Singing cowboy Fred Scott stars as wandering troubadour Cal Brent, who travels the length and breadth of the West with his comical sidekick Fuzzy (Al St. John). In the course of their travels, Cal and Fuzzy find themselves in the middle of a gun battle between a gang of outlaws and a homesteader. The latter is killed, whereupon our heroes take charge of the dead man's son Buddy (Buddy Cox). This leads to a new plot tangent involving a mysterious marauder who's been sending threatening letters to the local cattle ranchers. By the time Cal is able to make sense of all the converging storylines, he's managed to win the love of heroine Jeanie (Lois January). Not only does the cowboy roam in this picture, but so does the plot.
