I have exciting news to share with everyone. My collection of audio interviews, photos, meet and greet passes, Frontier Editions, articles, autographs, ticket stubs and autographed cowboy hats from over 21 years of covering Cheyenne Frontier Days as an entertainment reporter has been accepted as a collection into the Cheyenne Frontier Days Old West Museum.
The collection includes entertainers such as Chris LeDoux and the Western Underground, Ned LeDoux, The Judds, Taylor Swift, Kenny Chesney, Blake Shelton, Clint Black, Merle Haggard, Journey, Lady A, and many, many more. It also includes interviews with the U.S. Air Force Thunderbird Pilots, photos of the Thunderbirds and one trip in particular that country star Chris Cagle took with the amazing pilots!
The CFD Old West Museum is partnering with the University of Wyoming American Heritage Center to share audio files of interviews in the Heritage Center’s Karen Cotton collection. In the future the CFD items will be on display for the public at the CFD Old West Museum. Stories about these items will be in my memoir that I am hoping will come out in 2021 or 2022.
