Well, I don’t really have the words to express how pleased and honored I am to have my song Charlie Russell Sky included in Craig Rullman’s forthcoming film on the life and art of Len Babb — and in this video slideshow.
Len’s art is directly inspired by the work of the great cowboy artist Charles M. Russell, and, as Ian Tyson wrote:
When the Lord called Charlie to his home up yonder
He said, Kid Russell, I’ve got a job for you
You’re in charge of sunsets up in old Montana
’Cause I can’t paint them quite as good as you…
Thanks to Craig for including the song, to Keith Banning for the recording work and Lili Worona for the lovely violin, and to Len Babb for carrying on traditions that matter. And thanks to Marilyn Cornelius for dancing with me under that Charlie Russell sky.
