Butch recently recorded the Western Music Association Song of the Year; Below the Kinney Rim written by Les Buffham and Michael Fleming. Mike's reaction is worth quoting.

"Excellent work, great voice. You really captured the flavor and spirit of both Stampede and Below the Kinney Rim. I will be proud to play your renditions for anyone!" Michael Fleming

"Got a call from Dave Bouchard. He heard Butch singin' "Below the Kinney Rim", on CFCW Edmonton and sez he's just gotta have that tape" Hugh McLennan

"Each week I really agonize over the music I fit into the Spirit of the West program. There are many tapes and CD's with two or three cuts that make it for air play but albums like this one, where every selection is more than up to standard, are much harder to find" Hugh McLennan - "Spirit of the West"

The third album entitled "Life on the Land" released by local musician Butch Falk would be most accurately described as a collection of "cowboy" or "western" songs, composed by some of "Butch's" favorite writers.

While Ian Tyson and Tom Russell are already well known, artist names like "Rob Dinwoodie" and "Ken Overcast" will be new to most people.

Chosen for their emotional appeal, Butch felt the lyrics of these songs either hit close to home in some way for him or for others he has known.

"Move a Mountain" by rancher Ken Overcast (Montana) is a prayer for healing for a terminally sick friend. "Hallie Lonnigan" by Tom Russell is a tribute to the pioneer women and the hardship they endured. "Same Kind of Horse" by Rob Dinwoodie compares old time horse trainers and methods used today. Very welcome additions to this album are background vocals and a duet on "Billy Gray" with special guest, Eli Barsi. Eli is making great strides in the country music scene. Her latest single "Speechless" can be heard frequently on JC55.

Butch has always had a heartfelt appreciation for his "Life on the Land" and through his music hopes to express that appreciation to others and provide a little insight into a way of life they may not otherwise have the privilege to experience.

Butch spent many years performing, country music, but his real love was the cowboy ballads and songs of the west. Butch's interest in western music was renewed after attending several cowboy poetry and western music gatherings. He found it refreshing to know there were other folks out there who still liked to write songs about family values and traditions and life on the land.
