Tom's original song "Bronc to Breakfast" won the Academy of Western Artists 2011 "Will Rogers Cowboy Award" for Best Western Song of the Year. It was recorded on his Lucky Horse Records CD  "Appaloosa Moon" in 2009. That CD ranked #1 on the Western Music Association's Album Charts for all of the 1st quarter of 2010. (See Awards and Media Page) Tom's show repertoire includes traditional classics and contemporary western songs that are always a "hit" with audiences from all walks of life. They especially enjoy Tom's original ballads, such as the above mentioned "Bronc to Breakfast," 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...

                                                   A Biography

     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; stories of working cowboys, wild broncs, historic legendary characters, changes happening in today's modern West, 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, Rusty Richards, and Sourdough Slim at many venues throughout the
country.
