Hard Natrona Plain is the group's latest offering of what they call "Western Rebel Music", a mix of cool ol' school country with a driving western edge.  The album offers a musical look at life on the western plains.  Subjects include hard living and loving shaped by the elements, oil prices, vehicle choices, and even a thought on end-times.

The CD is loaded with musical talent from Wyoming and from Nashville.  Co-writers for the project include central Wyomingites John Kirlin and Sue Morrison.   Studio instrumentalists include Dave Roe (upright bass for Johnny Cash, Dwight Yoakam) and John McTigue III (drums for Jim Lauderdale, Emmylou Harris), as well as two Western Rebels, Jimmy Harper and Angie Schneider.  All this was done with producer and long-time collaborator Scott McEwen at the Fry Pharmacy studio in Nashville, with a Wyoming state flag hanging on the wall through the whole process.
