Description Walter Hurdt & His Singing Cowboys, who originated in Ashville, North Carolina, are one of the hardest to classify groups to emerge in the years before the US entered World War II. As their name suggests, they styled themselves a cowboy group in a region not generally known for spawning groups of that type; and while dressed in western style and included a number of cowboy songs in their repertoire, that description scarcely begins to describe the overall sound of the group. They had a hard-driving Southeastern string band sound, and beyond that seemed to combine two disparate stylistic sounds: the vocal and instrumental approach of the popular, innovative and individual Delmore Brothers with that of the sophisticated and similarly influential Sons Of The Pioneers. When it was all thrown together and there was more to add to the mix, including the original ideas of the talented band members the Singing Cowboys emerged with a sound that was very much their own, an often exciting, often creative and always entertaining hybrid. These recordings date from 1937-1940.
