Exclusive CD! Brooks & Dunn's "Gotta Get Me One of Those" inside!

Musicians by trade, Slim and Howdy have each come to a figurative crossroads in their lives. As fate would have it, they meet at these crossroads, never realizing it's a turning point in their lives. Forced by circumstances to share a truck, they take to the road in pursuit of a common goal--to make it as musicians on the country music circuit.
But it seems no matter where these two travel, trouble finds them. Whether it's turning the tables on a crooked card shark who takes everything they have, or fending off the raging boyfriend of that friendly gal from last night, the guys are constantly needing to outwit the world. And when their friend and boss Jodie Lee disappears, their resourcefulness will truly be tested. Each of the guys has his theory, but they'll need to work together to get to their friend before time runs out.

I'd been waiting on this one for a while. Finally got my hands on a copy. The first time I read the liner notes of one of their CDs, I thought, this is good stuff, they should write a book. It's where their alter egos, Slim and Howdy came into play. Much to my delight, and I'm sure many other fans, those cowboys surface in a comic crime novel waving a trail of dust and trouble everywhere they go. From their initial chance meeting at a used car lot to the kidnapping of a long-time friend, the two find themsevles in some sticky situations with some morally challenged individuals. And do so with charming wit. The sharp dialogue will have you laughing out loud.Whether or not you're a fan of their music, if you enjoy cowboys, suspense and funny one liners, you're sure to like this.This book was a fun, wild ride. One I didn't want to end. I highly recommend it. It also comes with a bonus CD with the song, "Gotta Get Me One of Those" on it. Love the song!

Leave it to Brooks & Dunn to create a tale that could be a song or possibly a movie. A quick read that has plenty of action packed inside to keep one interested in the plot or plots. The characters are full of dust and denim, bolo ties and white lies, cheap bars and guitars, pickup trucks and everyone down on their luck. In the heat of the west, where cards are held close to the vest, cheaters are taken out fast, from hidden pistols that blast. So without giving away the story ,saddle up your horse and hit the trail to your local Barnes and Noble.

You don't have to be a country music lover to enjoy this alter ego Brooks & Dunn escapade. It's a whole lot like line dancin'--you get into the swing as you move along. I also recommend another fun cowboy adventure: One Step Over The Border, by Stephen Bly.
