The world’s top-selling cowboy poet, Baxter Black, will return to perform at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City on March 20.
He will bring his unique humor of everyday cowboy life to the Museum’s Sam Noble Special Events Center for one-night-only performance. Famous for his cowboy hat and mustache, Black has entertained since 1982 and has become a nationally recognized cowboy poet, appearing before millions on shows ranging from the “Tonight Show” and National Public Radio to performances at the National Finals Rodeo. Black has written more than a dozen books and has more than 17 audio and video productions under that cowboy hat. He performs about 80 shows a year and is a commentator on more than 50 NPR stations. In addition to his singing he is also a columnist in more than 100 newspapers.
Black most recently appeared at the National Cowboy Museum in 2006. New this year is the option for guests to purchase a buffet dinner at the museum restaurant, Dining on Persimmon Hill, with preferred seating for the concert. Dinner is available by reservation only and begins at 5 p.m. Museum members can purchase the combination meal and show for $50; nonmembers are $55.
The performance begins at 7 p.m. Admission is $25 for museum members and $30 for nonmembers.
