A singing cowboy himself, Douglas B. Green (better known as Ranger Doug from the Grammy-award-winning group Riders In The Sky) is uniquely suited to write the story of the singing cowboy. He has been collecting information and interviews on western music, films, and performers for nearly thirty years. In this volume, he traces this history from the early days of vaudeville and radio, through the heyday of movie westerns before World War II, to the current revival.

Douglas B. There is information in this book that I have not found in other books about the singing cowboys. All in all the book is very well worth it's money for what it offers. What I do find disappointing however is the fact that the book does not quite live up to it's title. For example the book covers a lot of information about artistes who had nothing to do with 'singing in a saddle', such as radio and stage singers only, a good many of whom either died a long time ago.

Singing in the Saddle book. A singing cowboy himself, Douglas B. Green (better known as Ranger Doug from the group Riders In The Sky) is uniquely suited to write the story of the singing cowboy.

Singing in the Saddle is praiseworthy merely on the basis of Green’s carefully written biographies. But Green (and, it should be noted, The Country Music Foundation Press and Vanderbilt University Press) have gone the extra mile by including several important ancillary materials that further enhance the value of the text. While Green occasionally has difficulty seeing the big picture, Singing in the Saddle should facilitate a more careful consideration of the singing cowboy in future studies of all American popular music.

Green's Singing in the Saddle provides an articulate wide-ranging history of the Singing Cowboy from its origins in western folk culture to the triumph of the B Westerns. An excellent introduction and a must for country music collections.

The singing cowboy films additionally provided cameo spots for many other country music performers.

Interesting and engaging! Has everything you want to know about the facts and careers of the vast majority of Singing Cowboys. In a couple of the closer profiles I would have loved to have learned more about the people in general, like a little more gossip or reflection on their personal lives to keep up the pace. But that's definitely not what this is about, it's way more of a text book source than a biography. Which is great too!
Shadowbourne
If you grew up during the time of the Singing Cowboy movies you will love this well written and documented book. If this was before your time then it will be an enlightening book and well worth the read.
It's so easy
A great book on the cowboy singers from the past!
Thetalas
The book is great, not fond of all the underlining the previous owner did to it. But the contents are worth it.

Asher

Enjoyed it a great deal!
"Singing in the Saddle" is a very nice book with a slightly different angle to to it's counterparts. There is information in this book that I have not found in other books about the singing cowboys. All in all the book is very well worth it's money for what it offers. What I do find disappointing however is the fact that the book does not quite live up to it's title.For example the book covers a lot of information about artistes who had nothing to do with 'singing in a saddle', such as radio and stage singers only, a good many of whom either died a long time ago and/or I have never heard of.
Personally, I would have liked the book to have covered only the movie singing cowboys, not enough was said about some of them, apart of course from Gene Autry, Roy Rogers and Tex Ritter.
As a book that deals with the history of country and western music and the performers of such, then you are getting good value for money.
