Nashville, TN – Grammy Award-winning artists Riders In The Sky are scheduled to perform immediately following the STS-133 Crew Return Ceremony at Ellington Airport’s Hangar 276 in Houston on Thursday, March 10, 2011.  Saddle Pals of all ages are invited to come out and welcome home the “Space Cowboys,” and enjoy the best in Comedy & Western by “America’s Favorite Cowboys,” Riders In The Sky!  Gates open at 3:30pm to the public.
This was the Space Shuttle Discovery’s 39th and final flight and the 133rd flight of the Space Shuttle program. During the STS-133 mission, the shuttle and its crew of six Americans docked with the International Space Station, delivered the Permanent Multipurpose Module, the Express Logistics Carrier 4, a humanoid robot called “Robonaut,” and provided critical spare components for the station.

About Riders In The Sky 
For thirty years Riders In The Sky have been keepers of the flame passed on by the Sons of the Pioneers, Gene Autry and Roy Rogers, reviving and revitalizing the genre. And while remaining true to the integrity of Western music, they have themselves become modern-day icons by branding the genre with their own legendary wacky humor and way-out Western wit, and all along encouraging buckaroos and buckarettes to live life “The Cowboy Way!” Riders In The Sky are exceptional not just in the sense that their music is of superlative standards (they are the ONLY exclusively Western artist to have won a Grammy, and Riders have won two), but by the fact that their accomplishments are an exception to the rule as well.
