Song History...Tumbling Tumbleweeds...
The song "Tumbling Tumbleweeds" was written by one of the "Sons of The Pioneers", Bob Nolan. When I think of the "Sons of The Pioneers", none other than "Roy Rogers" comes to mind!
In our version of this old western favorite, Travis and Tony sing lead, while my dad, George Harvey, and I, Janey Loree sing harmony. Along with songs like "Shifting Whispering Sands" and "Cool Water", Tumbling Tumbleweeds became one of our favorites to perform. We would use this song to get us in the mood to practice! This is another song that we listened to over and over again to write down the words and music. We had an old favorite cassette tape that was fast wearing out!
