Album Notes
The King of Kids Cowboy Music - a FAMILY FAVORITE!

Cowboy crooner Buck Howdy is the nexus of Roy Rogers, Will Rogers and Mr. Rogers . . . and whether you refer to his guitar pickin' and singin' as cowboy, country, western, folk, family or children's music, Buck is the most innovative recording artist to mosey on down the trail in ages! It's no wonder that GIDDYUP was recently honored by the AMERICAN LIBRARY ASSOCIATION as one of the TOP 4 kids' music cds of 2006.

Buck's music videos are seen regularly on Nickelodeon's Noggin Network and have won numerous Emmy Awards.

Howdy has performed at the GRAND OLE OPRY and four times at the WHITE HOUSE as well as in hundreds of concerts at state fairs, performing arts centers and schools from coast to coast.

WARNING: Parents, do not let your kids take this CD to their rooms!
WARNING: Parents, do not let your kids take this CD to their rooms to play -- you will miss some of the best dang music that's come down the pike in awhile!   Okay, the cover has "kids music" all over it and nobody 
going by the surname "Howdy" expects to be taken seriously in "mainstream music", so . . . well, not so fast with the assumptions.  Yes, the songs ARE slanted toward youngsters, but they are intelligently written and blatantly funny for the most part,  but not without considerable "real world" substance. "Big Bad John"  is a time-honored story about self-sacrifice, and "Almost Home" puts a spiritual spin on spiritual values -- this is a viable learning opportunity for kids. Though you can play tracks and see videos on Buck's website, BUY THE CD! This is the calibre of material that deserves to continue, which can only happen as it sustains itself.

WHAT FUN! The kids will love it and so will you (I've been humming Baa, Neigh,
Great for all ages. Catchy tunes and easy lyrics for the younger kids. Good fun! Don't be surprised if you find yourself singing and humming some of these songs (even when the kids aren't around)! My favorite song is Baa, Neigh, Cock-a-Doodle-Doo!

This is what we all need to be listening to
We are new fans of Buck Howdy since we saw him at Jamarama Live in Houston TX. Now we listen to Giddyup at our children's request during mealtimes, playtimes, and in the car. Every kid needs a cowboy hero and Buck Howdy is "it" for my kids. You can't go wrong with this CD.

Rowdy and hilarious cowboy fun for kids and families
Buck Howdy is kind of like your big brother’s wisecracking friend or your favorite “fun” uncle -- you know, the one with the water-squirting ring and the whoopee cushion. He performs perfectly authentic cowboy music with kid-friendly lyrics, delivered with a toothy grin and a mischievous wink. High points are a hoedown-style Hokey Pokey (with some killer banjo, mandolin, and fiddle playing involved), “Baked Beans” (a song that discusses the sad and smelly consequences of eating nothing but you-know-what), and “My Favorite Kind of Bugs” (dead ones, it turns out). He reveals a tender side with beautifully understated versions of “This Little Light of Mine” and “Almost Home” -- without ever getting syrupy. A lovely performance of “Happy Trails,” sung as duet with Laurie Berkner, gives Roy Rogers and Dale Evans a run for their money.
A combination of originals and cover tunes, GIDDYUP! is an engaging, funny, and musically authentic collection of songs-without-attitude. Buck Howdy isn’t hitting you over the head with educational value or obtuse sincerity. He’s having fun and wants kids to join in, and if in the process they end up laughing about flatulence, singing about dead bugs, or even adding a few new words to their vocabularies, it’s no skin off his nose. He’s just happy to be there.


My son loves this cd. He would have it playing all day long and all night long if I would let him. It is up beat and fun! It is a great cd for children!

14 knee-slappingly funny and boot-kickingly upbeat songs!
As a bonafide city slicker, I feel a little funny listening to music that’s so purely country-and-western that I start imagining tumbleweeds and cattle occupying my backyard. But, doggone it, this CD is about as irresistible as hot coffee on a cold Colorado morning (and a perfect reason to try out my lame attempt at frontier dialect).

Giddyup! is the second album from Buck Howdy, a rootin’-tootin’ 20-year veteran of the children’s music world. Buck’s the real deal, having grown up on a ranch in Oregon and now living on a farm in Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, and his music has all the grit and twang of the finest productions out of Nashville.

But what folks will love better than biscuits right out of the oven are the 14 knee-slappingly funny and boot-kickingly upbeat songs, many of them Buck Howdy originals. Kids, from preschool on up, will toe-tap and laugh to “Baa, Neigh, Cock-a-Doodle-Doo” and “My Favorite Kind of Bugs.” My eldest son cannot stop singing – and giggling – over “Baked Beans” (an ode to a feller who only eats the sound and smell inducing legumes). Guest stars include Laurie Berkner, on the Dale Evans-Roy Rogers classic “Happy Trails,” and Trout Fishing in America, on “S’Mores” and the title track.

Children’s music certainly has its share of great pop- and rock-oriented performers, so this old-fashioned Gene Autry-meets-Dr. Demento (remember him?) fills a long-dormant niche. And if ya can’t get enough of Buck on this album, check out his playful “Cow Pie Radio” show on XM Satellite Radio.
