    Ton of good cowboy music shared thus far many of which are among my all time favorites but I’ll throw out Tom Russell just because no one has mentioned him yet. He’s a relative new comer to the genre but has written and is still writing some great stuff. The man is an amazing story teller. Check out “Tonight We Ride” for a taste of what he’s all about. Few artists, past or present, set my mind out on the western frontier like he does.

As a child, I recall Dudley Pitts had leased the Halfway Ranch west of us and passed by the ranch hdq. here, driving his herd of maybe 1000 cows to the Halfway from Clovis, N.M. (About 100 miles as the crow flies) The movie, The Rounders, didn't miss the mark and I remember neighbors coming to help us brand with their horses loaded in home built trailers and their white tarp covered bedrolls in the bed of their pickups. And would stay and help until the job was done.

    Lots of memories and Cattle Call reminds me of that era.

But I also included Gene Autry, Roy Rogers, Tex Ritter, Marty robbins, Don Edwards and many more.

    My favorite though is "The Searchers" by the Sons of the Pioneers. And "I Ride An Old Paint" by Johnny Cash.

    Johnny Cash has one song on his early album called "Stampede" that features the Carter Sisters and Mother Maybelle, and also an early work by the Statler Brothers.

    I was in the Buffalo Museum in Cody, Wyoming when I got the idea to accumulate my collection and put in into one "album."

    I've got one of John Lomax's books titled "Cowboy Songs & Other Frontier Ballads" published in 1938.Country & Western music has been a life long hobby of mine & I've been fortunate to have met several artists over the years,I've had some close friends that were DJ's on the radio & have done some shows w/them from time to time which is how I got to meet some of the artists.I got to know Rosetta Wills {Bob Wills' daughter}very well when I built my"Bob Wills tribute colt" {some of u may have seen it} It's the one w/the very rare mesquite grips on it.I originally bought the Lomax book to study it & didn't realize what an investment it would turn out to be,back when I bought it I paid $45 dollars for it & last year I saw one on Abe Books & they were asking $375.00 for it.

    "Ghost Riders in the Sky". Many have done it but Gene Autry did it best.
