R. W. Hampton’s “Shortgrass” been selected as the 2011 Western Heritage Award winner in the Outstanding Original Western Composition category. The award will be presented on April 16 at the Museum during a gala celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Awards.
“Shortgrass” is my personal favorite cut off R. W.’s “Austin to Boston” CD. There is nothing on the CD that is not good, but there is just something special about “Shortgrass.” It is a pleasure to play music like this on “The Real West from the Old West” radio show! Keep ’em comin’ R.W.! You can purchase that CD by logging onto http://rwhampton.com. You won’t be disappointed!
