For the first time ever, a single CD has been named "Cowboy Poetry CD of the Year" by both the Western Music Association and the Academy of Western Artists! A great honor. Many thanks to the AWA for this most recent award, shaped in the image of the inimitable Will Rogers. High praise, indeed. And thanks to all of you in the audience. Without you, the poems would only echo across empty walls. It is the listener that honors today's poem, and inspires the poem of tomorrow.
