ST. CLOUD - One of America's first and favorite western singing groups is coming to the Paramount Theatre.

For 75 years, musical act Sons of the Pioneers have been playing sold-out shows around the country. Their highly recognizable and beloved classic western musical style has garnered more awards than any other country act in history.

Founded in part by Roy Rogers, one of the many hits of the Pioneers, the song "Tumbling Tumbleweeds," has appeared in films and television for generations.

The group itself also experienced a great deal of crossover success - between 1935 and 1984, the Pioneers appeared in 87 films and television series.

In 1971, Bob Nolan and Tim Spencer, two of the act's founding members, were elected to the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame, and the act has been given a star in the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

While most of the founding members of the group have passed away, the current line-up of musicians includes members ushered in by original members.

"Sons of the Pioneers" are currently on tour sharing their classic style with a whole new generation of fans, and on Thursday, they're stopping to play a pair of shows at the Paramount Theatre. The shows are at 1:30 p.m. and at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets are $16 for adults and $15 for seniors. For more information, visit the Paramount Theatre's website.
