Album Notes
Jesse took his first paying cowboy job for the summer of his 14th year. In his twenties he rodeoed as a saddle bronc rider while running cattle with his father and brother on the land homesteaded by his grandfather in 1905. He has earned his living cowboying for outfits in California, Wyoming, and Montana; where he also served as a Deputy State Brand Inspector.From a young age Jesse had a love for music equal to his love for horses,cowboying, and the west. Over time this passion for music has grown into songwriting that reflects the tradition and values of the contemporary west; as seen through the eyes of a working cowboy. Jesse has shared his perspective of the cowboy life, as a performer, at gatherings and cowboy events in Elko, NV; Alpine,TX; Sante Fe,NM; and The National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City, OK. "Take note: Jesse Ballantyne's Cowboy Serenade is an exceptionally fine album. In well crafted songs that speak of the joys and sorrows of the cowboy life Ballantyne shows his respect for those who give their all, day after day, to uphold ranching tradition...." COWBOYS AND INDIANS MAGAZINE. " Cowboy music by a Wyoming cowboy: it doesn't get much more authentic....AMERICAN COWBOY MAGAZINE.

Touches on the TRUE heart of cowboys and ranching!
This CD is excellent in all ways. Grandfather's Brand, Sunlight on Silver, and Joy In The Journey are truly delightful. Our littlest cowboy, who is 4 years old knows the words to all of the songs as does his sister, who is 7.
We are a ranching family and these songs give a true and adequate representation of the ranching and cowboy life. We have worn out our own copy and have given this CD to numerous family members and friends. Thanks for making such great music!

Trent Hendricks

Well done. It's already a favorite of ours and speaks to our souls. This is the kind of gritty realism and value that we too often are missing. Keep up the good work, real folks really like your gift, thanks for sharing. PS. we first heard your music on the "Two Weeks" colt starting video, so hat tip to Bryan Neubert and Joe Wolter for getting the word out!

Thanks for the trip
Thanks for the trip back to a simpler time before corporations, big oil and greed took over. You have a new fan in Canada from the land of the chinook!

Loving the True Cowboy
I am so glad that there are still artists singing about what a real cowboy is. I am and always will be a Chris LeDoux fan and Jesse sounds as close to Chris as I think I will ever find. Thanks Jesse. I am ordering the cd today.

Truly An Awesome CD!
I can't even begin to tell you how much we have enjoyed listening to this CD. This CD was worth every penny and more. The music is so beautiful and enjoyable to listen to. I can't even name a favorite song because they are all fantastic. We are lucky to have found your CD. We heard your music on Houlian and fell in love with it! We are hoping that you make another CD before we wear this one out! It is in the CD player everyday all day long playing! We appreciate your music and stories behind the songs. Please keep on writing and singing!
May God Bless You
