28th Annual National Cowboy Poetry Gathering February 1-4, 2012 - Elko Nevada
I recently got the privilege of seeing my favorite Cowboy Poet, 2010 Academy of Western Artists Male Poet of the Year, Ken Cook perform one of his newer poems, Diet and Exercise at the Arizona Cowboy Poets Gathering in Prescott, AZ. He may be performing this one and I’m sure he will share many more of his amazing creations with everyone at the 28th Annual National Cowboy Poetry Gathering, February 1-4, 2012 - Elko Nevada.
I thought since the Holidays are quickly approaching and an incredible number of people will be thinking about starting the new year with some Diet and Exercise goals of their own; that I would share a video of 2010 Academy of Western Artists Male Poet of the Year, Ken Cook performing Diet and Exercise.
This particular video is from Ken Cook’s performance at the Badger Clark Cowboy Poetry and Music Gathering, September 24, 2011 in Hot Springs, South Dakota.
Ken Cook spends his days ranching and writing in South Dakota. He has gathered cattle out of tough country, saddled up on many a dark morning, and been run over by an embarrassing number of mama cows. The Cook crew—Ken and Nancy and their four ranch-raised cowhands—worked and played side by side through diapers to adulthood. Nancy is pretty sure Ken will never grow up!
Ken has recorded three spoken-word CDs that you can order by clicking here: Dad, We'll Rope Today, I'm Gonna Be a Cowboy, and his latest, Cowboys Are Like That.Cowboys Are Like That is receiving grand reviews and radio airplay around the world," says Joe Baker, AWA disc jockey of the year. "Ken is the real deal cowboy poet."
