Some early reviews:

“…For years, Mitchell has been the voice of the working cowboy through his poetry. …the CD will leave you laughing, crying and nodding your head in agreement…” – Western Horseman

“Oh, lucky me. Waddie Mitchell revives the great tradition of story-telling cowboy songs with the intimate, entertaining, Sweat Equity. …Oh how I wish I could just wander into the studio one of these days.” – John Shelton Ivany, JSITop21

“…there is probably no one who fits the image of a cowboy poet more than Waddie Mitchell… his new album will make you think, laugh, and cry…” – Ranch & Reata

“…There’s tons of sense, humor, and cowboy wisdom packed in the latest release by buckaroo poet Waddie Mitchell…” – American Cowboy

“…like listening to every other release from Waddie Mitchell. You are reminded of why many call him “The Grand Master.” …it’s art and heart.” – The Western Way

Maj. Copeland, a chaplain in the U.S. Army whom uses Waddie’s poems in his family counseling sessions and radio programs for soldiers, put it in a way that we heartedly agree with: “Folks seem to understand Waddie even if they’ve never seen a cow.”
