Barry McGuire
“Cosmic Cowboy”

Barry McGuire was one of several former rock artists who became born again Christians in the 70s, during the Jesus Music movement.  Like the rest of the singers, McGuire knew only one thing - music, and so he, like all of the others started singing Christian music.  It was during his brief stint in Christian music that Barry McGuire recorded one of my favorite songs of the Jesus Music era, it was called "Cosmic Cowboy," and it is our Song Highlight Of The Week.

Now, the concept of cowboys in the sky was not a new one, Burl Ives had actually recorded "Ghost Riders In The Sky" in 1949, but this is the first (and as far as I know the only) time that subject has been made into a Christian song.  The result is four minutes and 49 seconds of pure joy, that you're going to love, if you've never heard it before. McGuire's masterful storytelling skills are front and center on this track, and it is a great representation of what the music of the original era of CCM was all about.

We hope you will enjoy this short CCM history lesson this week, as feature a lost classic on the Song Highlight Of The Week.  It will air several times each day this week, so be sure to listen in, and enjoy this fun throwback to the late 70s, and the Jesus Music era, on CCM Classic.
