John Wayne would'a loved it! The smell of breakfast cookin' on the campfire, horses nickerin' in the rope corral, spurs softly ringin' and a cowboy longin' for the girl he left behind. A warm, rich voice, skillful pickers and some great lyrical ballads. Note: The song "Bronc to Breakfast" won the 2011 Academy of Western Artists Will Rogers Award for Best Western Song.

Cowboy Balladeer Tom Hiatt is a nationally known western entertainer and songwriter who has performed to enthusiastic audiences across America. He was recently voted “one of the top 10 acts in western music” by the Western Music Association.
The Kamloops BC Cowboy Festival, the Carson City Rendezvous, the Lone Pine Film Festival, and the Tombstone Western Music Festival, are just a few of the noteworthy venues where Tom and his band “The Sundown Riders,” have “Headlined.” His latest Lucky Horse Records CD, “Appaloosa Moon,” almost immediately became the Western Music Association’s #1 CD of Winter 2010. In its April – May, 2011, issue, American Cowboy Magazine said, “We think Appaloosa Moon (CD) is poised to became a modern cowpoke classic.”
If you enjoy the western musical styles of Marty Robbins, Ian Tyson, or Red Steagall, this is an artist you dare not miss. Noted western music critic Rick Huff, of “Best of the West” Reviews, says, “Frisky is generally the kind of word you would use to maybe describe a colt... or a puppy, perhaps. Come to think of it you may spot both in the bouncing, wriggling enthusiasm of a Tom Hiatt performance!” Time spent listening to Cowboy Balladeer Tom Hiatt is guaranteed to bring a smile to the face and warmth to the soul of anyone who loves the great American West.
