The Real Singing Cowboys profiles contemporary cowboy--and cowgirl--singers and musicians who are, or have been, authentic working cowboys or ranchers, or involved in related occupations tied to ranching and cowboy culture. The book includes over fifty brief biographies and photos of the singers and musicians, including Glenn Ohrlin, Dave Stamey, Wylie Gustafson, and R.W. Hampton. The stories of traditional occupational songs of working cowboys and how that tradition continues in todays world provide context for the contemporary performers included in the book.
These men, women, and children are, or have been, working cowboys, ranchers, packers, and horse trainers, or have deep roots in cowboy and ranching culture that have shaped and informed their music.
