Pat James – one of Arizona’s finest country music artists
I want to introduce you to Pat James. While researching articles for The Country Classics I came across a great quote by Pat James. In part he said:
I meet people every night that remind me of my folks, and, my folks’ folks… that remind me of the country and western way of life, about respect. About knowing who you are, and not being ashamed of it. Country music is a way of life to me, it’s not a fad or fashion. I am proud of it, and always will be. It can’t be discredited because my grandpa listened to it.
I couldn’t wait to sing a Bob Wills song for him on his eightieth birthday. Go back and listen to Marty Robbins, Eddy Arnold, Hank Williams, Lefty Frizzell (the list goes on and on: Buck Owens, George Jones, Merle Haggard… too many to name… Faron Young, Webb Pierce) album, and tell me they’re not true artists.
These are the people I dedicate this “C.D.” to. Y’all weren’t ashamed to wear your cowboy hats or boots to school, and I hope you’ll appreciate a guy trying to keep Country AND Western music alive.
We do appreciate it Pat, and readers of The Country Classics appreciate it too. Earlier today I wrote about the next generation of country music traditionalists as 14-year old Jade Jack released her debut CD.
Long known as one of Arizona’s finest country music artists, Pat is from Cave Creek Arizona, so I thought it fitting to feature “A Good Night At Cave Creek” from Pat’s CD “Some Like It Country”. This is a Circle Cross Music production.
