You know what? I may actually be confusing the two groups..."Sons of the Pioneers" and "Riders of the Purple Sage." I may have attributed songs to one group that rightfully belong to the other. I'd better do a Google search and straighten myself out on this. It has been so many years.

OK, I looked up the two groups. No wonder I am confused. Roy Rogers sang with both at one time or another, and Gene Autry sang with the "Riders." The two groups were similar. I don't think I could tell them apart just by sitting and rocking at Cracker Barrel.
