3 Trails West is a Kansas City band built upon the Silver Screen tradition of Cowboy music. Riding upon the shoulders of Roy Rogers, Gene Autry, the Sons of the Pioneers and Andy Parker, 3 Trails West has joined the contemporary ranks of such artists as Riders in the Sky, Rex Allen, Jr., Sons of the San Joaquin, Michael Martin Murphey and others to ride the wave of resurgent popularity of this purely American musical art form.
