  • Meet Todd "Big T" Deming - Kick-Ass Southern Rock Musician

    Todd "Big T" Deming Todd is wearing Scully "Pure White" from AJ's Western Wear

    For all you cowgirls and cowboys who love some kick-ass music, have I got a treat for you. I was lucky enough to do an interview with Todd "Big T" Deming, who is releasing his debut solo album, "Put Some South in Yer Mouth," TODAY (August 21).

    Todd "Big T" Deming Background
    Big T is a West Virginia native who was raised in Jackson County. After graduating from Ravenswood High School, he went on to WVU and later Marietta College in Ohio where he majored in music education while playing football. Todd later left school to play for the US Football Allstars, traveling the globe to Hawaii and even Germany.

    In 2000, Todd moved to Maine and he started the band Wolfcreek in an effort to bring Southern Rock to the North East. After a successful run of live shows and gaining a devoted fan base, Todd continues to carve out his own path. He's releasing his solo album in conjunction with Red Ridge Entertainment in Nashville. The album is being released through Magenta Records on 8/21.  Continue reading

  • Meet Soapy Smith - Old West Confidence Trickster

    Hey, all! Ol' Clementine here is back from a long holiday weekend. Hope your Independence Day celebrations were fun. I spent lots of time at family BBQs, and one of the things I love most about these get-togethers is the storytelling that takes place. Stories about ancestors, stories about crazy townspeople, stories about Clementine when she was a blushing girl of twenty and met a cowboy, and…

    Never you mind. That story is staying with me.

    Some other stories I like are the ones about characters from the Old West. God knows there were plenty of 'em, right? So today's post is brought to you by Brian McGovern, the "Brooklyn Magician" who is known for his "Hijinx Magic and Fun Show." Even though Brian hails from The Big Apple, he knows quite a bit about old-time tricksters. I asked him to share some stories, and he's gone and done just that below. Enjoy!  Continue reading

    It's Wednesday, hump day, and right before a l-o-n-g weekend. We thought we'd do something fun today. Cowboy poet Glen Enloe, who won our first annual Cowboy Poetry contest back in April, wrote this fun little gem and sent it to us.

    Summer brings out all sorts of weird attire as people attempt to stay cool. And one of the oddest -- and most debated -- are those infamous Crocs. Do you wear 'em? Be careful how you answer. Check out Glen's poem below. Enjoy!  Continue reading

  • Western Landscape Photo Contest 2010

    sunset with horseAh, Mother Nature. Her artistry is unparalleled, especially when it comes to one of her favorite palettes: the American west.

    Close your eyes. C'mon. Go ahead. Now picture this: blazing orange sunsets. Cloudless blue sky. A pack of wild horses running. Cattle grazing. A solitary cactus blooming. A storm watch. A tornado. Dusk, captured on film. Early morning, steam rising from the earth. Starlit sky.

    You get the idea.

    So why am I going on like this? Well, we had so much fun with our last contest, we decided to run a new one: an American western landscape photo contest.  Continue reading

  • Cowboy Poetry Winner

    We received fabulous submissions for our Cowboy Poetry contest in celebration of Cowboy Poetry Week this week, and in our minds, y'all are winners, but one poem was a standout and really captured the essence of what (we feel) this genre is all about.

    The grand prize winner is Glen Enloe of Independence, Missouri (the Queen City of the Trails and heart of Jesse James country). Glen is a former country real estate advertising writer and graphic artist. He's been writing for nearly 45 years and has had two free verse collections plus four cowboy poetry books published, including his newest: No One Knows Where the Longhorn GoesContinue reading
