ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
We are what you might call a contemporary western or cowboy band. Although we love that old "Tumblin' Tumbleweed" and "Back in the Saddle Again" stuff, we prefer a more upbeat sound. You won't hear us on the regular country stations, because we just aren't commercial enough. We don't sing about losing the truck the trailer and the dog in the divorce. We sing about being on horseback, how life is like in the old west, simple things that tell a story. We sing a lot of ballads and have a couple of poems, but most of all we're just a bunch of regular country folks.

We evolved from an occasional backyard get-together, to what you hear on the first album, released in February of 2001, titled "Hangin' from the Conchos" and now on the second album, titled Tied Behind the Cantle". Most of us live in the small farming community of Hooper, Utah, perched on the flatlands, adjacent to the Great Salt Lake, in Northern Utah.

Every member of this group has lived and loved the ranch lifestyle, even though they have had to let go of the old ways and the laid back business of cows, horses, haying and irrigating in the hot sun.

"Heaven knows we never thought we would ever go into a studio and record an album, it just happened", laughs Cindy Argyle, little blonde wife of bass player, Kurt "Snoose" Argyle. "Snoose", born and raised on the family ranch in Randolph, Utah, looks the part of every long legged, red mustachioed cowboy you ever read about in a Louis L'Amore western novel. Cindy sings and plays percussion. She loved visiting grandpa, in Rock Springs, and doing cowboy things with him. Both of them enjoy the cowboy life, and helping out, while visiting Snoose's brother that happens to be a range rider, above Evanston, Wyoming.

Brian Arnold, born 100 years too late, gifted with the ability to pen a poem or a song which paints a picture so real, you can almost smell the bacon or hear the horses whinny, sings lead vocals. He writes most of the original material, and lends body to the songs on the album with good solid rhythm guitar work. He's a good cowboy, looks the part, and works cattle like he was born to.

Roy Glover, the old timer in the group, raised on a ranch in South Texas, still enjoys going on an occasional cattle drive and reliving his boyhood years of ridin', ropin' and wrestlin' those spunky young bovine critters. He is the great talent of the group, lending his fine lead guitar work along with bass and baritone vocal harmonies. He made his first $10, playing guitar, at 8 years old, (of course, that was before Texas was a state).

And, let's not forget the newest members of our band, Laurie Morgan and Bud Brown. Laurie grew up with farm animals, around dairy cows and had her own horse for as long as she can remember. She was born to sing and music has always been a part of her life. Her father sang with the Utah famous Four R's and she sang with him many a time in church and family gatherings.

Bud has been a horseman all of his life. He enjoys the horses that he and his wife own and ride, as well as the cattle drives and the simple cowboy life, that it brings. Bud plays drums for the Saddlestrings, when we perform for dances and weddings and such, for that full band sound, but it is a little tough to bring them along to the festivals. Unfortunately, these two talented individuals were not members of the Saddlestrings when we recorded this first album, but we fixed that with the new one.

Our heartfelt thanks to all, for having faith in us and for the encouragement. Even though we are common folks, taking each day as they come, we are dedicated to doing what we can to preserve and promote the ways of the old west through our music and poetry. We hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we enjoy making it.

I enjoyed your back-to-the range type of music.
A great combination of artists and music that stimuate your imagination. If you have ever traveled in the West, you can visualize what they are singing about.

Fun, easy listening country.
It reminded me of listening to Jim Reeves, Eddy Arnold, and old time country artists and groups with my dad. Wonderful memories, great music, and great voices.

our favorite music ever
we bought all their CD's 10 days ago and have listened to nothing else ever since. this is what country music should be: real country, great ballads, well-crafted messages, plus fun and humor; from folks who've lived in the life they sing about. Every singer in the group has a great voice, and the group meshes perfectly. The CD for sale here has fantastic variety, some good humor and memorable poetry. Once you buy and hear this one you will want all their CD's, the newest of which has two songs ( "Jornada del Muerto" and "Somewhere in the Middle of Wyoming") that should be on the charts if they got some wider circulation.

This is a great CD for fans of western music!!!!
This is a great CD. It's easy to listen to and the music is mellow compared to todays's so-called "country music". I would call it "listening music" as the words mean something.
