Celebrating the lifestyle, values and love of wide open spaces "Where Cowpokes Grow", the name of his latest independent CD, the Wyoming born and raised singer/songwriter Bryan Ragsdale redefines "cowboy cool" for the modern world with an upbeat mix of country, bluegrass, folk and a little old fashioned cowboy swagger for good measure. Through RCI Music in Franklin, TN, Ragsdale recently released the collectionís high spirited debut single "Modern Day Mountain Man", about a city slickerís relocation from New York City to "old Wyoming", to over 500 Americana, Country and College Radio stations across the U.S. On the competition based website www.ourstage.com, the track reached 2 in both the bluegrass and traditional country genres for two months each. "Wyoming Melody", the title track from his 2007 debut album "Wyoming Melodies", was the theme song for a TV show called "All Girl Getaways" on the Fine Living Network; the show was about the Ranger Creek Dude Ranch in Wyoming. Ragsdale performs over 200 shows a year!
