Cowboy Balladeer Tom Hiatt can truly be called a "Son of the West,"
because at one time or another, Texas, California, Alaska, Kansas, and Arizona,
have all been called "Home." The magnificent landscapes and the people
who settled them fill the stories in the ballads Tom writes and sings: tales of
cowboys, outlaws, lawmen, pioneers, wild broncos, and more.
Tom's warm, emotion filled voice has enthralled people
from Montana to Arizona, from the Rockies to the Smokies, and all areas in
between. He has appeared with other popular cowboy singers and poets such as Ian
Tyson, Chris LeDoux, Waddie Mitchell, The Sons of the San Joaquin, Don Edwards,
and Sourdough Slim at many venues throughout the country.

His engagements have included TV and radio programs, rodeos, schools,
universities, museums, dinner theaters, and guest ranches. The Autry National
Center, Olaf Wieghorst Western Heritage Days, the Carson City Rendezvous, and
the Museum of Lone Pine Film History are just a few of the noteworthy venues
where Tom has performed. He has been
interviewed on the NBC Nightly News and has also sung the National Anthem at a
Major League Baseball game. For over 17 years, Tom, along with his band, THE
SUNDOWN RIDERS, performed for thousands of guests at
"Rawhide," Arizona's famous western theme park.

Headlining at Wild Western Festival in Glendale, Arizona
Tom's repertoire includes traditional and contemporary western classics that are
always a "hit" with audiences from all walks of life. They especially
enjoy Tom's original ballads that have been inspired by his own cowboying
experiences, as well as those of other cowboys he has been proud to call his
friends through the years.
So, in the words of one of Tom's songs...

Let the show begin
Let's put those "Rough Ridin' Cowboy Heroes"
Back in the saddle again!
