Can you name these singers guest starring in classic TV Westerns?

Crooners, teen idols and popstars wore their boots made for walkin’ in the Old West.

It’s not uncommon to see a famous singer make a cameo or play a fictional version of themselves on a sitcom, and sketch variety shows were made to showcase multitalented stars.

But a few hitmakers also appeared in a very different kind of show — Westerns! Here are 10 musicians who all stopped by the television frontier. Can you recognize each performer?

  1. Who is this famous crooner in Rawhide?
  2. This Rat Pack member appeared on The Rifleman twice.
  3. This singer and actor played Jesse James in an episode of Hondo.
  4. Who is playing the guitar in The Virginian?
  5. Who is talking to Clint Eastwood in Rawhide?
  6. Can you name this R&B singer in The Big Valley?
  7. This singer appeared in a Bonanza Christmas episode.
  8. This country icon appeared in Wagon Train early in his career.
  9. Which former teen idol named Bobby also appeared in Wagon Train?
  10. This sitcom star recorded the 1962 number one hit "Johnny Angel" and appeared in Daniel Boone.

She was the one I thought I was going to miss. Just took a very lucky guess.

9 for 10.
Wayne was in 2 episodes, one a Christmas episode that I imagine MeTV will run soon.
It looked like it was made to promote the Bonanza Christmas album, which was
pretty darn good. Pernell Roberts and Lorne Greene had beautiful, trained voices.

Roberts did some singing himself on the show. I, too, thought he sounded nice.

Looks like Nancy Sinatra is wearing brown skin paint to represent a Latina. Not surprising for the era, but still sad.

I am in shock! I got 10/10, but only because I recognized the people in the pictures. Have to admit the first Western I ever had any interest in was Silverado...and before that, Quick Draw McGraw (yep, the cartoon horse)...
