Cowboy Cool Royal Wade Kimes, Wonderment Records, 2004.

royal-wade-kimesSomewhere between Pop Country and Cowboy Western you’ll find the music of Royal Wade Kimes, a Nashville pro whose sound is soulful, sexy and addictive.

Whether he’s singing about truckers, cowboys or the Civil War, you’ll want to believe every single word. Cowboy Cool, with its outstanding backup on lead guitar, harmonica and drums, soothes like firewater—it gives a man courage while bringing tears to his eyes. Kimes’ Bluesy original, Track #5 “Feelin’ Stud,” is too hot to handle!  Give me the bumper sticker and T-shirt!—Corinne Brown
