Cowboy balladeer Buck Shannon to perform at Frontier Times Museum


From Gene Autry to Roy Rogers, typical cowboy singers, clean-shaven and wearing white hats, evoke nights of sitting around campfires, singing about the hardships of life on cattle trails and loves they left behind. In this tradition, local cowboy Buck Shannon describes himself as a Cowboy Balladeer. Most weekends he can be found entertaining guests at the Flying L Ranch, but on Saturday, Sept. 23, he brings his music to the Frontier Times Museum from 1 to 2 pm.
After shoeing horses for almost 40 years in South Texas and the Hill Country, Buck has settled in at the Flying L Ranch, doing what he loves—sitting around the campfire, singing and telling stories of days long past. Surrounded by the Frontier Times Museum’s western art collection, Buck will be performing traditional cowboy songs such as “A Cowboy's Life,” “Ghost Riders,” “My Rifle-My Pony,” and many more in the museum’s Doane Western Art Gallery.
