The band’s 1st song, Alberta Home was originally published spring of 2011. Since the release of the bands 1st full studio album in September 2012 Tap9’s identity has become more defined. Leaning back on their country roots (It’s hard not to have country roots when you hale form San Antonio, Texas or Lacombe, Alberta) this newest 3 track offering dubbed Cowboy In Paradise once again demonstrates Tap 9’s versatility.
