Lone Star Country Nights recently spoke with Cowboy R. J. Vandygriff about the Cowboy Code and his touring cowboy show.
R. J. Vandygriff is an award winning singer/songwriter, playwright and actor not to mention a pretty darn good cowboy. He’s at home on a stage, in front of a camera or horseback in the big pasture. R.J. grew up riding horses and strumming a guitar, competed in Saddlebronc and Bareback as well as working as a rodeo clown and bullfighter. He is one of those performers who “creates” a moment when he steps to the microphone.R.J. has appeared on stage with George Strait, Garth Brooks, Alabama, The Judds, George Jones, Merle Haggard, Moe Bandy, Jerry Lee Lewis, Fats Domino, Andy Williams, The Sons of the Pioneers, Red Steagall, Michael Martin Murphy and Baxter Black just to name a few.
Some performers sing the songs, R.J. has lived them. He lives his life by the cowboy code on and off the stage. He earned his spurs and has the scars to prove it.
