Putumayo Kids Presents Songs for Little Buckaroos - Cowboy Playground

Putumayo Kids Presents Cowboy Playground, The latest toe-tapping release from Putumayo Kids' acclaimed Playground series. 
Putumayo Kids presents Cowboy Playground

We recently received this new CD from Putumayo Kids, Cowboy Playground, set to release on May 22, 2012.  My three year old is a huge fan of cowboys. He was excited when he seen the cover of the CD. 

We had a lot of fun dancing to the songs. My son thought it was the perfect time to wear his favorite cowboy hat and pretend he was heading out West. This CD was one that the whole family enjoyed. I even caught my hubby singing along with a few of the songs. We were happy to hear some familiar songs such as Home on the Range, Happy Trails, and I'm An Old Cow Hand. 

Cowboy D

"The legend and lore of the Wild West holds a strong allure for kids and grown-ups alike. Whether it conjures up images of cowboys riding ponies across the wide-open range or singing songs by the campfire, music of the old West represents a great American tradition that holds a timeless appeal.

Putumayo Kids captures the freedom of the cowpoke’s life with Cowboy Playground, a galloping collection of songs by artists such as Western music stalwarts Riders in the Sky and Don Edwards.  Children’s cowboy music star Buck Howdy sings his funny tall tale tune “Pecos Bill” while classics including “Home on the Range” (recorded just for this release by Oregon children’s artist Victor Johnson), “Whoopie Ti Yi Yo” (performed by Canadian artist-rancher Ian Tyson) and “Don’t Fence Me In” ( jazzily arranged for Putumayo Kids by Seattle kids’ artist Johnny Bregar) are familiar even to city slickers. At the end of the day, as  millions of stars twinkle in the sky, the Dale Evans-inspired band Cowboy Envy wishes everyone “Happy Trails.""
Cowboy Playground has twelve tracks and comes with a 24-page booklet featuring archival photos from the Buffalo Bill Historical Center in Cody, Wyoming.
