Play ALL songs in hi-fi broadband for true stereo reproduction. Be one of the first to write a review of this CD (bottom of page) Leon Cargil is Texas personified. He's long and tall and verrrrrry comfortable to be around, has a ready smile, a rock solid warm handshake (reminiscent of LBJ), lotsa tall tales and a heart chock full of grrrreat country songs to sing. His voice is reminiscent of early Haggard or Randy Travis with a touch of George Jones thrown in for good measure. Every line is delivered with just the right nuance to convey every emotion to the listener. Leon has paid his dues in those Texas Honky Tonk skull orchards. He came up playin' those East Texas Roadhouse gigs, you know, 3 nights a week, a cup of hot coffee and a cold shower. Then graduated to having his own band pulling a U-Haul trailer behind all over the state and finally to the better sit-down jobs in and around Athens and Carthage and Muleshoe and Big John's come and get it. Leon hails from just south of Athens, TX and does most of his honky-tonkin' between Dallas and Houston. He's played all the world famous Texas Halls. Gilley's, Gruene Hall, Longhorn Ballroom, Billy Bob's Texas, Seven Points Western Club, The Orange Blossom Special, etc. He's definitely paid his dues and woodsheded his songwriting craft. Check out 'She Didn't Leave Blue', 'I'll Never Have To Fall In Love Again' or 'Goodnight Memory', all are true-to-life, cold-hard-facts, country-to-the-bone Texas Country Music. Not a lot more to say. Time to let Leon and his music do the talkin'. Crank it up! And get ready to do some cheek to cheek dancin' on those slow ones like 'Stoned On Her Blue Eyes, or 'Goodnight Memory' or 'Lifetime Guarantee' and some serious boot-scootin'on the uptempos: 'Half As Good As Hank, 'Nelson, Haggard & Jones, 'Go See Suzy' or 'I'm Blue Tonight'. Leon does em' all with that good ole Texas Twang Thang that'll have you wantin' to hear MORE! Ain't no doubt about it, Ole Hank'd be proud!
