THE TELEVISION WESTERN

The Great Western Theme Songs

When I searched for the top television westerns of the day, I got a few Netflix series. That’s it.  No, there is not much out there anymore. At one time, television westerns were a mainstay of programming, especially in the early years.  The 1950’s relied on movie and radio series westerns and in  many cases their stars.  The successful shows invited series of similar content to arrive.  The 60’s and 70’s brought us many original westerns.  Since then, they have seemed to ride off into the sunset, never to return.

With the early westerns came some great theme songs.  I considered many shows with great opening and closing tunes when I compiled my top 10 western theme songs.  I wrote down this list (in no particular order) before paring it down to 10:
The Lone Ranger
Gene Autry
Wild Wild West
Bonanza
Have Gun Will Travel
Rawhide
Wyatt Earp
Lonesome Dove
Maverick
The Rebel
Gunsmoke
Zorro
Wagon Train
The Big Valley
The Roy Rogers Show
The High Chaparral
Cheyenne
Bat Masterson
Jim Bowie
Death Valley Days
Sugarfoot
Bronco
Fury
