The Citrus College Clarion interviews...

by John Michaelides

The band that gave Disney Pixar fans the theme song for Woody, “the rootinest, tootinest cowboy in the Wild Wild West” in “Toy Story 2,” will perform on stage at Citrus College.

Riders in the Sky, the band behind “Woody’s Roundup,” will visit during their nationwide tour at 2 p.m. May 7 at the Haugh Performing Arts Center.

Now in their 40th year together as a band, Riders in the Sky lead singer and guitarist Douglas Green, 71, better known by his stage name Ranger Doug, joked the longevity of the band is “sheer stubbornness.”

“We just love it,” Green said. “We’re bringing it to the new generation. We all have that same commitment.”

The singer and guitarist said over the years, it has become easier for the band to write new music.

“There’s joy in making music,” Green said.

Joey Miskulin, 68, known as Joey the CowPolka King, said although the band members came from very different backgrounds before coming together, the band had a common passion.

“What keeps us going is love of music, being around each other,” Miskulin said.

Riders in the Sky formed in 1977 in Nashville, Tenn. and got their first Hollywood opportunity in the film “Sweet Dreams” in 1985. The band also starred in the ‘80s shows “Tumbleweed Theater” and “Riders Radio Theater.”

Miskulin said over the years, they perform songs differently and are not structured, allowing the band to be creative.
