Red Steagall brings the cowboy way of life to the public through many different media, including poetry. His poetry speaks in its own right, possessing a musical, songlike quality. His lilting rhythms carry the reader through the journey that each poem represents. Steagall’s poems chart the changing of the land and the passing of generations, but they rest on the solid ground of a steady faith.


Red Steagall spent eight years as a music industry executive in California before deciding to dedicate himself to a career in recording, songwriting, television, and film that has spanned thirty-six years and has taken him around the globe. He was named the Official Cowboy Poet of Texas in 1991 and was inducted in the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame in 2004. A five-time winner of the Wrangler Award for original music from the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum, he was inducted into the Museum’s Hall of Great Westerners in 2003. Steagall conducts business from Fort Worth.
