“Fresh from the Festival, Part 1.”  Nancy is just back from the International Western Music Association’s festival in Albuquerque. She’ll play selections from the music and poetry she heard over 5 days. Today’s episode includes highlights from the Western Music Awards show, which is like the Grammys but for western artists. In the upcoming weeks, you can hear Parts 2 & 3 of “Fresh From the Festival” which will have music/poetry from many more artists who performed at the event. 

Cowboy Tracks for 1:00pm on Nov 2nd, 2018

“In the Saddle.” Today's show is named after the first song, "I Make My Livin' in the Saddle", but there are other saddle-time songs, such as Cricket Roll from Trinity Seely and Ride the Wind by Dawn Anita.  There are also a few cowboy poems by Mark Munzert and Al "Doc" Mehl and many other great western works that well represent the genre. There are sure to be some that tug on your heartstrings and others that will have you tapping your feet!

“Go West.” Today’s program is called “Go West” which is the title of a song on our playlist and is also a general descriptor for the songs to come. You’ll hear from the High Country Cowboys, The Cowboy Way, “V” the Gypsy Cowbelle, Donnie Poindexter, Adrian, Jean Prescott and many more. It’s all good music, so enjoy!

Cowboy Tracks for 1:00pm on Oct 5th, 2018

“Bob Wills’ Legacy.” On this special episode of Cowboy Tracks, we’ll hear the musical legacy of Bob Wills. Wills is known as the “King of Western Swing.” He had a massive influence on performers and listeners alike. Many of his 300+ songs are music standards. Today’s show features a few originals performed by his Texas Playboys but most will be versions performed by contemporary artists who are honoring and keeping Wills’ musical legacy alive.

Hi Nancy,
I enjoyed visiting with you today on "Cowboy Tracks"
I wanted to set the record straight. During your show, I made a comment about recently deceased, Doris Day. In fact, Doris Day starred in "Calamity Jane" not "Annie Oakley"
Sorry, my mistake... Really love your show... Keep keepin' on with the great tracks!
Oh, BTW... John Fremont's guide and messenger was Kit Carson.

I am really excited about your interview with Dale's former long time manager (Dick Baxter).  Can't wait to hear his stories of the good ole days with Roy and Dale!

Right now I'm listening to your Western Swing show and it's too wonderful, it's beyond super. It's even really swell. Thank you for this Swing salute. More Swing and more...

Wow, thank you! This was the first time I've done an all-western swing show. Now, I'm encouraged to do more!

Listened to this varied Cowboy time last Friday. There was Cowboy poetry, music, definitions of terms...yes, so much time has pasted we need to know what used to be common words that relate to Cowboy and The West. Tune in for a good time.
