Gulf Coast Cowboy: November 6

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail

Welcome back to another episode of the Gulf Coast Cowboy! This episode is all about sailing (no, not the Christopher Cross song), I'm talking about being out on the water without a care in the world.

We're also happy to hear that Sunny Jim has been voted the Troprock Music Association's "Entertainer of the Year" and "Male Vocalist" 2013! Sunny Jim is an 8-time Trop Rock Music Association award winner.

There's nothing like getting out on the water and letting the wind take you wherever it is you're going. You've really gotta try it, if you haven't. This week, sailing has been on my mind a lot. It's getting colder here, and there's really nothing I'd rather be doing than enjoying the sun right about now. Oh well, soon I will be! On to the music! Up first is "Soul of a Sailor" by Kenny Chesney. I feel him when he sings "I was born a son of the sea". Preach it, Kenny. Up next is "So He Sails" by Eric Stone and then "Beer Drinkers & Sail Raisers" by Hanna's Reef. That last one reminds me of myself a little bit. David Gray is up next with "Sail Away", then Billy Mitchell with "Float Away". With all this talk of sailing away and floating away, I think I might just book my trip to Key West a little earlier this year. The one and only, Jimmy Buffett is up next with "Son of a Son of a Sailor" followed by Kelly McGuire with "Sailing Away From the Madness". Away from the madness sounds pretty good right about now. Anyone have a sailboat I could borrow for a few? "Sailing to Road Town" by Steve Tolliver is up next, followed by the Gainesville, FL-based Sister Hazel with "Sail Away". Award nominated Texas singer/songwriter Dennis Davis is up next with his fantastic song "Tropic of Texas". Up next is "Sandbar Serenade" from the Troprock Music Association's "Entertainer of the Year", Sunny Jim! Bringing this episode to a close is another Texas trop rocker, Gary James Moeller, with "Texas Island Style".

This years Trop Rock Music Association Awards have been announced, go have a look! Do you feel that KBEC's Gulf Coast Cowboy should be recognized? We do too. Let's get KBEC nominated next year for the awards!
