About the Album
Titled "Bob Wiles and Cowboy Jones", there are 12 songs on the album ...
Some Old , Some new , A look back and A look forward.
Some written by Bob Wiles, some written by Anthony Pierce and some by their songwriting mentors
Greg Jacobs, Tom Skinner and Bob Childers.
Something special happens when Cowboy Jones takes the stage.
Not just the music, but the love and respect that they have for each other.
They decided to go into the studio and document it, at the legendary Teegarden Studios in Tulsa, Oklahoma,
The band has dedicated the album to Jim Paul Blair and Dub Carr.
Some brand new songs from Bob Wiles include I'M GONNA WAKE UP.
Bob Started this song when Bob Childers died (a wake up call),
he wrote another verse when Tom Skinner died, he wrote some more when Brandon Jenkins died
and he finished the song when Jim Paul Blair passed away. Jim was a dear friend and member of the band.
His untimely passing came right when the band was starting the new recording project.
Dub Carr was band member Anthony Pierce's father in law. He died of complications from Corona Virus.
We miss them both and our heart goes out to anyone who has experienced a similar loss in these strangest of times

as well as some of Bob's songs that have never been recorded before:
