The Sons of the Pioneers are one of America's earliest Western singing groups whose classic recordings set a new standard for performers of Western music. Known for the high quality of their vocal performances, musicianship, and songwriting, they produced finely-crafted and innovative recordings that have inspired many Western music performers and remained popular through the years. Since 1933, through many changes in membership, the Sons of the Pioneers have remained one of the longest-surviving country music vocal groups in history.
Roy Rogers earned the title King of the Cowboys for his enormous popularity in films, on television and radio, and in personal appearances. But before starring in his first film, Rogers earned his eventual place in the Country Music Hall of Fame by founding the Sons of the Pioneers.
The Pioneers’ unique harmony and their fine original songs—such as “Cool Water” and “Tumbling Tumbleweeds” led to a series of radio transcriptions, a Decca record contact, and film appearances in westerns, including two with Gene Autry.
