Johnny Western is a true living legend, not only in radio, but television, recordings and the silver screen as well. He is truly the last of the silver screen cowboys and we are delighted he is on our team at AM 1070-THE RANCH.

In November-2001, Johnny Western received the ultimate honor for a Cowboy Singer and Cowboy Movie/Television Personality. He was inducted into the Western Music Association Hall of Fame, where he joins all his heroes like Gene Autry, Roy Rogers, Rex Allen and the like. What a tribute for a man who has given over fifty years of his life to the Cowboy Culture in America.

In March, 2003, Johnny received "The Cowboy Spirit of the West" award from The National Festival of the West in Scottsdale, Arizona. The theme in 2003 was "Balladeers of the West," and Johnny Western is the perfect choice for this great honor. He was honored in 2004 the the Western Swing Music Society of Kansas "Hall of Fame" Award.

Johnny is still out there working Country Music shows and Cowboy events all across the USA. Listen to his show for dates and venues. When Johnny relates a story about his country music friends, you can rest assured he has lived it.
