Claude: Claude: R J Vandygriff ''The Cowboy Aint Dead Yet''

July 6, 2013 - 7:30pm to 10:00pm

R.J. Vandygriff from Lipscomb, Texas is an award winning singer, songwriter, poet, actor, and a real cowboy-- not a honky-tonk Hollywood wannabe. He has performed from coast to coast in America along with appearances in Canada and Europe. R.J. had a small recurring role as ''Ranger Mike'' for seven years in the hit CBS series ''Walker, Texas Ranger,'' and has appeared in numerous regional and national commercials along with a couple of movies. As a singer he has shared the stage with the biggest names in country music, pop, and rock and roll. His touring offerings include ''The Cowboy Ain't Dead Yet!'', a one man, one act musical comedy about the most fascinating character to ever ride across the pages of history: the American Cowboy. Joe Texas tells the true story of the cowboy from the 1860s to today through songs, poems, and stories. R.J.'s Cowboy 101 program is concert/lecture on the life of the cowboy. R.J. also offers a cowboy concert of cowboy songs, poems, and stories.
