Western-Cowboy and Old Time Country

Everyone loves familiar songs of the Old West... songs remembered from one's childhood, and those associated with a country way of life. Let your “Wagon Wheels” follow the “Tumbling Tumbleweeds” through the “Oklahoma Hills” and along the “Navajo Trail,” or go out “Walkin' After Midnight” 'neath the starry skies above, or yearn for “Cool Water” and the “Shenandoah”... but “Don't Fence Me In!”

Authentic old-time country style fiddle playing evokes musical images of historic yesterday and the saga of the American cowboy along the Western trails.

Includes the great music of early country singers and the Grand Old Opry, and unforgettable harmonies like the Sons of the Pioneers.
