Brenn sings a familiar tune. Brenn Hill sings "One Empty Cot in the Bunkhouse" by Red Steagall during the "Georgie, Pat, Jess, and Elizabeth: Classic Poems + Tales" show at the 35th National Cowboy Poetry Gathering.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
For more than three decades, Brenn Hill has stood under a cowboy hat and behind a microphone on countless stages blending his voice with bending guitar strings in a performance style all his own. He uses lyrical language to peel back the layers of life in the West to reveal a deeper, more meaningful, more affective, more effective, understanding of modern agriculture. Brenn is far from the dispassionate, steely-eyed cowboy of legend. He lays bare in his music a willingness to set aside the fiction of cowboy stoicism and wear his heart out on his chest. His latest work, "Horses of War," is his 17th studio recording. Brenn’s catalog is a journey into the hearts of the agrarians of the Great American West. And it took many a wet saddle blanket to build the carefully crafted insight.
