"A walkin', talkin', singin', strummin', yodelin' ambassador of all things Western, Wylie Gustafson never fails to convey both the exhilarating possibilities and trying obstacles of the dusty plains that he calls home. With a voice as warm as a Montana sunset, and a band equally versed in Western swing, rockabilly, honky-tonk, and classic cowboy balladry, Wylie & the Wild West are riding high on Paradise. A varied collection of rousing two-steps, lonesome laments, and luscious lullabies, Wylie's fifth album stands as a masterful chronicle of open spaces: from the mountains' inspiring majesty to the longing that a cowboy feels on the long rides away from home. Listening to Paradise means hopping in the saddle for a ride with one of the giants of contemporary western music. Climb in and hold on!"
Brad San Martin
Music write

"Each collection of Wylie's music proves that he just keeps getting better. As it happens, he works in a little more variety, more variations in approach and arrangement. He's not just one of the best two or three yodelers breathing anymore, he's grown as a musician and a writer. As a bonus, the band proves that Western swing is more than alive and well, it's dang near nuclear powered here."
