Jason Petty's newest creation is called "The Swinging Cowboys" and is a tribute to the music of the Great American West. This trip down memory lane consists of songs from Stephen Foster to the Singing Cowboys to Western Swing. An authentic western set along with some of the best musicians in the USA will make for an unforgettable night. Jason narrates the history of the early pioneers who brought the popular songs of the day westward with them. The first cowboys in the west used these songs to help soothe the herds of cattle and keep them from stampeding. The music became a staple of early saloons and was eventually recorded by the first stars of the silver screen such as Gene Autry and Roy Rogers. Around the same time as the singing cowboy craze came another American original...Western Swing music. Band leaders such as Bob Wills and Spade Cooley turned western swing into America's dance music in the 1930's and 40's with such hits as 'San Antonio Rose' and 'Shame, Shame On You', among many others. Some of the songs included in this show are: Home On The Range, Streets Of Laredo, Cattle Call, Don't Fence Me In, Back In The Saddle, Take Me Back To Tulsa and many, many more. It will bring back many memories for listeners of all ages. It's a good, fun western-themed evening of music, stories and humor for the entire family. If you've ever seen one of Jason's other shows, you know you won't be disappointed. There will plenty of chances to sing along with Jason and whole gang as they take you back in time to the Great American West in "The Swinging Cowboys."
