Tom Hiatt

Cowboy Balladeer Tom Hiatt can truly be called a "Son of the West", because at one time or another, Texas, California, Alaska, Kansas, and Arizona, have all been called "Home." The magnificent landscapes and the people who settled them fill the stories in the ballads Tom writes and sings: tales of cowboys, outlaws, lawmen, pioneers, wild broncos, and more.

Tom's warm, emotion filled voice has enthralled people from Montana to Arizona, from the Rockies to the Smokies, and all areas in between. He has appeared with other popular cowboy singers and poets such as Ian Tyson, Chris LeDoux, Waddie Mitchell, The Sons of the San Joaquin, Wally McCrae, and Don Edwards, at many venues throughout the country.

His engagements have included TV and radio programs, rodeos, schools, universities, museums, dinner theaters, and guest ranches. He has been interviewed on the NBC Nightly News and has also sung the National Anthem at a Major League Baseball game. During the past 14 years, Tom, along with his band, The Sundown Riders, has performed for thousands of guests at "Rawhide," Arizona's famous western theme park.
