The cowboy heritage is very strong in Texas and it's very strong in Amarillo. As time moves on, things change, but one thing that remains true is the Cowboy. Now is the time to celebrate the Cowboy on National Day of the Cowboy.
When you live and grow up in Texas you realize that the life of a Cowboy is a big deal. It was the cowboy who helped shape this state. That's why there is a National Day of the Cowboy, it's a day dedicated to honoring the cowboy and the cowboy way of life.
Dave Barnes recently released his Carry On, San Vincente album, which has a noticeable country flair, so the singer-songwriter has taken it upon himself to pass on his expert knowledge about how to be a true cowboy.
When you grow up in Texas one of the things that is certain, at some point in your life you will come across a cowboy. It was the cowboy that helped build this great state, heck it was the cowboy that helped build this country. So when it comes to cowboys there has to be a day to honor them, and that day is coming up on Saturday, July 25th.
