Texas-based singer-songwriters James McMurtry and BettySoo were among the guests on the latest episode of nationally syndicated radio show eTown. Host Nick Forster and the eTown House Band joined McMurtry and BettySoo for a performance of “Canola Fields.”

“Canola Fields” opens McMurtry’s latest studio album, The Horses and the Hounds, which arrived on August 21 via New West Records. The song garnered the skilled singer-songwriter an Americana Music Award nomination.


Filmed for eTown live at The Momentary in Bentonville, Arkansas, “Canola Fields” showcased McMurtry’s wordsmithery and knack for storytelling. His tourmate BettySoo joined him in harmony on the choruses alongside tasty solos from both James and Nick Forster.
