What We're Hearing About "The Cowboy Ain't Dead Yet"

This Texas cowboy takes you from Lipscomb to Dalhart in this tribute to the American Cowboy. The powerful songs come from a one man, one act musical that Vandygriff performs and they are very much a story of ranching, rodeoing, and cowboying. A collection that is an absolute keeper. I can recommend this one without reservation.

Our audience at Theatre Victoria absolutely loved ’The Cowboy Ain’t Dead Yet’." Response was literally 100% positive after the show with the singular question being, "When is the Cowboy coming back?". We’ll make sure that happens next year!

R.J. Vandygriff portrays the American cowboy with talent and authenticity; he can write, sing and he’s the real thing!

“Robert Joe Vandygriff is one part Gene Autry, one part Will Rogers, and one part Zig Ziglar.” 

Dallas Morning News

"The best one man show since Churchill swam the English Channel. The best show I've EVER seen!"

Baxter Black

Renowned Cowboy Poet & Authur

In these days where it’s hard to find movies and programming with good messages and content suitable for the entire family, it was great to see The Cowboy Ain’t Dead Yet at our theater.  The show was touching, funny and R J sang wonderful classic Cowboy songs. This show is worth the money and most of all: the time.”

“R. J. Vandygriff is a class act.  But, he’s not acting.  The charismatic cowboy you see on stage is the real man.”    

D. A. Calloway, Entertainment Director

Silver Dollar City-Branson MO

“R.J.’s performance was the talk of the town, his performance was a fast paced scenario of cowboy history and the audience loved it.  He is a hero for our western heritage; the man and his message are first class, both professionally and personally.”
