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...
