The National Festival of the West is gong on this weekend at Westworld in Scottsdale, but I will not be attending this one. It has a star-studded lineup including Larry Gatlin and the Gatlin Brothers, the New Pioneers, Crosstown Cowboys, and other musical groups. And a great lineup of celebrities signing autographs and goods for sale, and the Buffalo Soldiers, Arizona Gunfighters, Poets, Chuckwagon Cooking, Mountain Men, and all that good stuff. There weill be several TV and Movie Actors there including Clint Black, John Saxon, Ed Faulkner, Dan Haggerty, and others. Among the authors will be Rusty Richards, John Conley, Becky Burgoyne and others.
And a good time will be had by all and one of them will receive the Cowboy Spirit Award.
