The Album Just for Friends was the first one recorded and released by Lyle.


It was recorded in the response to the requests from Lyle’s friends/dance band followers of many years, to get his music recorded and available to them. The songs on this album are some of the songs that were quite often requested by these people. Hense comes the title Just For Friends. Lyle sings thirteen popular country songs on this album in his classic country style, by such artists as George Strait, I Just Want to Dance with You; Merle Hagard, Silver Wings; Alan Jackson, Job Description; Waylon Jennings, A Couple More Years, and others. Lyle sings twelve songs on his Cowboys Like Us album, in his smooth, mellow, “classic country music” style.


These are modern day songs about cowboys, previously recorded by such artists as George Strait, Willie Nelson, Marty Robbins and others. Included is the Willie Nelson hit, My Heroes Have Always Been Cowboys, and the Waylon and Willie classic, Mamas Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys. Also included is the George Strait hit, The Cowboy Rides Away, as well as the Ed Bruce classic, The Last Cowboy’s Song. This album is a great collection of easy listening for folks who enjoy “classic country music.” Lyle sings twelve songs on his My Own Stuff album. These songs were written by Lyle and his wife Bernetta.


The first cut on the album is the song You’re The One, written by Lyle for Bernetta. It has become the featured song on this album due the overwhelmingly positive response by followers of Lyle’s “Strait Country” Dance Band. This album provides a great variety of songs for dancing and listening enjoyment.
