Songs for Little Cowpokes {Putumayo Kids Giveaway}

Giddy-up!  Another Putumayo Kids recording is coming out on May 22nd.  This time they head out West for a collection of classic buckaroo-inspired songs called Cowboy Playground.
We've been enjoying listening to a sample cd on car trips, and even for someone like myself who's not really into the whole cowboy-thing, I really enjoyed this collection.  I was surprised how many of the tracks I knew, like Home on the Range, Happy Trails, I'm An Old Cow Hand, and Don't Fence Me In.

This album is sweetly nostalgic in a sleepy, folksy way, not because I grew up with Roy Rogers and Dale Evans, but because I somehow remember my mom or aunts singing them when I was growing up.  And I somehow remember singing these types of songs around a campfire, maybe with Girl Scouts or maybe just from some random TV show or movie I remember. :)

Either way, Cowboy Playground is sure to evoke some memories and feelings for you, as well as create some new ones for your little buckaroos.

You can listen to a few of the tracks HERE to get a taste of the album.  I think Cowboy Playground would be a perfect soundtrack for road trips and backyard dreaming under the stars!
