The show "Make Me A Cowboy" is set in the 1880's after the railroads have come through and put the cowboys out of work. The ranch owners decide to turn the old "Jumpin' J. Ranch" into a "dude" ranch, so they can invite city folks out west for a down-home Cowboy experience. To entertain their guests, the Cowboys grab their guitars and put on a show which features traditional Cowboy Classics and some brand new (soon to be classics) Cowboy songs. The full harmony arrangements, top-notch musicians, mix of traditional and classic cowboy music make this CD a tribute to all things Western. If there's any "wild west" living somewhere your everyday city life, this show, this music, these songs, will make you feel like a Cowboy!
