982 and earned numerous awards along the way.
Ranger Doug is our guest this week, where he talks about the group’s legacy as well as how they recorded “Woody’s Roundup” for the Disney/Pixar film, Toy Story 2, which earned them a Grammy in 2001.
