Singing Cowboys

"When my time comes, just skin me and put me up there on Trigger, just as though nothing had ever changed."

We thought it would be fun to celebrate the singing cowboy legends, from back in the day of the Saturday matinee.

Did you know that Roy Rogers real name was Leonard Franklin Slye? Born November 5, 1911 in Cincinnati, Ohio.

When he moved to California to become a singer, and did with the group “Sons of the Pioneers” …for four year of little success.

Leonard appeared in many western films, still being billed as Leonard Slye. The day that Gene Autry temporarily walked out on his movie contract was the day that Roy Rogers was born.

Roy Roger’s became a major contender for Gene Autry as the nation’s favorite singing cowboy!

See you at the picture show!

Happy Trails to You!
