CLYDE Communities for the Arts presents, "Riders In The Sky", America's Favorite Cowboys. The concert is scheduled for 7:30 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 13 at the Clyde High School Auditorium.

With 28 plus years and well over 5,000 performances and counting under their collective cowboy belt, Riders In The Sky, the Grammy-winning western music group whose music is firmly grounded in the rich American music traditions of such legendary cowboys as Gene Autry, Roy Rogers, and the Sons of the Pioneers, and whose fun-filled performances have enchanted audiences of all ages, are themselves the stuff of legend.

Of greatest significance, however, is that in 1982, Riders In the Sky became the first exclusively western music artist to join the Grand Ole Opry.

Coming two years after the release of their first album "Three On The Trail," their Opry induction recognized the then trio's instantly-earned stature, not only as the foremost custodians of America's great western music heritage, but as among country music's leading entertainers.

Tickets concert will be sold from the Clyde High School Auditorium box office from 10 a.m. until noon, Saturday, Sept. 8. All seats are reserved and tickets are $20 per person.
