Local artist Aspen Black has released another CD, "Eastern Western Cowgirl," which has already been confirmed for radio air play.
"I was also recently informed that it has been nominated for the Rural Roots Music Commission CD of the Year," said Black.
Black is a WMA (Western Music Association) recording artist, who writes and performs in the contemporary western, traditional county, folk, Christian and cowgirl poetry genres.
In addition to singing and songwriting, Black is also a painter, an author, a champion barrel racer and owner or Buksbari Ranch in Rocky Mount.
"I'm an all-around horsewoman," she said.
Eastern Western Cowgirl features eight tracks, including "Cowbuquerque," "Wanderin'," "Dream Ride," "Eastern Western Cowgirl," "Cabin of Dreams," "Ride with You," "Snowdog Moon" and "Cottonwood Tree."
Black recently completed a tour through parts of Southwest Virginia, West Virginia and New Jersey, and said she has a main stage showcase in this year's WMA convention in New Mexico.
"I am also awaiting concert confirmations in Grants, New Mexico, and Casper, Wyoming," she said.
Black said she delights in connecting with her audiences and has enjoyed radio airplay in commercial country and, later, western markets since 1994.
