At the inauguration of Wyoming's new governor, Mark Gordon, an old friend of his sang a song that he had written and given to the Governor a few years earlier. It seemed to be the perfect modern day song about Wyoming.

So I called the singer/songwriter and asked him to come on the show and talk about the song.

Dave Munsick calls himself the 'Song Teller.' He lives in Sheridan Wyoming.

Dave writes and sings of a west that many miss; a west of endless emotional landscapes unbroken by borders between people, times and places. These are stories and songs that go down smooth and stay with you awhile.

Besides songs, Dave writes and tells stories that resonate the adventures that his music has taken him on.  He has produced 7 cds of original music, written and recorded themes for historical documentaries, as well as compositions for government, commercial and private sectors.  He also develops educational learning modules that immerse students in the pivotal themes of western history.

Dave is a performer, playing solo as well as with his bands. He has opened for or played fiddle, piano, and guitar for artists including Chris LeDoux, Lyle Lovett, and Ian Tyson.

The video, above, is the interview and the song he sang at Governor Gordon's inauguration.
