San Diego – Buck Howdy, one of family music’s most acclaimed recording artists, partners with his sidekick BB to release a brand-new collection of tunes that will have the whole family bopping along to jazzy big band sounds. Chickens, offering up a barnyard full of original and favorite Western swing-style family tunes, will be available from Prairie Dog Entertainment on September 25th, 2007 ($13.99).
BB is the rootin’ tootin’-est cowgirl around, and she has lent her bright harmonies to live Buck Howdy concerts for years. Now, BB makes the 15 songs on Chickens fly, sharing lead vocals with Buck on several tunes. The first track, “Hoe Down,” sets the high-energy Western swing style vibe for the album, and peppy tunes like the title track “Chickens” and “Shake It Off” will get every toe tapping. A full horn section (with Buck, himself on trombone!) and multiple layers of sound on every song will impress fans of American roots music. The style might be compared to Asleep at the Wheel or Bob Wills, all the while expressing Buck Howdy’s trademark zany sensibilities and BB’s sassy backtalk. If there hasn’t been enough barn raising by the end of the CD, the surprise bonus track will encourage more spontaneous arm flapping and knee slapping.
Buck Howdy is a real cowboy farmer who has performed at the Grand Ole Opry and the White House and in hundreds of concerts at schools, state fairs and performing arts centers from coast to coast. He’s been described as “the nexus of Roy Rogers, Will Rogers and Mr. Rogers, with a little Shrek thrown in for fun.” His music videos are on regular rotation with Noggin TV. Buck has two other award-winning family CDs, Skidaddle! (MCA Records) and Giddyup (Prairie Dog), both of which have earned him a place in the pantheon of artists creating hip music that appeals across the generations. Buck’s new shows are all with BB, an accomplished vocalist and actress who has appeared in several national television programs and commercials, including an Emmy award-winning CBS-TV movie with June Lockhart. She has been a part of Buck Howdy shows and recordings for a few years, and audiences respond enthusiastically when BB is on stage. Now riding the range side by side, the duo plan a busy performance schedule this fall and winter, including gigs in California, Arizona, Texas and Washington (see https://www.tradebit.com
