The Kingwood Kowboy is a prolific lyrics writer who focuses his talents on classic and vintage style Country, Cowboy and Western songs.

Many of his lyrics have been recorded by professional artists such as Chicago’s Marc Blackwell (Forgotten Down That Lost Highway and Midnight Zephyr), Nashville artists Emo Leblanc and Mike Bryant (Walkin’ In Hank Williams Shoes, Lady of Laredo, Eighty Miles From San Antone), Lloyd Morris (Lonesome Buckaroo) and others.
