Randy Huston Appreciates Garth’s Comment on Western Songs

Randy Huston Appreciates Garth’s Comment on Western Songs

Sixteen years ago Garth Brooks hit the country charts for the first time with his ode to rodeo cowboy and singer Chris LeDoux, “Too Young (To Feel This Damn Old.)” Garth says he will always include at least one western song on his albums because of the support he’s had from “the workin’ men and women in the cowboy hats that supported us and continue to support us.”

Cowboy and western singer Randy Huston, who met Brooks when he lived in Nashville and ran a publishing company out of Javelina Studio, says he is not surprised to hear what the singer has to say about western music.

“I had the chance to visit with Garth a few times when I was in Nashville, and it doesn’t surprise me to hear that he would make this statement,” Huston says. “He and I were both friends with Chris LeDoux, a guy who was absolutely a top notch person. I knew that Garth admires and values cowboys and the cowboy lifestyle, and I appreciated that. Not many folks who sing and perform mainstream music have much of a connection to the real cowboy, so whenever someone does, it impresses those of us that are still living the cowboy life.”

Huston had several opportunities to visit with Brooks in Nashville, and not surprising, the conversation always came around to LeDoux.

“I can’t remember where we ran in to each other, I think once was at a Gold album party for Chris, and another time at Javelina studio in Nashville. I do remember that each time I visited with him, the conversation would end up gravitating toward Chris, and how we appreciated having him as a friend.”

While the cowboy is a symbol recognized universally as American, Huston says there are people who don’t actually think there are cowboys who live and work the land in many parts of the U.S. today, just as their predecessors did more than 100 years ago.

“People don’t realize that the cowboy is alive and well, but we are still out there living the cowboy lifestyle,” Huston points out. “To borrow the title from a song written by Ed Bruce, Donnie Blanz, and Judith Bruce that Chris cut, ‘You Just Can’t See Him from the Road.’

“Those of us plying the cowboy trade day in and day out appreciate someone of Garth’s prominence giving us a nod.”

Garth’s new CD, “Man Against the Machine,” includes two western songs, “Rodeo and Juliet” and “Cowboys Forever.” Garth is nominated in the Academy of Country Music’s Entertainer of the Year award, with ceremonies

Randy, who is one of the “workin’ cowboys” Garth mentions, has a ranch in Cuervo, N.M. He just released his third CD of modern western tunes, “Cowboys & Girls,” which features his daughter Hannah.

This Saturday, April 18, Randy and Hannah will receive the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum’s Outstanding Traditional Western Album award for their CD “Cowboys & Girls.”  In addition, Hannah will receive the New Horizon Award during the ceremonies, which will take place in Oklahoma City.
