Ronald Young sings two of his original songs with a little country flavor, “Oklahoma Man” and “Sleepless Nights”. He is joined by his friend, Jim Garling, on guitar. Anyone interested in recording his songs should contact him on this website.
The following 5 songs are from a rehearsal of a new show in the works that is a tribute to all male “Crooners.” In high school my dream used to be that I was born in the wrong era - I coulda’ been a crooner! What do you think? Do I have a shot at it?
Around 1980 I spent two years writing the music and lyrics for country western songs. Here are seven of the songs that give a sampling of my work. Just click on the title to hear the song.
