Kyle Shobe & The Walk ‘Em Boys
For the past decade, Kyle Shobe and the Walk ‘Em Boys have entertained crowds across the west with their unique brand of country music, born and bred in the middle of Montana. As an auctioneer, rodeo announcer, and country music artist, Shobe’s list of occupations is relatively diverse, but all of them circle back to a microphone and his ability to motivate, inspire, or otherwise persuade an audience.
Shobe, the 2010 World Livestock Auctioneer Champion, focuses his time on purebred cattle sales in the spring and fall sale seasons, and sells several weekly livestock markets throughout the year. From his office in Lewistown, he operates the family auction and real estate business with his father Jayson, specializing in farm and ranch equipment, western art and real estate. In addition to announcing numerous PRCA rodeos in Montana and the Dakotas, Shobe has announced Cheyenne Frontier Days since 2007.
The Walk ‘Em Boys travel the region playing concerts and dances at fairs, conventions, weddings and community events.
On July 31, 2019, Shobe released “Long Overdue,” his second studio album.
Recorded in Nashville, “Long Overdue” is a 10-song record capturing the varying styles of music typical of a Walk ‘Em Boys show. The first single off the album, titled “Little Down Town,” was written by Shobe and released to radio on July 1.
