This is the debut album of Hal Roper.
"The incomparable and ever popular first troubadour of Texas
blends his beautiful southern drawl and silky smooth country voice with both traditional and high
tech production. Hal also shows off his fan-tastic yodeling prowess on "Way Out There." "
Producer/Songwriter, Monday Rose Productions
1) Singing the Blues
Tipping the hat to Marty Robbin's #1 hit. Hal has been greatly influenced over his musical career
by Robbins. His vocals are just as smooth but with a touch of Texas twang.
2) 10,000 Kisses
Duet on love that lasts a lifetime
3) East Texas Road Kill Bar & Grill
Fun, tongue-in-cheek humor in the style of Ray Stevens.
4) Way Out There
True western music at its best. An often requested favorite by Hal's fans that showcases his vocal
range and yodeling. Takes you back to the open ranges with cowboys and campfires.
5) Sister Golden Hair
Hal began playing gigs around the Northeast Texas area in the late 1970's. Summer 1979 Hal met
his wife Karen while serenading this #1 hit from the light folk-rock band, America.
6) Sweet Texas Woman
Heart-felt melody on a love that spans miles. A true ballad about the song writer and his wife.
7) We're Rollin'
Some great steel guitar licks will get you rollin' tonight with this toe-tappin' do-wop.
“Go with the groove and feel that beat!”
8) Laura Lee
Remember summer romance with yearning, layered harmonies reminiscent of a 1960's surf ballad.
Edgy, new country sound of a love gone wrong.
10) Lovin' On
Through the good times and the bad; beating the odds with a love to last the ages.
11) The Last One on Your Mind
An in-your-face, neo-traditional tune saying goodbye to a two-timing player.
12) Truckers' Boogie
An up-tempo boogie. Get up and dance your way across the nation!
