I love it when a customer writes in to tell us how much they love the purchase that they made. We value every one of our customers and love to hear from them. Even cooler…when one of those customers is a musician who wears our clothing on stage! Last week we got an e-mail from Sonny Tackett. He told us that in addition to playing all over the world, he also is a songwriter who has had many hits by an assortment of artist, and has had fifty eight of his songs covered by signed artists like Gary Stewart, Tommy Overstreet and Michael Allman. Very cool. He wears many of the brands we carry including Stetson, Panhandle Slim, Nocona and Tony Lama. He even shared a picture…
This is from a festival called Hillbilly Days in Pikeville Ky that he recently played. You can find Sonny on his Facebook page and soon on his Summer Tour.
Thanks Sonny. It was great to hear from you!

I wanted to share with you guys exciting news from Ariat about Quincy…
“Ariat’s very own Quincy from the Quincy Collection won an exciting title this week on the college rodeo circuit!!! We are proud to congratulate her on winning the All Around Cowgirl at the 71st annual 2011 Poly Royal Rodeo. The all around award is the most prestigious title a woman can win with college rodeo- out of all the women competing she accumulated the most points in all of her events. She competes in barrel racing, breakaway roping, team roping, and goat tying. Quincy competed this weekend in the Holy Rose, Nevada Lily, and Bronco Billie boots!! Quincy is well on her way to qualifying for this year’s National College Rodeo finals.”
Wow! Way to go!!!! And speaking of that Quincy Collection…here is a preview of the styles we will be carrying…
The Women’s boot features a premium full-grain leather foot and shaft, Goodyear® leather welt and leather lining. The eclectic design combines screen print, studs and Swarovski crystals. This boot will be available late August/Early September for $349.97.
