Don Edwards is often compared to Marty Robbins. No surprises here, as both are great singers of Western music. Robbins was, and continues to be, one of Don’s biggest influences. While performing, Edwards will often sing a song either written by or associated with Robbins, and afterwards, fans will ask if there is a recording with Don’s version of those songs.

The National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum is one of the world’s largest museums of Western heritage and art. Believing that the museum should have a national influence beyond that of the exhibit hall, the Board of Directors began the Western Heritage Award program in 1960 to encourage others to tell the great stories of the West, with accuracy and highest artistic quality. The Western Heritage Awards’ “Wrangler” trophies are bronze replicas of a Charles M. Russell sculpture. This magnificent art, more than 13” tall on its polished wood base is awarded to the winning entries in specified categories of Western literature, music, film and television during the annual awards ceremonies. Past winners include such distinguished writers, actors, producers and directors as John Wayne, Clint Eastwood, John Ford, James Stewart, James R. Webb, Thomas Berger, J. Frank Dobie, Elmer Bernstein (music), Elliott Silverstein, Sidney Pollack, Robert Redford, Natachee Scott Momaday, Angie Debo, Louis L’Amour, Tom Selleck, Sam Elliott and others too numerous to list.

That No Quit Attitude


waddie mitchell


The organizers of the Olympic Winter Games in Salt Lake City needed an expert to write a piece describing the West, its people, spirit, and connection to the steadfastness and dedication of hopeful athletes. They didn’t hire an English professor - they hired a Cowboy. That No Quit Attitude was featured in the ceremonies and program of the Olympic Winter Games. This album has fourteen poems, thoughtful memories and humorous studies on human and animal nature. In between each track is a Waddie-ism; short observations and dry quips that roll from Mitchell’s mind like tumbleweeds across a Nevada highway. Special guests include Don Edwards, Rich O’Brien and the Sons of the San Joaquin.

2013 Traditional Composition of the Year National Cowboy Museum, Oklahoma City

This is an important piece of history which I hope will continue for decades to come.” - Don Edwards “With its early 20th century rustic atmosphere, movie memorabilia, and vintage stringed instruments, the feeling of intimacy warms the heart and gives you an experience you will never forget. Joe and Lon and yours truly, Jack Hannah, simply love it.” - Sons of the San Joaquin “We love recording our old time music in this railroad yard warehouse: it is a similar setting to the early Gennett 78 RPM recording days in Richmond, Indiana.” - Norman Blake

Wood, Wire & Words Norman Blake

Back Home In Sulphur Springs norman & nancy blake


Blake 4.75 inches Fold to Bleed

Wood, Wire & Words The first recording of original Blake songs in over 30 years by America’s Old Time Country Musician. Two rags, one march, and eight old time songs recently written, composed, and performed by Norman Blake on guitar. Includes a selection written and performed with Nancy Blake.

Norman & Nancy Blake return to the old railroad warehouse by the tracks in Colorado Springs. In more recent years, the 1887 Santa Fe Railroad building has become the home of Western Jubilee Recording Company where the Blakes have recorded on several occasions. Here, the Blakes effortlessly and eloquently recorded the 14 songs herein. In doing so, they make a full circle to Norman’s 1972 release, Home in Sulphur Springs.

“[Wood, Wire & Words is]… a very welcome and engaging return…” -The Wall Street Journal

“Musically, Back Home In Sulphur Springs is another revelation of the Blake’s acoustic style, at once relaxed and simple and intricate and sophisticated. Norman plays guitar, dobro, fiddle and mandolin. Nancy plays guitar, cello and mandolin (listen for her nimble rendition of the Star Spangled Banner). Together they sing in an harmonic convergence of two phonemes paired in the spirit. And this recording demonstrates once again why they are national treasures.”

