Green (March 20, 1946), better known by his stage name Ranger Doug, is an American musician, arranger and award-winning Western music songwriter, best known for his work with the Western music and comedy group Riders in the Sky in which he plays guitar and sings lead and baritone vocals. He is also an exceptionally accomplished yodeler. With the Riders, he is billed as "Ranger Doug - The Idol of American Youth" and "Governor of the Great State of Rhythm." Green graduated from the University of Michigan in 1968. He has a Masters degree in Literature from Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee. He continues to write as a music historian. His 2002 Vanderbilt University Press book "Singing in the Saddle" was the first comprehensive look at the singing cowboy phenomenon that swept the United States in the 1930s.show more
