Buck Howdy lassos melody, rhythm, and creative storytelling, creating a passel of tasty treats from the sweetly singable ‘S’mores’ to the hilarious ‘Baked Beans.’
San Diego (PRWEB) October 6, 2005 -–
Buck Howdy saddles up for another fun corral full of cowboy tunes for the whole family. His newest release, GIDDYUP!, featuring an engaging mix of country, bluegrass and Western style tunes, will be available October 25th from Prairie Dog Entertainment. The new CD features 7 original Buck Howdy songs, and 7 other tracks appealing to kids of all ages. Guest stars Trout Fishing in America and Laurie Berkner join for three of the sing-alongs.
Buck Howdy songs are sure to have everybody rootin’ and tootin’ around the campfire, dinner table, or even on those long holiday road trips ahead. Like his first family CD, Skidaddle!, Giddyup! features Buck’s warm vocals, laid over some of the best cowboy music around. XM Satellite Radio calls him “The next Roy Rogers,” and his music stands firmly in the great American tradition so well trail-blazed by Roy, Gene Autry and Tex Ritter.
Buck’s songs invite listeners to gallop along with cowboys traversing the Old West: “Ride, Cowboy Ride,” “Pecos Bill,” and “Happy Trails.” Some of the songs evoke the joys of the great outdoors, like “Hayride.” At least one tune pokes fun at the downside of nature – “My Favorite Kind of Bugs.” By the last track, listeners will want to replay these tunes all over again.
The School Library Journal recently said of GIDDYUP! “Buck Howdy lassos melody, rhythm, and creative storytelling, creating a passel of tasty treats from the sweetly singable ‘S’mores’ to the hilarious ‘Baked Beans.’”
Buck says his inspiration comes from his own childhood on a cattle ranch in southern Oregon and his current life on a farm in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, where he and Mrs. Howdy are raising two children - and 40,000 turkeys! He says that cowboy music is uniquely appealing to all ages. “Western music is an interesting blend of American music traditions, with a little bit of bluegrass, folk, gospel music mixed in. I love how the cowboy stories unfold, and how there’s always something to tickle your funny bone.”
