The Buckaroo Balladeers

Nashville Recording Artist, The Buckaroo Balladeers, cut their trails in the West Desert of Utah.... Their brand of Western Music and Cowboy Entertainment is as free and unbridled as the Wild Horses that they share that great land with.

J.C., nominated twice for Male Vocalist of the Year by the Academy of Western Artists, grew up cowboy’n on family ranches and has spent some time riding bulls and bareback buckin’ horses in Europe.

Sonja spent her early years on the back of some fine, European dressage horses. Together for more than 35 years now, they own a small horse ranch and are one of Western Music’s premier husband/wife duos.

From up beat, wild and wooly Cowboy Songs, to deep and meaningful Western Ballads... The Buckaroo Balladeers are deeply rooted in the Cowboy lifestyle and live it every day. Through their music, they will conjure up visions of ridin’ rank horses, ropin’ with 60 foot riatas, hot iron brandin’ and may even jerk at your heartstrings a bit. Many of the songs they perform are originals which were inspired by past experiences as a working cowboy, rodeo cowboy, ranch owners, horse lovers, bovine psychologist and human beings. Their music is not only known across the U.S., but in Canada, Australia and throughout Europe, as well. They are proud members of the Western Music Association and The Academy of Western Artists.

Folks, we invite you to sit back...take a deep seat...and get ready to be entertained...The Buckaroo Way!
