Dave Stamey – Good Dog

Dave Stamey was inducted into the Western Music Hall of Fame in 2016 after many years of winning numerous awards for his outstanding work, both as an entertainer and as a composer of Western music. Along the way, his fans found favorite songs among his vast repertoire and recently, they began asking when he was going to record one called “Good Dog,” a song he’d been doing in concerts across the country. He figured now’s the time, so this favorite of so many became the title song for this CD.

The album has 12 tracks and each song will have its own admirers. The title song is #2. The lead-off song is one of my favorites, in part because of the Western movie & TV references. The title is ”Andy Devine.” One of these days I want to hear the story of how it came about, but for now, that will have to wait. I’m happy just to listen to it and let it bring back memories.

You’ll find your own favorites in this set of music performed by Dave with his guitar and some sometimes understated but always beautiful harmony from Annie Lydon. Available from DaveStamey.com (or you can call 805-705-1329).
