Following on the heels of the popular Happy Trails Newspaper, the all new “Cowboy Troubadour” magazine Is hot off the press covering the Western Entertainment Industry from coast to coast.

Each issue will profile some of the best and brightest acts in the industry. The premier issue features Wylie and the Wild West and Utah performers Stampede! and Don Kennington, plus reports from gatherings around the West. Toe Tappin' Tommy Tucker reviews some of the latest CDs and rates the top cowboy songs, poems and CDs of 2005. Commentaries are provided by Rick Huff and Jeri Dobrowski.

With each issue, we’ll spin a few yarns, rhyme a few lines and let you know what is going on in the world of Western Entertainment. Contributors on board include Smoke Wade, Toe Tappin’ Tommy Tucker, Kathy and Charlie Camden, Howard Norskog, Margo Metegrano, Jeri Dobrowski, Rick Huff, Clark Crouch, Vic Anderson, Mike Puhallo and Woody Woodruff (so far, more to sign on soon).

Cowboy Troubadour is available by subscription to musicians and poets, promoters, publishers and the friends and fans of the industry. The magazine will also be freely distributed at the places where the devotees of Western Entertainment gather, so don’t be surprised to see it in Branson or Nashville, Ft Worth or Kamloops or anywhere the West lives.
