Michael Martin Murphey narrowed his focus a little for this 1997 set of horse-related songs, eschewing widescreen and outright prairie opera for some straightforward performances on straightforward songs. The exception is the opening "Tennessee Stud," set up as a duet with Johnny Cash, who alternates verses with Murphey. Much of the rest mixes adult contemporary with new country to mixed effect. It's well-done, but unaffecting.
