I made a Christmas album a couple of years ago and just put it out on my Web site. It kind of smacked of this flavor. All of the reviews said it was Western swing even when it was Christmas standards.
My favorite traditional Christmas movie that I like to watch is All Quiet on the Western Front. It's just not December without that movie in my house.
Spending two years on my uncle's ranch in Montana as a young man gave me the wisdom and the thrust to do westerns.
The next war... may well bury Western civilization forever.
