JOHNNY MINICK AND THE STEWART BROTHERS
Johnny Minick and the Stewart Brothers present this self-titled album, a fantastic debut recording in their own unique style. Johnny, Lonnie and Phil have brought together a stellar collection of songs that reflect their love of Western music. Among the many songs on the album are two classic Stuart Hamblen songs, “It Is No Secret What God Can Do” and “Until Then.” Both are favorites of many Gospel music fans, presented in the group’s Western style.
Johnny Minick says, “Our purpose is to revive a once vibrant genre of American popular music. Western music, later branded as Country Western, maintained a high profile in the 1940s and ‘50s and then began to decline in the 1960s with more artists migrating to a more Country flavor. ... The signs are pointing toward a growing interest in the Western culture. [We see] changes toward Western fashions, design, and now we see the opportunity to reintroduce Western music to this generation of potential fans.”
“This debut project will vary in accompaniment from a small rhythm section to a full orchestra. Our target for the feel and emotion of the music is to capture the massiveness of the soundtrack to a Big Western Movie on at least 40% of the project. Another 40% of the project should capture the Western flavor of a ‘Sons Of The Pioneers’ project, and 20% should contain a ‘Hollywood’ Western Swing feel (using clarinet instead of fiddle).”
