With the military and veterans in mind, Barry knows what they are going through with songs like “The Brave and the Free”, “Freedom at Last” and “Welcome Home”. America is great due to the sacrifice of our military. Also includes some originals and a few country classics like “North to Alaska”, “Wings Of A Dove”, and “Back Home Again”.
The songs on this album are hand-picked favorites of Barry’s. He wrote the songs while operating his fourth-generation family farm. His song “Harvest in the Fall,” closes the movie ‘The Great American Wheat Harvest’. It is the story of Barry’s last wheat harvest with his father, Leonard, and his Uncle Tommy Ward.
Lonesome County Road
This CD offers another of Barry’s solid listening pleasures. Seven originals, including the historic saga song “Roman Nose”, the wistful love song “I Hear Her Calling”, and “Beyond the Western Sky”. Good covers include “A Storm Abrewin” and “My Oklahoma Home”. One critic wrote; “I didn’t think anyone could sing “The Blizzard” as well as Jim Reeves did, but I was wrong!”
West of Dodge
On this album you will hear some songs that have a very Western gunslinger sound to a bluesy– jazz sound to even a little Texas-swing! Eleven of the thirteen songs were written by Barry. “September’s Song” which he wrote after celebrating his wedding anniversarywith his wife Victoria; while others are just for fun, like “Going Down To The River” which actually incorporates the names of his real childhood friends. The first track “Eli Crow” by the late Paul Hendel won Song of the Year with the Academy of Western Artists.
Joy Sweet Joy
Some of these songs I grew up singing while my mother played the piano in our little church. Traditional greats such as “Mansion Over the Hilltop”, the medley “I Saw the Light / I’ll Fly Away”, a haunting version of “Wayfaring Stranger”, my wife’s favorite hymn “Suppertime”, and finally “Life’s Railway to Heaven”. There is a great joy that awaits us in Heaven. My song “Joy Sweet Joy” tells of that excitement and the song “Too Much Trouble” reveals how we all sometime fail at helping others out. “Crown of Thorns” I wrote about The Passion of Jesus Christ. And my mother’s favorite track is “Ridin’ Along the Cimarron”, that I wrote after pushing cattle through the Cimarron River in northern Oklahoma.
Christmas on the Ranch
A wonderful blend of classic and original Christmas songs about the true meaning of Christmas. You will recognize some of the songs such as Michael Martin Murphey’s “Christmas on the Line”, and “Colorado Christmas” by the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band. Ward’s original song “Christmas in the Pine River Valley” was inspired when his wife Victoria worked for a dude ranch outside of Durango, Colorado. And speaking of his wife, Barry had no choice but to include her all-time favorite Christmas song “Little Drummer Boy”.
