What others are saying. This is from an interview dated June 12, 2014 with GT Hurley and Jennifer Dennison of Western Horseman Magazine:
This spring, Hurley released his second CD, War Horse, produced by fellow cowboy singer-songwriter Brenn Hill.
“It’s not as traditional as it probably should be to some folks,” Hurley says. “But it is a reflection of who I am musically, and that is what I want to make sure I offer my fans. I want to be known as an artist with integrity.”
War Horseis a collection of songs about horses, cowboys, soldiers and miners, most of which were written by Hurley based on true stories.
“The title track has an interesting story,” Hurley says. “In 1991, I was getting ready to go on [Operation] Desert Storm and there was a fellow Marine in my unit who had a Colt .45 from 1911 in his holster. At that time we carried 9-milli- meter Berettas, so I asked why he had that Colt. He explained that he had just married and his father-in-law, who was a Marine in World War II, carried that pistol when he landed on the beach of Hiroshima, Japan. The song is about a 1911 pistol coming off an assembly line, being carried into battle and then being handed down to a Texas Ranger.”
