Royal Wade Kimes Reveals the Soul and Character of “A Proud Land”
A Proud Land
Royal Wade Kimes releases “A Proud Land” on Wonderment Records and is distributed nationally by Select-O-Hits.
“A Proud Land” is the first of its kind in theme. It begins with the civil war and then takes you to the outlaw days of the west…and without realizing, the listener will find they have drifted across the plains on wagons going west with “Wagon Train.”
This CD album of music is powerful and entertaining from the first to last cut. That can be said of many records…the difference here is, this collection of songs is like watching a movie in music, and the last cut, “Run Wild”, about a man and his horse, is one of Kimes’ finest moments in writing and performance…subsequently, very believable.
“A Proud Land” is also the sound track for the short film “Dixie Burns” that aired on Bluehighways TV Network, a film of the civil war and a soldier’s struggles making his way home. Kimes’ CDs can be found in all major market .coms and hundreds of brick and mortar stores.
