High Country News;12/25/2006, Vol. 38 Issue 24, p5
The article presents a profile of Roger Clyne, the leader of Peacemakers band. A product of southern Arizona, Clyne is both an environmentalist and an ardent writer of country music. Through its country tours, the band spreads the message of environmentalism by giving a portion of its proceeds to environmental causes. Clyne's music reverberates with the landscape and folklore of Western U.S. He wrote the theme of "King of the Hill," Fox's network animated sitcom. The band's first album is titled "Honky Tonk Union".
