Per the official press release –
Swift Current, Saskatchewan – Colter Wall fans have long adored the lonesome sound of his live versions of “Cowpoke,” the Stan Jones classic cowboy tune. The big sky sound continues with Wall’s full-band studio version of “Cowpoke” off of his upcoming, self-produced album, Western Swing & Waltzes and Other Punchy Songs. Harmonica, a fitting addition to the classic timbre of Wall’s iconic voice, leads the song into a hopeful territory, while notes of pedal steel guitar and mandolin provide a sentimental grace. Listed by the Western Writers of America as one of the best Western songs of all time, “Cowpoke” is a fitting tune for Wall, and the release of his version will ensure that the classic song will stick around. Fans can hear “Cowpoke” on all digital service providers or at this link.
In addition to the premiere of “Cowpoke,” Wall just released a surprise live performance video as part of a new series he calls “The Bunkhouse Sessions.” The first song, “I Ride an Old Paint/Leavin’ Cheyenne” is a tease and nod to his much anticipated upcoming album. Shot in a bunkhouse on the ranch of Wall’s friend and actor, Beau Smith, the video features the songwriter seated by a bedroll and coffee maker just in front of Ray McGuffin and Tom Ryan paintings which hang on the plywood interior wall of the bunkhouse. Wall listed this video as “Episode 1” on his social media accounts, promising more to come from the Western singer and his label, La Honda Records. Watch Episode 1 of The Bunkhouse Sessions here.
