Playin' Cowboy Music
"Playin' Cowboy Music" is the YAMPA VALLEY BOYS fifth CD recording released in August 2008. The CD contains 14 tracks ranging from traditional western/cowboy songs, western swing tunes, old time banjo instrumentals, to modern western songs written by such artists as Mike Fleming of New West, and Brenn Hill. Five of the tracks are written by Steve Jones including the haunting "Last Campfire" and a classic cowboy trail story, "That Irish Kid". The Yampa Valley Boys are John Fisher and Steve Jones, from the northwest Colorado town of Steamboat Springs. (Listen to "Colorado Swing" to get our full bio in rhyme and music!). We've been "Playin' Cowboy Music" together for over 8 years and 1200 performances. With a total of 5 CD's together, and numerous awards, including finalist for the 2007 Western Music Association "Crescendo" Award, the Boys are doing their best to keep Cowboy music alive and kicking.

What people are saying about "Playin' Cowboy Music": The Boys have done it again! \'Playin\' Cowboy Music\' is among my favorites this year, and it\'s a pleasure to add it to our playlists on The Western Music Channel.\' George Fair, President/Director of Programming, Heartland Public Radio. The Yampa Valley Boys\' experience is an authentic pickin\' & grinin\' fest. Their string of CD\'s are good rides with a certain neighborly nostalgic quality and this one will slip in confortably into an adjoining stall with them!
