Show #156 – Cowboys!

We typically go into each show asking each other if we have a theme for tonight.  Usually, the answer is nope.  Sometimes, there are very obvious themes we must address:  Buck Owens’ birthday, Merle Haggard’s birthday, Gram Parson’s birthday…  But most of the time, no theme.  On more than one occasion, we play a song and that one song gets us immediately into theme mode.  Tonight it took Dale Watson’s “Mamas Don’t Let Your Cowboys Grow Up To Be Babies” that set us on the path of a “cowboy” theme.  Lots of cowboy songs.  We had fun.  Yippe Kai Yay!
