Cowboys and Country Music


All children at one time or another have marvelled at the exploits of there favourite cowboy star, whether it was Tom Mix, Roy Rogers, John Wayne, or Clint Eastwood . The cowboy had a code of honour that he always stuck by, he was free, and he always fought for right.


Country music expresses a way of life that is very real, as well as opinions on how to change it for the better. The artist's that dedicate there lives to the music understand this. The line between cowboys and country music is very thin, I hope to bring about a better understanding of both the cowboy and the country artist.
This web site will study the real old west cowboy, the film cowboy and the roots of country music as well as the artists and writers behind the songs.

My knowledge is limited so if you have anything to add please feel free to contact me.

This site is my tribute to the cowboys and the music. SP
