The Legendary Sons of the Pioneers are "the premier Western singing group of all time" (as described by the Western Music Association). Elected to Nashville's Country Music Hall of Fame , the National Cowboy Hall of Fame, the Western Music Hall of Fame, the Texas Swing Hall of Fame and designated a "National Treasure" by the Smithsonian Institute, the Pioneers have become as legendary as the American West they represent. Their original songs "Cool Water" and "Tumbling Tumbleweeds" have been placed in the Grammy Hall of Fame. Many of their other songs, such as "Ghost Riders in the Sky", have become forever entwined into the very fabric of the West. The show features the unique vocal harmonies for which they are world famous. With a sprinkling of cowboy humor their yahoo type show is perfect for all ages.

We went to Son of the Pioneer show at 2 pm at the Baldknobbers Theater. The show was in a very relaxed setting with the entertainer singing & telling of the history of the Sons of Pioneers - We enjoyed for a nice afternoon show.

We have been coming to this show in Branson for years and have never been disappointed. The current lead singer is excellent and the group stays true to the history and the music of the old west.

Great show at the McPherson Kansas Opera House. Near sell-out audience. All the great old western songs of cowboys, campfires, and life on the trail. Fun entertainment!

If you enjoy the songs of the old west you will want to see Sons of the Pioneers. Great songs for the genre. You will know the songs they sing. They added very good stories. Artists were excellent in their performance. You will not be disapponted.

If you enjoy the music of the Old West, this is a great show for you! It's family friendly, and the singers are very talented.
