Big City Cowgirl

There’s something undeniably charming about Big City Cowgirl and this song. Perhaps the charm comes from hearing some real country music for once – a fiddle and lyrics that cut to the core.

“Rode Off Into The Sunset (That Night)”, is like a postcard from the past; a traditional country theme set to a traditional country melody. Big City Cowgirl sings in a very conversational way with a clear, simple style that I find to be very attractive and real, kind of like talking to the girl next door.

This track is amazingly refreshing, oddly enough from an “older sound of music”. With all the junk out there they call country; the track obviously says they need to take a listen to this gem. There is an a lot of new artists today that claim to be country but have no country soul, trust me Big City Cowgirl has a country soul with a wild side.

I remember a time when the music ran its business out of Nashville, now the business runs the music. Country became pop, pop became urban, urban became crossover and somewhere along the line, the fine art of making pure and simple music got lost.
