The roots of Joe Baer's raising are the gospel and cowboy songs he learned from his parents.
Born in Tennessee, raised and ranched in Arizona, also ranched in Montana and Florida, Joe has lived the cowboy way all his life. He started singing at age three in a trio with his Mom and Dad at church and has been performing cowboy and gospel music since that beginning.
Joe sings authentic cowboy and western music while accompanying himself on guitar, although he has also performed as a member of many western music groups. He has performed at cowboy poets’ gatherings, western music festivals, cowboy dinner theaters, cookouts, concert halls, museums, churches, private parties and anywhere else people want to hear a cowboy sing.
This album "Worshipful Places and Spaces" is dedicated to the memory of my Mom and Dad. They sang, played music, and set the examples of living by basic Christian values. The roots of my raising are the gospel and cowboy songs they taught me and encouraged me to sing almost before I could talk.
