Cowboys Don't Cry

Posted on 17 December 2009

Eddie Raven Christmas

We were digging around in past Christmas cards and came across Eddie Raven's card.  Not sure what year this was from, but it got us to reminiscing about Eddie Raven and his Cowboys Don't Cry video.

It went something like this:

  • His "people" contacted us back in 2001.

  • They asked if we would dress the girl in Eddie's upcoming video for his new hit single, Cowboys Don't Cry.

  • We said, "Sure, love to".

  • So we sent our "people" to the set with all kinds of Double D Ranchâ„¢ goodies and accouterments.

  • They shot the video.

  • We waited anxiously for the debut.

  • We all watched it and clapped when our jackets showed up, then...

  • Wondered what Eddie meant by "THAT kind of girl".

  • Hmmmm....

We kinda like THAT kinda girl.

Here's the video, what do you think?

So today's trivia question is answered in Eddie's video.  Well, sort of.  It helps if you are a collector or a long-time Double D Ranch™ fashionista:

    What a beautifully shot video! I was lucky enough to meet Eddie after a concert in Colorado Springs in the 80’s. He showed us his tour bus, and I’ll never forget the knee high blue snakeskin boots he was wearing. Closest I can get to naming the jackets is the scout and the mesa.

  • Sarah Mercer Bradley: May 16, 2016

    Im looking all over the internet trying to come up with the answer.

  • Emily Inthachak: May 16, 2016

    I have quite a collection of Double D jackets and Oscar Betz jewelry and I’m a downhome Georgia girl. Sounds like he means the girl is a diva. Anyway the video is great and I love the song. I loved Eddy Raven and Johnny Rodriguez songs in the 70s and early 80s. They sure don’t make country singers like that these days. Thanks goodness for George Strait.

  • Audrey Franz: May 16, 2016

    George is the King!

  • Cheryl: May 16, 2016

    Emily, yes, Audrey is a huge George Strait fan too. Did you send us your address, size, and color preference for the tee you won?

  • Cheryl: May 16, 2016

    High blue snakeskin boots sound wonderful! Yes, I understand he is a really nice guy. I didn’t get to go when they shot the video but Jennifer said he and his entire crew were wonderful people. That sure is nice to know. And yes, one of the jackets is a scout…can you be more specific about which one? If so, you gotta DDR tee!

  • Cheryl: May 16, 2016

    Sarah, I’m sure your mom probably has one in her closet!

  • shmuela padnos: May 16, 2016

  • Audrey Franz: May 16, 2016

    Emily, we have lots of George stories in our family . I checked and your tee shipped today!

  • Emily Inthachak: May 16, 2016

    You got that right Audrey. He came to Jacksonville last March. He was lookin’ and sounding as good as ever. Yes I emailed my info yesterday. Just let me know if you didn’t get it and I’ll resend it. Just wanted to let ya’ll know whenever I wear my Double D jackets I get lots of compliments, even here in the deep South.

  • Audrey Franz: May 16, 2016

    If it makes anyone feel better I had to dig in our archives to get correct names on the jackets plus there were six of us gathered around the computer screen all giving different names. We finally figured it out! Good luck!

  • Emily Inthachak: May 16, 2016

    The first one I ever got was the black Martingale, I also have the “Be MIne” in a kind of rust red with fringe and hearts that is still my favorite, a turquoise soft leather one with fringe and studs that has a kind of western comic book lining, a buttery yellow one with appliques and fringe that I think is called Magnolia. I saw it in a window on the square in Santa Fe about 3 summers ago and had to have it and the filmy paisley skirt. Also have some of your jewelry, a pair of black jet earrings that I got from your Fredericksburg store, a belt with a large turquoise-encrusted buckle, and a big chunky turquoise necklace, plus I can’t count the skirts and tops because I have some in my cedar closet upstairs in case I lose weight. I am a Double D fanatic! I would love to hear your George stories! That Artist of the Decade show was fantastic. Thanks for sending out the shirt so quickly!

  • Cheryl: May 16, 2016

    Shmuela, I love your creativity…keep going with that story. You are really close on your trivia answer, but there is a certain brand of Indian blankets that made the fabric for us. “_______ Indian Blanket Duster.” Also, your Scoodle ’em Skoo Jacket is very collectible. For sure hang on to it or if you want to part with it – call me first!

  • Cheryl: May 16, 2016

    Hey Audie, we should do your George Strait story and pic.

  • Cheryl: May 16, 2016

    Emily, that is great to hear. What jackets do you have?

  • shmuela padnos: May 16, 2016

  • Cheryl: May 16, 2016

    Pendelton Blanket Duster – you got it! Send us your address, size and color preference and we will get you a tee out before Christmas. Thanks for playing!

  • shmuela padnos: May 16, 2016

  • Cheryl: May 16, 2016

    Wow, Emily, you are a Double D Girl! Martingale is a classic – very good. Love Be Mine and not sure what the others are either. Thanks again. On the George Strait thing, Audrey is going to need to tell that one. She has connections and pics. I think she even has a pair of his Wranglers – go figure! I’ll get her to post something.
