    Cowboy music

    Yes Colt collecting isn't just about cowboy guns but the Cowboys played a big part in history. There are a great number of Western songs and I can't pick one song or singer that is the best to fit our history. Do you have any favorites that take you right back to the old west?

    Management if you feel this doesn't fit in then it won't hurt my feelings if you close it.... I can find a safe space.

    Here is a modern intrumental called Ghost Riders in the Sky and it's about 3 minutes of the best guitar picking you will ever hear. When I hear this it reminds me of every western horseback chase I ever watched, it's exciting.

    A favorite tune of mine- ! one of the oneline venders is selling a disk with 30+ versions of it- did not order it yet but tempted to! Clark and Campbell were great!

    It's about the times and the culture when cowboys lived. Times long gone but we collect remembrances of those times. Cowboy music and story telling adds to the collecting spirit for me.

    I have been collecting cowboy and western music for a number of years, since about 1989 or so. Some of my favorites were recorded in 1941 by Johnny Lomax and featured some of the old time cowboys. Their singing was not too melodic, but it is authentic. 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."

    Gene Autry had a whole bunch, Jimmie Rodgers would be right there, too. Billy Walker had Cross the Brazos at Waco- had a Marty Robbins sound to it. Willie and Waylon had some more modern cowboy songs.
