- - Wylie Gustafson's performing career began in his teens. His break came when his band, Wylie & The Wild West, appeared on Ronnie Mack's Barn Dance at The Palomino Club in North Hollywood, which helped them secure a record deal. That done, he moved to Dusty, Washington, where he established the Cross Three Quarter Horse Ranch. Wylie remains a full-time cutting horse trainer and competitor, as well as a full-time musician. He has recorded over fifteen albums, and has played thousands of venues around the world, including more than fifty appearances on The Grand Ole Opry. He has also been a guest on Late Night With Conan O'Brien and on Garrison Keillor's A Prairie Home Companion.
- - Paul Zarzyski has spent fifteen seasons as a bareback bronco rider on the amateur, pro, and senior circuits. This experience has infused his poetry with rodeo images and lingo. He is the recipient of the 2005 Montana Governor's Arts Award for Literature. His books have won a Western Heritage award for poetry from The National Cowboy Hall of Fame, and a Spur Award from The Western Writers of America. In addition to his eight collections of printed work, he has recorded four spoken-word CDs. In 1987, he was invited to the third annual National Cowboy Poetry Gathering in Elko, Nevada, where he's performed every year since, and where he crossed trails with Wylie Gustafson.
