This episode features the talents of some great MWSD callers singing "cowboy songs".  No dancing this episode, instead callers Ernie Kinney, Bronc Wise, Tom Perry, and Joe Johnston - the Hi Hat Pioneers - are featured.

 

These callers performed live at many square dance specials and festivals.  This was their first album released in 1984.  Worth noting, this album was recorded before the computerized tuning that every singer uses today.  This was pure talent.
