Doc, as a youngster I loved the original Riders of the Purple Sage. My favorite songs included "Blue Shadows on the Trail", "Drifting Along with the Tumbling Weeds"and "Ghost Riders in the Sky" (reworked in the  Blues Brothers Two movie.) Didn't Roy Rogers  sing with them once in awhile?

These days when Hubby and I go to Cracker Barrel we enjoy rocking in the porch  rockers  and listening to the old time country music played at the restaurant. It is so nice that Cracker Barrel often plays those old Riders of the Purple Sage songs. 

Paradoxically I am a heavy metal fan, too, and even played bass guitar in a heavy metal band. Never was a Dead Head, though.
