Royal Wade Kimes Puts the Western Back in Country Music

Whether it''s his wide-brimmed hat or the six-shooter strapped to his leg, it''s clear "this ol'' boy''s got it!" says legendary Country artist Eddy Arnold.

Born in the deep South and descended from a band of bank-robbing outlaws, Royal Wade Kimes embodies the spirit of the American cowboy. At age 14, with stars in his eyes and heroes like Roy Rogers, Gene Autry and John Wayne, Kimes began writing songs glorifying the Old West and traditional cowboy ethics.

In keeping with the "cowboy code," Kimes used hard work, dedication to his music and more than a little sweat to land where he is today. Doing everything from wrangling horses for Loretta Lynn to pounding out railroad ties, Kimes worked his way to Nashville and landed in the office of Eddy Arnold who recognized Kimes'' immense talent and got him his start.

His hard work and perseverance have helped make him one of the industry''s most gifted singer/songwriters. Having penned hits for Garth Brooks, Diamond Rio and Gene Watson, there are real stories to Kimes'' songs.

Kimes first album, Another Man''s Sky (Asylum), produced a top-20 hit with "Courage of Daniel." For his second effort, Hangin'' Around the Moon (Wonderment Records), Kimes loaded up his car, hit the road and took his music straight to his fans, often selling CDs right out of his trunk. His hard work paid off again as the album soared to #1 on the World Major/INDIE chart. The album also won the coveted Will Rogers Masters Award and was voted Album of the Year by the Academy of Western Artists. In 2003 the AWA honored Kimes with 12 nominations including Entertainer of the Year.

His most recent release, A Dyin'' Breed (Wonderment Records), is "a straight-shootin'', no gimmicks, Country album that celebrates traditional cowboy values," says Cowboys and Indians magazine. Boasting contributing talent from the likes of Sheb Wooley (aka Ben Coulter) and Leslie Easterbrook, the album had everyone talking, from Country Weekly and American Cowboy magazines to the Outdoor Channel and Kansas City''s Fox 4 TV. Kimes'' duet with Garth Brooks, "Night Birds," proved hugely popular at home and abroad, climbing all the way to #1 on the E.M.S. European chart.

Kimes'' fourth album, Cowboy Cool, will be released May 18. Spanning 12 tracks, Kimes lays down a cool sound and shares lively tales of bull riders, greenhorns, red-blooded Americans and guys who keep fighting for what they believe in and never give up. The first radio single covers Bob Dylan''s seminal work, "Knockin'' on Heaven''s Door." Kimes says, "It''s the best dang Cowboy song of our time, it just hasn''t been made into a country song until now."

Kimes'' rendition of "Knockin'' on Heaven''s Door" will hit radio this April and Cowboy Cool will be available in retail and media outlets across the U.S. and abroad this May.
