Southern Raised Bluegrass Covers 'Ghost Riders In The Sky'

Southern Raised Bluegrass brings the bass sound with this chilling rendition of ‘Ghost Riders in the Sky.’ Written by actor Stan Jones, this country hit has been covered by hundreds of artists over the years including Johnny Cash and Vaughn Monroe.

The song tells the story of a cowboy legend about a group of ghost riders that eternally chase a herd of cattle.

“Yipie I oh, yipie I ay, ghost riders in the sky
Their face is gaunt, their eyes were blurred”

Siblings Lindsay, Emily and Matt plus their friend Alex, make up the Southern Raised Bluegrass band. The group was raised in the Ozark Mountains and they have blended their traditional music upbringing with multiple genres and their deep-rooted faith. For years, they’ve entertained us with popular covers of songs such as ‘What A Day That Will Be’ and ‘Shenandoah.’

The group describes themselves as creating a ‘Southern Raised trademark sound where classical meets bluegrass and city streets meets country roads. SR has morphed a progressive sound that spans Christian Country/ Bluegrass, Celtic and Classical.’

Today, they’re taking on ‘Ghost Riders In The Sky’ and giving it a southern bass sound.

“As the riders leaned on by him, he heard one call his name
If you want to save your soul from hell a riding on our range
Then cowboy change your ways today or with us you will ride
Tryin' to catch the devil herd across these endless skies”
