Album Notes
Jim Jones tells it like it was, is and will be in the great American West. Native Texan transplanted to New Mexico, student of the West, he lives, sings and writes about cowboys, horses, cattle rustlers and such but he knows there's much more to the story. How the train and barbed wire reflected the "new technology" that changed the West, how critical our sources of water are for survival. He sees the humor in a cowboy's fruitless search for a decent cup of "cowboy coffee" in town and he knows the poignancy of an old hand with Alzheimer's riding down the "lost canyons in his mind.' He knows what is really important as we live our lives "on borrowed time." Don't let your pre-conceived notions of what "Western Music" is (this is not Gene Autry, NOT that there's anything wrong with that!) stand in the way of your giving a listen to these stories that ring true no matter where you live and whether or not you know which side of a horse to mount up on. This is a primarily acoustic album that owes as much to Paul Simon and the Beatles as it does to the Sons of the Pioneers. In addition to being an award-winning singer/songwriter, Jim is also an award-winning Western novelist. When it gets right down to it, he's a story-teller: nothing more and nothing less.

Our Favorite Western Music/Best of the West- True West Magazine 1/13
"Borrowed Time," the latest offering from 2008 Academy of Western Artists Male Vocalist of the Year, Jim Jones, displays some of the most intriguing Western tales you'll find anywhere. And no one sings them like Jim Jones. A good Western movie script could be written from any one of the songs on this album.
