"Aspen Black's New CD"

Aspen Black's new CD, A Hundred Years Too Late, (CRCD008) on the Catawba Label, was recommended to me by radio host Al Krtil. Aspen owns and operates a ranch where she breaks and trains horses! Her lyrics reflect her love of the west and it's wide open spaces. Among the 12 selections, there's a song sub-titled "The Ballad Of Ian Tyson", and otheres like "Ride Cowgirl Ride" and "Barrel Horse Blues". That reflects her perspective as a cowgirl and trainer. While all the songs on this CD are originals, they don't overdo the percussion that so often characterizes contemporary recordings. Acoompaniment emphasizes the acoustic sound, allbeit not exclusively so. - OJ Sykes of The Western Way


Great new material for my "Legends Of Country Show" - Gene Chilcott, KIMP- Dallas, TX


This is really going to be a treat. I can't wait to play it on "Early Morning Trails". - Al Krtil, WRSU-FM, Ship Bottom, NJ

Feeling a bit camera shy


Aspen is the "real deal" when it comes to western entertainment. She is a former rodeo barrel racer and NBHA Champion, and now teaches horseback riding at her ranch in Virginia. She has travelled all over the western US and parts of Canada, and includes the experiences of being on the rodeo circuit along with those while horse training and teaching into her songs. She has been writing and recordong original western, traditional country, and folk songs since 1992, with commercial radio airplay in 1993 and 1994, and international radio airplay in 2003, and currently in 2005. She has been lauded by DJ's and western music critics alike for her great original lyrics that touch the heart of fans (cowboy or not). If you are looking for professional cowgirl-style entertainment, you need Aspen Black.
