Brenn does an ode to cowgirls, and to his friend, mentor, champion, and personal hero, Ian Tyson. Brenn Hill covers "Barrel Racing Angel" during the "Ian Tyson Tribute" show at the 35th National Cowboy Poetry Gathering.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Brenn Hill is a singer/songwriter who doesn’t just sing about the West, he reveals its heart to anyone who will take the time to listen. He is not only an observer or narrator of Western lore, but one of its strongest interpreters. The cowboy’s trials and tribulations are his raw material. Brenn’s career spans 12 recordings of mostly self-penned music more than two decades on the road. His most recent release is How You Heal. Like all of his prior recordings, it serves as a pathway through his own personal journey. Brenn is an artist who gives great insight into the West that he calls Heaven. He lives with his wife and three children in Hooper, Utah.
