    Lots of discussion on remakes and other song styles. Was listening yesterday and heard my favorite cowboy song
    El Paso by Marty Robbins
    I'm sure there are lots of other great ones.

    Is that a cowboy song? Are cowboy songs just country songs? I’m not sure how to identify a cowboy song.

    Cattle Call by Eddy Arnold.

    Cowboy songs normally have to do with the West, guns and cattle. Country normally deals with the opposite sex, booze (or drugs) and faithlessness. Generally

    This is by FAR the best cowboy song.


    This is fairly close second.



    "It is known" -- common Dothraki setting (to keep with the equine theme)
