Meanwhile, Back at the Golden Ranch

Meanwhile, Back at the Ranch… is a pop/country album by the German band Texas Lightning, made up of country-style covers of pop songs. The album was re-released on 3 March 2006 including the song "No No Never" from Texas Lightning's Eurovision entry. "No No Never" has music & lyrics written by Jane Comerford; it was a huge hit all over Europe in 2006, and Germany's entry for that year's Eurovision finals.

The band Texas Lightning was created by Jon Flemming Olsen and the graphic designer who designs their CD covers and promotional material.[citation needed] Olsen, whose Texas Lightning persona is Johnny "the Flame" Olsen is also on a popular German television show,[citation needed] a contemporary-events conversational satire named Ditsche, which stars another member of the band, drummer Olli Dittrich.
