ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Selected by CD Baby for their MUSIC FOR LAZY SUMMER DAYS Compilation!
"Known for her scorching blues guitar, Barksdale takes a more reflective approach on this release and utilizes the great tear jerking elements found in country and folk and adds vocal arrangements that border on angelic." - CD Baby

So, you've toured around the world as Michael Jackson's lead guitarist... you've toured as a guitarist and vocalist with Canned Heat... you've performed your music live on Baywatch?... and you're a renowned blues artist with several major international releases - not to mention a top selling blues album at CD Baby... So, what's next? A Country Folk EP!

Becky explores her Texas roots (little known fact that her two great-uncles were members of The Sons Of The Pioneers) with this beautiful collection of 5 original songs.

From the touching sentiment of "I'll Say Goodbye" to the delicate and deeply personal "I've Missed," Becky's voice and guitar shine with emotion and honesty. The intimacy of this 2002 release may be a reflection of how it was recorded. With the exception of Armen Ksajikian's cello performance on "I've Missed," Sean Caffey's pedal steel on "I Can't Stop Loving You", Cowgirl Blues was composed, performed and produced by Becky alone in her studio - with special thanks to Joey Waronker.

Be the first to discover this very home-grown indie release and these soon to be classic songs! - TJ Johnson

Can't stop listening to these songs!

I Love It!
There is something so pure and heartfelt about these songs and this recording. "I've Missed" is my new favorite song of all time! Talk about your 'tear in the beer' song.

I need MORE!!!
Call it 'modern country' or 'contemporary country' or 'country rock', the name doesn't matter. What counts is the music you hear and the talent that gives you the music. So, just call it GREAT STUFF! It's hard, very hard, to pick just one as a favorite, but the first track, "I Can't Stop Loving You" just blew me away. I thought it was going to be a cover of the old country standard that's been done by so many singers. But NO! This is an entirely original song, written by Becky, and it is SOOooo GOOoood!!! You will enjoy every track on this album and, like me, wish for more. Extra points for having written all the songs herself. I just love singer/songwriters. Way to go girl!!
