Jimmy Don Cox

Jimmy Don Cox

He's a cowboy, fine artist, singer/musician, Viet Nam Veteran as a U.S. Navy Gunner's Mate, airplane pilot, actor, poet, former deputy sheriff, and a ten year veteran of the Ben Johnson Pro-Celebrity Rodeo events.... sort of makes one wonder if Jimmy Don Cox has yet to figure out what he wants to be when he grows up, doesn't it? In the late 1980's, Jimmy Don was discovered by Hollywood and he added another medium to his list of talents. Having done live appearances as a singer/musician, he began appearing as an Actor in Movies and Television. Some of his acting credits include "The Young Riders", "Gunsmoke", "Return to Tombstone", "The Good Ol' Boys" and several commercials.

Dirk Peterson

Dirk Peterson

Dirk's career as an artist started out on shaky ground when, as he explains, “I got kicked out of 4th grade math for drawing horses on tests”. Since that time his work has appeared in Western Horseman, Dally Times, Super Looper, and on the cover of the Texas Roper for the past 10 years. He is an active member of PRCA and USTRC competing as often as his schedule will allow. His outgoing personality and horsemanship have also landed him in print adds for pickup trucks and men’s cologne as well as stunt/extra roles in several movies and starring roles in the movies “Montgomery’s Last Raid” and “Southern Blue”.
