"We feel strongly about continuing to present the classic songs of the West that folks have come to expect from us. We also want to share our own thoughts and feelings about what the West means to us. That's why we included a selection of both classic and original songs on this album," says Tumbleweed Rob of The Tumbling Tumbleweeds, "We also wanted to go for a more lavish sound on this album and we are thrilled to have some of our friends in the Western Music world join us on this recording to add to our sound."
The result of these collaborations has produced dynamic tracks such as, the swing tune, The Mighty Santa Fe, featuring Western Music pal Ric Steinke of Open Range on Steel Guitar, Sleepin on a Mountain featuring Grammy Consideration, Harmonicowboy Gary Allegretto on Harmonica, California, a rollicking ranchera styled homage to the groups home state featuring Conjunto Norteno Accordion Player, Otono Lujan of Los Pochos and a Medley of swing classics, Youre Getting Tired of Me and You Waited Too Long connected with an original tune written by The Tumbling Tumbleweeds called, So Now Youve Gone, making up the Lost Love Medley featuring Ric Steinke once more on Steel Guitar.
