The Son's of the Pioneers, Roy Rogers, Gene Aurtry, and the rest.

Those were of course professional entertainers, not working cowboys.

I do know ten of more good people that are not professional musicians that play, or sing in church, weddings, and funerals

I guess in a way they are the same as "singing cowboys"? .

Just rambling, done now.

There were some who sounded like wind howling through a drainpipe.

Check out the movie "Rustler's Rhapsody". It's a comedic update on the old singing cowboy shows.

It's more of a parody...which I didn't appreciate, so say the least. To each his own.

Can’t enjoy any singing cowboy movie or pre-1940 or so westerns in general.

Earliest good western to me was Stage Coach

Ken Maynard was the first Singing Cowboy in 1930, when he sang two songs in 'Sons Of The Saddle'.

I'll try again someday with the new singing "cowboys". Everyday folks that play, and sing in church.
