"Hangin' Around The Moon" has it all, from acoustic guitar, "the good stuff, no fluff here," to lyric, to a vocal like no one in the business. The CD takes in subject matter from outlaws, goodguys, gunfighters, drovers and lastly the tender side of the cowboy, with "Slow Death." a song with a powerful dramatic truth, if she doesn't come back to him. This CD stands alone in the street to face off all the "would Be's" with song after song, telling the world "Hangin' Around The Moon" is the real deal in country and western music. Royal Wade Kimes has accomplished something no other artist has since the days of Marty Robbins, he has given us the west in song, and made it seem real, like it's 1880 again. Royal Wade Kimes has made a record, "Hangin' Around The Moon" that Clint Eastwood could find the story in the tracks alone and produce a movie. If you like your music real, if your tired of the same ole 20 tired songs playing over and over on radio, then saddle up cause your in for a ride, you should be, "Hangin' Around The Moon" won the "Will Rogers Award" for best album of the year.
