Santa Fe Trail Association Official Song!

“Trail to Santa Fe”
Selected Official Song of Santa Fe Trail Association
It’s official! The Santa Fe Trail Association now has an “official song”. In September 2014, Directors of SFTA
voted to adopt Trail to Santa Fe as the Association’s official song. Kansas Flint Hills area balladeer Annie Wilson composed the song. SFTA member and Cottonwood Crossing President Steve Schmidt fact checked the lyrics and assisted Ms. Wilson with research and by recommending books to read about the Trail. “I love the tradition of telling our American story through music,” Ms. Wilson says of her new song, one of 30 on the new double CD recorded by Ms. Wilson’s Tallgrass Express String Band, “Sky & Water, Wind and Grass”. The band has recorded four CDs, including a unique album series of 46 all-original Songs from the Kansas Flint Hills.
