Traditional country singer-songwriter C.J. Garton is a 6th generation rancher with Cherokee blood running through his veins, and still lives on a cattle farm that was founded by his family during America’s land rush in the late 1800’s, just outside of Bristow, Oklahoma. C.J. is a consummate cowboy in well-worn boots, schooled in the kind of life that rises with the sun and is sustained by the land. A life like this inevitably shapes a man into a natural storyteller which just so happens to be the very foundation the Red Dirt music scene was built upon. C.J. Garton is a proud descendant of that Oklahoma soil and the unprocessed music that grows out of it. His songs are, by definition, working man’s music; all heart with an honest story behind them.
