Ron Wayne Atwood

1. If I Ever Fall In Love With A Honky Tonk Girl - Written by Tom T. Hall, this is the first single and is available on WHP Compilation # 29. Twin fiddles kick off this old Faron Young classic and Perley Curtis adds very tasteful Steel Guitar in just the right places.

2. Terlingu Sunset - This is a wonderful story from out of the American Wild West that tells of how a boy grew up to avenge the death of his father at the hands of an outlaw and to return a 20 year old trademark silver dollar. Like an old John Wayne movie we got the good guys & the bad guys. Written by Texas songwriter Johnny Mears who also wrote the # 1 hit for Janie Fricke "Always Have, Always Will".

3. Tennessee Whiskey & Crazy Women - Ron tells us about life in the Honky Tonks with his reindition of this Jerry Armstrong song. Jerry is well known throughout the Midwestern USA for his band "Pork" And The Havana Ducks. This has to be a crowd pleaser In the Pennsylvania Honky Tonks where Ron Wayne plays.

4. Failure Hasn''t Changed Me - Typical heart wrenching story of lost love. The musicians add all the right notes in the right places and let us hear what the singer has to say. This is a recognizable trait of producer Lonnie Ratliff''s understated style of production where he always makes the singer and the song the focal point of the record.

5. Dancing The Cowboy Way - This song exemplifies what Ron is doing with his music. You can tell that he has played for lots of dancers in his day. A tip of the hat to Oregon songwriter Billy McCoy for a well crafted tune.

6. Oh, Susanna - If you can have a "Hit" on this old Stephen Foster tune, well Ron Wayne may just have one. A very unique arrangement by Lonnie & Ron has breathed new life into a song we all remember from school days. T.J. Klay plays some great harmonica on this one.

7. Blue Gene - Songwriter Allen Green''s name is starting to appear on lots of CD''s in the last couple of years. This song reminds you of the songs they used to play at the Roller Skating Rink. nice original sound you don''t hear a lot of these days.

8. Blackjack County Chain - Red Lane wrote this story of how a Chain Gang murdered the Sheriff who was guarding convicts and beating them with a black snake whip. Kind of like the Paul Newman movie "Cool Hand Luke" put to music. This is one of many highlights on this CD.

9. A Texas Honky Tonk - I predict this is the "Sleeper" on this album.

10. I Can''t Let Her See Me Like This - Jim Carter has written one of the best Rodeo Cowboy songs you''ll ever hear and Ron''t interpretation does it justice. Not much more you can say. Some people will probably buy this CD just to get this song. As a songwriter Jim wrote "A Couple Of Wild & Crazy Guys" for Moe & Joe as well as "I Hope Heaven Has A Honky Tonk" by Tracy Lawrence.

11. Take Me As I Am Or Let Me Go - You may remember this from Ray Price and his lush productions years. Ron Wayne sings the dickens out of It and Lonnie strips it down to the basics. You get some indication of why producer Lonnie Ratliff returns to his same team of Nashville pickers who have helped establish the sound that has worked so well for Erin Hay as well as other artists he has produced. Sounds like It is working for Ron Wayne Atwood quite well also.

12. Alice Loves Ft. Worth - Ron returns to the pen of songwriter Billy McCoy for this great two step. Just an all around fun tune and you can tell the band is having as much fun playing It as Ron has singing It. Exceptional Fiddle by Jim Unger.
