“Cowboys And Sunsets” the latest from Roo Arcus launched January 20 the 2015 Tamworth Country Music Festival
Based near Goulburn, NSW, Roo shares his time on the family cattle property and writing/performing his distinctive brand of country music. “Cowboys And Sunsets” was produced by Jerry Salley (Reba McEntire, Brad Paisley, Joe Nichols) in the USA amongst the landscapes and people that inspired him as a child.
Roo spent the better part of two weeks back in June 2014 recording the new album in Gallatin, just outside of Nashville, Tennessee with three of the twelve tracks being self-penned and one co-write. After Roo recorded ‘If We Didn’t Know So Much’ written by Jerry Salley for his last album, Jerry invited Roo to record in the US and Roo gladly accepted the offer.
