If you're ever in or around Oakdale, California, there are several attractions that we invite you to see:
Oakdale Cowboy Museum - The museum that celebrates and honors "The Cowboy Capital of the World".
Oakdale Rodeo - The second weekend in April. It might be 50 and raining or 90 and sunny, but it'll be western.
Western Folklife Center - A bit further away from us, the Western Folklife Center is in Elko, NV. Check out their store and pick out a poetry or music CD or three. We might suggest poetry by Randy Rieman or Joel Nelson. If you find yourself passing through Elko on I-80, stop in for a visit, they have some great displays.
We mostly listen to music that gets you off the pavement. The folks will take you down dirt roads and get you on horseback:
Ranch and Reata - Streaming internet radio, the kind of mix you'd likely pick.
Dave Stamey - Award winning western singer and genuine nice guy.
RW Hampton - Another award winning nice guy and can sing them all.
Richard Elloyan - The biggest musical secret in Nevada.
Kandace Kalona - A great voice and talent, she writes them too.
Adrian - She wrote them and can sure enough sing them too. Just starting out, and she is a good one.
Wylie and the Wild West - He does the "Yahoo yodel" for their ads, but can sure sing a ballad, rockabilly, cowboy rock and roll, make you laugh or reflect, and keep you dancing all night at a live show.
Clear Out West - You'll like these Nelson boys - Some history, a little horseshoeing lore, some music and poetry, and a lot of laughs.
