Saddle Up with the Okee Dokee Brothers!

Saddle Up with the Okee Dokee Brothers!

We received this CD/DVD a few days ago. Guess what my daughter won’t stop asking for? Even when we picked up Gappy (her gramma) at the airport, the Okee Dokee brothers were the first line of business. She adores these guys! I do too.

It’s not just their music that’s tons of fun. It’s their personalities. They are talented, funny, adventurous, and a little bit silly. Their DVD makes you want to jump on one of those horses, ride off into the sunset, and wake up the next morning in your tent for another day of adventuring! Check out the Okee Dokee Brothers and get yourself down on the range!

Today, the Grammy Award winning duo of Justin Lansing and Joe Mailander trade their paddles (Can You Canoe?) for saddles, and their hiking boots (Through the Woods) for cowboy boots, with their third Adventure Album. By riding horses and writing songs for 30 days along the Continental Divide, they present another album to inspire families get outside and be creative: Saddle Up: A Western Adventure Album.

Featuring a diverse collective of musicians – John Sebastian (The Lovin’ Spoonful), Carlos Medina (Norteño accordion), Cindy Cashdollar (Asleep at the Wheel), Jim Campilongo (The Little Willies), and The Benally Family (Navajo style singing) – Saddle Up melds “musical styles ranging from cowboy folk to Mexicali folk to bluegrass” (No Depression) with stories inspired by exploration through five national parks and camping along the Continental Divide. The melodic tunes cover tales of western wildlife, Navajo stories, Southwest-style Spanglish, the issue of guns in western lore, friendship, and more.
