Cowboy Night

 

This weekend a friend encouraged DH and I to get out. The local Spiva Art was having a small art show this month of Western Art. On Saturday night, they had a special program that was music, song, and stories. Geff Lawson who is a winner of the National Cowboy Poetry Rodeo in Utah and a member of the Cowboy Hall of Fame was the program.  

Geff and his wife Dawn were great music makers. He set most of his Cowboy Poetry to his own music and told jokes and stories in between. The crowd was small but included a few cowboys. What is not to love about music, poetry, and cowboys in great hats not to mention fancy boots!
 

I appreciate Cowboy Poetry but am not good at writing it. I thought once I would give it a try, but I had no inspiration or talent for it.

 
This guy had an amazing resemblance to Sam Elliot! He was a prize winning Cowboy Poet from Arkansas.
 
 
Do you like Cowboy Poetry or just cowboys?

I've never even heard of Cowboy Poetry and I live in Nashville! It sounds like fun, though!

Claudia--I'm like Stephanie. I've never heard of cowboy poetry. But it DID sound like a fun event.

Happy Thanksgiving, Claudia. I hope it's a wonderful day for you.

I've never heard of cowboy poetry, but I'm a fan of cowboys for sure! Not sure if Blogger will allow me to post a link, but I'll try. It's a Trisha Yearwood tune called "Cowboys Are My Weakness." Enjoy!
