We are BOLDLY ringing in 2009 -- and preparing to celebrate the 25th National Cowboy Poetry Gathering -- with the explosive new album from Wylie & the Wild West, Hang n Rattle!
Co-written with poet Paul Zarzyski and produced by John Carter Cash, this new album represents the creative energy, innovation, and tradition that is so much a part of western life. In this episode, we feature the title track Hang-n-Rattle along with Frank Desprez' classic cowboy poem Lasca featuring Paul Zarzyski. For more information about the album, visit www.wyliewebsite.com.
