I was watching some Wanda Jackson from the 50’s from that California jamboree. Me too. I don’t remember the exact quote, but Waylon said something in his autobiography about how he loved horns in country music and thought they sounded beautiful. 17 August 2016, 09:00 | Updated: 9 August 2017, 10:14 rusty beltway That show was actually done in Compton if you (and Ice Cube) can believe that. February 28, 2017 @ This is however a fruitless debate. Perhaps that’s taking into account that Markham did more actual service time over those 40 years, or was closer to Merle than Norm was, I really don’t know. Wheatus Thank you for this wonderful article! Jamey Johnson had horns with him last time I saw him at the Bluebird. 10:30 am, Just wanted to thank you for your wonderful article about our Dad. Leticia Mollers But even if Sturgill dropped the horns it still wouldnt be a country record. Saxophone, trumpet, and even bass, piano, or keyboards here and there, Don Markham was Merle Haggard’s one man musical auxiliary, which suit him well since Markham liked to blend into the background, and set up at the very back of the stage out of the spotlight. Its odd that the two biggest records in ‘country’ (Chris and Sturgill’s) arent even country music but more of a r & b/soul with 90s radio rock or lillith fair vibe. February 28, 2017 @
Different vibe, I guess.). Cultures are the result of cultivation. And who is going to trust Lyle Lovett as some country music authority with that hair?
Can we trade the synthesizers and drum loops for more horns in country music? 9:40 am, People who complain that horns don’t belong in country music obviously haven’t heard Ring of Fire…. I would like to disagree and say that the album was more soul music than it was country, but I’m out of my realm in trying to categorize something that doesn’t fall neatly into the country realm. Note that “It’s All in the Movies” has unusual chord changes for country music, it’s a jazz vamp mostly, and the sax sounds natural in that setting. 10:31 am. Gena R. Trigger February 28, 2017 @ In fact there are several bands in Nashville playing western swing nowadays although they don’t all use horns. how close he was to Merle. Country music has been predominantly string music; there’s just no getting around it. 11:22 am.

Don was actually driving a tour bus for Johnny Paycheck in 1972 when he pulled the bus up right beside Merle Haggard’s rig at a stop in New Mexico. Or how about just look at the house band of Dale Watson’s recent Ameripolitan Awards in Austin, TX—a bastion for the die-hard and tightly-defined traditional country crowd. Sturgill and Stapleton are symptoms of the same ‘mono-genre’ you had been talking abour for years. Charly … There are actually a ton of string band busking-style bands out there right now featuring horns of some sort. This track has been composed and produced by me. For similar work, see Hank Williams Jr., who has involved horns on more country tunes (“Man of Steel,” “Women I’ve Never Had”) and…less country tunes, like “Ain’t Misbehavin’.”. This also marked the debut hit between Kaempfert and his orchestra. Thanks. 7:42 pm. I expect his next record to be his biggest and best, and to be more country than his current one. They had string instruments because they could build them. 7:13 am. Todd Villars And as a side note, Jason Boland replaced the sax solo on “Rainbow Stew” with steel guitar on his Live in the Rockies album, and that’s just as fantastic. Sax would just sound silly in, say, bluegrass — though I’m sure some wunderkind will show up to prove that it could “work.” But beyond a novelty? Mule the Hag as well. February 28, 2017 @ He played will Bill Woods, Fuzzy Owens, and when Bakersfield country king Buck Owens was putting together the legendary Bakersfield Brass horn section (you still think horns don’t belong in country?

Melodic parping powers this excellent track that opened 1992's Seven album. Let’s face it though, Western Swing is only one small facet of country music, and what the hell does “Ameripolitan” mean anyway? Regardless of ones tastes marketing EDM as country is just as shitty as marketing R&B Soul Blues as country. 10:38 am.
R&B and country come from the same place & then evolved in different directions & included different influences (for example the fiddle, which comes from European culture & is a part of country/blue grass but not r&b). Copyright: Heavenly Trumpet Music.Stock Media licensed from Envato.
Since trumpet was my instrument of choice, I’ve always liked the horns. The author of this song is Klaus-Günter Neumann, and it is translated into English by Lincoln Chase. He has played dobro and steel guitar in the Strangers since 1960. He was very humble, and you could tell on stage
Of course they do! 9:52 am.
Therealbobcephus These are all elite professionals who know what the hell they’re doing.
Bob Wills played western swing wasnt really a honky tonk act anyways no shock he should use horns. Trig – do you feel the mono-genre is still a threat? Another good one Trigger. How do you see ‘country’ artists doing r&b or soul while covering Nirvana or reworking classic country songs into a soul tune and marketing it as country fitting into this mono-genre?

10:29 am. But it was there. All around you feels like a doo-op song out of the fifties, and it would be difficult to classify a song like between the lines as country. Song structure is part of it, arrangement is part of it, lyricAL style part of it, instruments a little part of it and vocal style part of it. Was surprised to hear that he was in the band longer than Norm Hamlet. No offense to Norm whatsoever. In fact I like horns in rock and rI’ll quite a bit and retro soul , Dap Kings yes! I remain very positive for the future of non-radio, independent country music, and this will help counter-balance the continued rise of the monogenre.
Merle is my favorite especially his albums from the 80’s that always featured horns! They may not make a project country, but they also don’t exclude a project from being considered country either just by their presence. My goal is to create a place of peace and harmony giving you inspiration, faith, hope and love.
I was lucky enough to meet Don, a couple of times. Sturgill Simpson’s “A Sailor’s Guide to Earth” is still more country music than it is anything else, but it’s also not a very country record compared his previous two or other country projects. February 28, 2017 @ Angels Choir With Trumpet Sound - Faith Hope Love - YouTube The first time I saw Merle Haggard live was in the fall of 2013. So when, like Cash, you bring in a trumpet, it’s for color. Merle obliged, seeing it as an opportunity to put a little bit of that Bob Wills magic behind his music, and a friendship was born. When there is a distinct lack of good country out there in the mainstream its a bit of a piss off when talented people (like Sturgill) run off to play Bruno Mars or something. 10 Great Songs That Feature Trumpets. 1am - 4am, Teenage Dirtbag His saxophone work was one my favorite parts of Merle Haggard’s sound. The story of how he started in The Strangers is like something out of fiction. And when Merle brings in sax, it’s for friendship and Freddy’s affection for jazz.

He was close to Merle, but as far as outlasting any other member, I agree with those who mentioned Norm Hamlet, Norm was hired as steel man in 1967, was the band leader, and was there as a Stranger up until Merle passed away in 2016. 4:11 pm. March 1, 2017 @ Merle’s song “Are the Good Times Really over” is a great example of horns belonging in country music. A few more great examples : 45 Comments. Primarily because Sturgill is so far ahead of them when it comes to songwriting ability (including lyrically, musically, as a bandleader, and production-wise), and at the end of the day, that is what matters. Great article Trigger, very informative. Random Notes And don’t get you started about Sturgill Simpson and his latest record.
