Once upon a time, Country Music was known as 'Country & Western,' it was called this for a reason. That's where listeners found songs by such greats as Marty Robbins, Patsy Montana, Tex Ritter and Gene Autry -artists who favoured the 'western' sounds and values. Somewhere along the way, the 'Western' was dropped, and over the past decade the Country Music Industry has increasingly focused on more 70s and 80s pop flavored sounds, in an effort to attract a younger audience.
"I personally can't live without Western music," says Joni Harms. "I like a lot of today's country music, but the truth of the matter is that I'm very serious about keeping the western side of country music alive." The sincerity in her voice is clear.
"The majority of my songs include lyrics of the west, because I love to write about things I've experienced," she says. "Rodeo, cowboys, and the ranch way of living shows through a lot in my music."
