As one of the original members of the Sons of the Pioneers singing group, he performed with them full-time from 1933 to 1937. He was also elected to the Country Music Hall of Fame as a member of the Sons of the Pioneers in 1980 (under his real name Leonard Slye), and added as a solo artist in 1988. Rogers also starred on radio from 1944 until 1954, and on CBS television from 1951-1964.

Roy Rogers and Dale Evans gave one of their last public performances together in the 1992 CBS-TV special Holiday Greetings from The Ed Sullivan Show, which also featured the Muppets.
