10 HIDALGO COUNTY HERALD FRIDAY, JUNE20, 2014 Western musician Keeter Stuart to perform at AFP June 21-22 Courtesy submission Keeter Stuart comes by his skill at singing and writing songs naturally; it's in his blood. His great-uncle, Stan Jones, was one of the finest songwriters of West- ern music to ever ride down the trail. Jones' most popular song, "Ghost Riders in the Sky", became one of the most enduring and memorable American ballads of all time. Leg- end has it that Jones was in- spired to write "Ghost Riders" af- ter watching a monsoon thun- derstorm over the Slaughter Ranch near Douglas, right here in Cochise County. Committed to playing his uncle's songs at every perfor- mance, Stuart is also a songwriter in his own right. Carol Ander- son, DJ and host of host of "Ruby's Roadhouse" on KXCI 91.3 FM - Tucson, says, "If you listen closely, the music of Keeter Stuart will conjure up more than a few spirits. Though the "wild" is mostly gone from our western states, what has remained and what feeds our longing for adven- ture are the stories, the legends, and the songs. Gratefully we also have modern troubadours like Keeter Stuart to give them voice" Stuart's latest CD, "Ghost Riders, Searchers & Cowpokes," features such Stan Jones classics as "Cot- tonwood Tree," "Cowpoke," "Hannah Lee," "The Searchers," Keeter Stuart and, of course, "Ghost Riders" Says Darrel Arnold, Publisher/ Editor of Cowboy Magazine, "Stuart has a great baritone voice and a relaxed, comfortable style, and he does a fantastic job of de- livering these songs. On a scale of one to ten, the 'wow' factor here is about twelve. This one has in- stantly been added to our stack of all-time favorite CD's."