Featured on NPR’s Fresh Air with Terry Gross – March 19, 2015

“This is something that Blake fans have been hoping for for years, and it’s one they won’t want to miss.” – Bluegrass Today

Wylie & the Wild West

“Bucking Horse Moon is a collection of tunes about cowboys, horses, rodeo, love and faith. It’s a blessing to have made music for over two decades and several albums with the Wild West. The only reason we continue to play, write and yodel is that we have a great bunch of wonderful fans that make it all worthwhile. Thank you for giving us a reason to sing. May you have as much fun listening to these 14 songs as we had creating them!” – Wylie Gustafson Produced by John Carter Cash

Hooves of the Horses is Wylie & The Wild West’s musical tribute to the Horse. The sixteen tracks feature both old favorites like Bob Nolan’s Happy Rovin’ Cowboy, Everyday by Buddy Holly, a Johnny Cash classic, Luther Played the Boogie and Tom Russell’s Western classic, The Sky Above, the Mud Below, to some great Wylie Gustafson originals, including Manolito, Mmm…Montana and Rockabye Lullaby. Along with noted cowboy poets Paul Zarzyski and Joel Nelson, Wylie has created two original Western classics – Saddle Broncs and Sagebrush and Equus Caballus.

Be Ready Boys norman blake & rich o’brien

Western Jubilee is proud to bring you Be Ready Boys, Volume One of our Appalachia to Abilene series that explores the roots of traditional music and its subsequent journey West. Grammy winner Norman Blake and Western Swing Hall of Famer Rich O’Brien blend their unique styles in this new collection of instrumental and old-timey country songs.


Seasons, Roads, & Faces

Southwestern Souvenirs

A virtuoso performance from the man Acoustic Guitar Magazine calls “A Rising Star” and “the house guitarist for the cowboy music revival.” Western music fans have long recognized O’Brien as the Charlie Russell of Western guitar. Don Edwards says “One of the most brilliant and downright enjoyable instrumental recordings of this century.” Seasons, Roads & Faces features not only O’Brien’s virtuosity, but also the talents of long time friends from the Texas music scene. Rich has now received more Wrangler awards from the Cowboy Hall of Fame than anyone in any category!

Southwestern Souvenirs is pure Rich O’Brien, nine classic O’Brien instrumentals and three vocal tracks. This wonderful recording represents O’Brien’s long admiration of the sounds that have been a part of Western music since the explorers, settlers, gold rushers and cowboys ventured into the Southwest. Legendary songwriter and late-great Country Music Hall of Famer Cindy Walker called him “A full blooded guitar man!” Two of Cindy’s songs are featured on this release including Rose of Mexico, a song found on the flip side of Al Dexter’s 1948 hit, Pistol Packin’ Mama. Also included is the theme to Gunsmoke with the original lyrics sung by Don Edwards.

Measure of a Man

The Drover Road

Wagon Tracks

The Wolking family from Westcliffe, Colorado presents songs of mountains and range. String band music with powerful vocals and a Western attitude.

The Drover Road is much more than just the cattle trail to Donaghadee in Ireland, to Amulree, Falkirk and Crieff in Scotland: more than the Chisholm or Goodnight Loving Trail. The Drover Road is David Wilkie and Cowboy Celtic’s exploration into the Celtic origins of Cowboy Music. Featuring a 16 page booklet, this Canadian group offers a wonderful assortment of Reels and Ballads.

Poet Laureate of Texas, Red Steagall has been carrying on the cowboy music tradition for many years. A thematic collection of twelve cuts, Steagall sings the tales of an immigrant’s journey across the young frontier. A noted songwriter, Red has been honored for his original music as a multiple recipient of the Western Heritage Wrangler Award. In addition, Red Steagall was inducted into the Hall of Great Westerners and received Western music’s top honor for Wagon Tracks, as Outstanding Traditional Western Recording. Wagon Tracks features the Boys in the Bunkhouse, who WJRC fans all know and love including Tom Morrell, Mark Abbott and producer Rich O’Brien.

Sons and Brothers

“Seldom does such a talented group get presented to the public. Likewise, seldom does one family possess such a talent, work ethic, faith and determination as do the Wolkings, who are the Sons and Brothers.” - Waddie Mitchell

Cowboy Nation is more than a name. It’s a destination that Los Angeles based Chip and Tony Kinman have been riding towards since entering the music scene over thirty years ago. As expunk rockers who grew up with Western music, the Kinmans’ trail has wound through various musical landscapes but always with a common thread, an independent and strong vision of what their music is about. They first achieved notoriety as Rank and File and their critically acclaimed alt-country recording Sundown. Now they’ve moved further West, with A Journey Out Of Time.
