ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
One DJ said, “’The Silver Screen Cowboy Project’ is a concept that is way overdue.” When Marvin O’Dell set out to record a CD that would remedy that problem, it occurred to him that this could be an opportunity for several different western artists to gain some important exposure. After asking 19 other performers if they would be willing to be a part of this project and hearing them reply “Yes”, the work began to bring this recording to life.

This album is a double CD with 24 songs by 20 different western artists. Each song is an original tune written about the Silver Screen Cowboys of the ‘30’s, ‘40’s, and ‘50’s. Roy Rogers, Gene Autry, Rex Allen, Rocky Lane, Hopalong Cassidy, The Lone Ranger, The Sons of the Pioneers, John Wayne, Tex Ritter – they’re all here along with the Cisco Kid and Pancho, Johnny Mack Brown, Gabby Hayes, Buck Jones, Tim McCoy, Gary Cooper, and others. This is a beautiful nostalgic tribute to the cowboy heroes that movie-goers learned to love during this special time in the history of cinema. Even the small screen cowboys of the 1950’s are given special representation.

Artists on this project are: Tom Hiatt (former songwriter with the House of Cash and highly respected cowboy balladeer from Arizona); Curly Musgrave (multiple Western Music Association [WMA] award winner for his vocal and instrumental work); Dave Stamey (2000 WMA Male Performer of the Year and 2-time [2007 & 2008] WMA Entertainer of the Year); Marvin O’Dell (WMA 2007 DJ of the Year and accomplished western songwriter); Bill Barwick (2005 Academy of Western Artists [AWA] Male Vocalist of the Year and voice of the STARZ Networks Westerns Channel); Journey West (2008 WMA Trio Harmony Award Winners); Les Gilliam (prestigious Wrangler Award Winner and Oklahoma’s Official State Balladeer); Brian Golbey (British entertainer highly respected as a country and western music historian and archivist with the British Archive of Country Music); Dan Roberts (2001 AWA Male Vocalist of the Year and 2002 AWA Entertainer of the Year who co-wrote Garth Brooks’ #1 hit song “Beaches of Cheyenne”); Tom & Donna Hatton (2005 AWA Poetry CD of the Year); Earl Gleason (well-known cowboy balladeer and songwriter from New Mexico); Way Out West (unique and entertaining western trio from Tucson, AZ); Doc Stovall (long-time Nashville sideman and songwriter with a song recorded by the Statler Bros.); Kip Calahan (AWA Song of the Year award winner, 2004 WMA Female Performer of the Year and Song of the Year, and 2005 AWA Western Album of the Year and Female Vocalist of the Year); Hank Cramer (highly recognized folk and western singer from the state of Washington); Jim Jones (2008 AWA Male Vocalist of the Year); Theresa O’Dell (DJ for Heartland Public Radio who is greatly respected for her background and harmony vocals); Joe Baer (Arizona’s top cowboy campfire singer); Buckshot Dot (winner of the Will Rogers Medallion Award and AWA Top Female Cowboy Poet of the Year).

So – “Grab your hat and saddle your hoss and let the show begin. Let’s put those rough ridin’ cowboy heroes back in the saddle again.”
