Jimmy Baldwin - The Cowboy and the Mermaid

by Keith Howerton

Jimmy Baldwin - The Cowboy and the MermaidAmericana music standout Jimmy Baldwin has done it again with his newest release The Cowboy and the Mermaid. Baldwin is a national treasure of a songwriter. Cowboy and the Mermaid contains 11 delightful Baldwin songs that are fun and mature. It is a listening record for true music listeners.

However, there are some toe tapping fun tunes on the project with the highlight being the title track. “Cowboy and the Mermaid” is a tune that rolls along with a cute story backed up by a catchy tune. Other fun songs on the record are “Barbwire Halo”, “The Train Song”, “Brown Paper Koozie Blues”, “Who Put the K in Kountry”, and the salsa-istic “Without You”. “Adam-the Last Soldier” is the most serious song on the CD with compelling lyrics and beautiful musical arrangements.

The Cowboy and the Mermaid is proof that Jimmy Baldwin is one of the most underrated Americana talents in the scene.
