Cory Padilla released his album, "a Cowboy Operetta" at the opening rodeo for the PRCA on January 31 in Tuscon. The album produced by Ray Kennedy was recorded in Nashville with Chuck Mead and The Grassy Knoll Boys. The album was written as a soundtrack to the novel by JPS Brown titled "The Spirit of Dogie Long." The music was performed and produced in the style of Lefty Frizzel and Bob Wills. Truly a classic album, "A Cowboy Operetta" will be followed up later in 2015 with "The Outfit" also based on a JPS Brown novel of the same name.
