Riders In The Sky to celebrate ‘Christmas the Cowboy Way’ at Blinn


Riders In The Sky will bring their holiday favorite “Christmas the Cowboy Way” to the Blinn College District’s Dr. W.W. O’Donnell Performing Arts Center on Sunday, Dec. 8.

The 4 p.m. performance will feature a mix of western music classics, traditional Christmas carols and Riders In The Sky’s original songs with a comedic twist.

Original songs include “Riding Home on Christmas Eve,” “Deck the Bunkhouse Walls” and “The Last Christmas Medley You’ll Ever Need to Hear.” The audience will be invited to participate in a variety of traditional Christmas music, including “I’ll Be Home for Christmas” and “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.”

Riders In The Sky has been performing for more than 30 years, with more than 6,000 concert appearances in all 50 states and in 10 countries. The group won a Grammy Award for “Best Musical Album for Children” in 2001 for “Woody’s Round Up,” based on the movie “Toy Story 2.”

Tickets are available at www.blinn.edu/boxoffice and are $35 for adults and $20 for children ages 10 and under. Tickets for Blinn employees and groups of 10 or more will be $30. Student “rush” tickets are $10 each.

“Christmas the Cowboy Way” is part of Blinn’s Performing Arts Series, which is in its fourth season. The Broadway Musical “Finding Neverland” comes to the O’Donnell Center on Friday, Jan. 31, and “The Young Irelanders” return on Tuesday, March 7. Both shows are at 7 p.m.
