Pueblo Co. officials revive county theme song

Pueblo Co. officials revive county...

PUEBLO COUNTY, Colo. - Pueblo County is reviving an old tune.

It's called "On the Sunshine Banks of the Arkansas."

The song was originally written in 1975 by Bryan Richie and Doyle Trantham.

It was popular enough that council made it a city anthem in 1977.

County commissioners decided to revive the song this year.

Commissioners say the song will be a "theme" not the county anthem.

The song was re-recorded with a list of Pueblo musicians.

For more on the song, visit the Pueblo Chieftain’s website.
