Roy Rogers and Dale Evans were two top talents in country music. They sang together on several beautiful melodies. These songs included ‘This Is My Country, The Fightin’ Side Of Me, and What Can I Do For My Country?’
The duo appeared on The Ed Sullivan Show. They walked out on the stage dressed in white. Rogers appears in a suit and cowboy hat while Evans is in a dress.
Behind both of them are backup singers. Rogers has four men, and Evans has four women. They’re all dressed in blue and ready to sing.
Rogers and Evans deliver a bit of singing before a sky background. As this is a section more for Roy, Dale leaves the frame.
Roy takes charge and starts singing ‘This Is My Country, The Fightin’ Side Of Me & What Can I Do For My Country?’
The tempo with the instruments is progressive and engaging. His backup singers bring extra power to the song as well.
Dale returns when it comes time to sing ‘What Can I Do For My Country?’ She takes center stage now with a slow and emotional melody. Her backup singers provide smooth vocals as she sings patriotism and devotion to America.
Finally, it’s time for them all to come together. Rogers, Evans, and all the backup dancers start singing ‘God Bless America’ together. It’s a powerful finale to this stellar country music team.
This is a routine that Rogers and Evans have performed many times before. They sang this number on The Ed Sullivan Show as part of a patriotic celebration.
In this breathtaking tribute, this husband/wife duo has as much love for America as they do for each other. Country music doesn’t get as grand, romantic, and patriotic as this.
