I immediately liked Curtis Lee Putman’s new single, #TallintheSaddle, upon first hearing it. His deep voice suits Country music perfectly, and the beat, the violins and subject matter are spot on for a good Country song. #TallintheSaddle (When I Ride) is the first single from a planned full album release to be entitled #MyTruth. Putman likes hashtags.
Like all good Country songs, there’s truth to the words Putman, aka “The Rambling Man,” is singing. It tells the story of the aftermath of his being exonerated of wrongful criminal charges. After taking on a corrupt County in Michigan that was “prosecuting for profit,” Putman spent several weeks as a fugitive from justice. In the end, he was cleared of the charges. Even the bounty hunter who apprehended him became his friend and ended up helping him. As you can imagine, the whole situation has the making of a great Country music album as Putman tells his side of the story.
When he’s not making music, Putman is an advocate against parental alienation with Dads and Moms of Michigan. He also raises awareness regarding parental alienation, father’s rights, and the rights of the falsely accused.
Having played guitar since the age of 12, Putman’s influences include Hank Williams Sr. and Johnny Cash. He currently calls Montgomery, Alabama home, and considers his concerts to be parties rather than performances.
After receiving several of life’s curve balls–usually knocking them back over the fence but not always– Putman has overcome his demons and found peace. He finds himself in a place where good has come from the bad. Singing and songwriting have soothed his soul and now he wants to share it.
“I just play music, the good kind, the universal language of everyone. Because really, we’re all saying the same thing,” he says.
Curtis Lee Putman is a dynamic performer, a gifted songwriter and a strong musician.
