The answer to that question is simple. Ranger Doug (the idol of American youth!) has a Masters of Literature, Too Slim (the man of a thousand hats!) has a Masters of Wildlife Management, and Woody Paul (King of the cowboy fiddlers!) has a PhD in Theoretical Physics from MIT. I kid you not. Oh, and the new guy (only been with the band since the 90's) Joey (the Cowpolka King!) has only been playing accordion since he was 4.
Just thought that useless bit of trivia was pretty funny.
