Back in the early 80s, I finished school and headed west. I had an old car and a bit of cash and I wanted to see a the west. Once I hit the prairies, I heard Ian Tyson singing cowboy songs on just about any radio station I tuned into. By the time I got home, quite a few of those songs were running through my head. I listened to so many of his songs over the years.
Ian Tyson was a great singer, a fabulous songwriter, and maybe even a national treasure. RIP
