They are, collectively, Riders in the Sky. From l-r: Woody Paul "King of the Cowboy Fiddlers", Joey "The Cowpolka King", Ranger Doug "The Idol of American Youth", and Too Slim "The Man of a Million Titles".
I met some fellow fans online and we started the (then) unofficial Cyberpal fan club. I'm still secretary of the group even though we aren't nearly as active as we've been in the past. The Riders made us an official group on our 10th anniversary last year. I wasn't present at the time, but the president and vice-president of the club were and I got a full report and pictures from it.
So whenever I have a bad day, I just want to relax, need some support and don't feel like relying on CSI or another TV show, I grab one of the 30 CDs I own - and its about to be 32 - and put it on to listen. I know all the songs by heart and can sing along for them all. I've been to 27 shows in 13 years, 28 tomorrow, and I don't think I'll ever be tired of seeing them perform live or listening to their music.
Like I said, just four very special guys who gave me a special gift. They've heard the story too. It's always so much fun to get to see them. My dad and I are leaving tomorrow morning for Portland and coming home Thursday. The trip is just for the concert. :) I can't wait.
