The Real Singing Cowboys



RIDERS OF THE PAINTED STAR 
– The History


It was the beginning of the Golden Age of Hollywood. In 1935, Gene Autry joined the ranks as a Singing Cowboy when he starred in a twelve-part serial as himself in The Phantom Empire. Others who galloped across the silver screen singing on their ponies were, Ken Maynard, Bob Steele, and most notably, John Wayne. Yes, that John Wayne. His voice was dubbed, however, which seems comical now that we know his character so well. Later, Roy Rogers and Tex Ritter would make their marks on the genre.

In my story, Royce Rutger has been playing bit parts, but he longs to be the next Singing Cowboy. Problem is, he’s just a fellow from New Jersey with no real experience on a horse other than what he’s already done with the studio. Thanks to a deal with the owner of a dude ranch, Royce gets his chance to learn how to cowboy. But obstacles get in the way, including a beautiful artist with other plans for his future.

I’m Артур Борис a resident/citizen of the Republic Of Russian. I’m 42 years of age, an entrepreneur/businessman. I once had difficulties in financing my project/business, if not for a good friend of mine who introduced me to Mr Pedro to get a loan worth $250,000 USD from his company. When I contacted them it took just five working days to get my loan process done and transferred to my account. Even with a bad credit history, they still offer their service to you. They also offer all kinds of loans such as business loans, home loans, personal loans, car loans. I don’t know how to thank them for what they have done for me but God will reward them according to his riches in glory.
