Cowboy Poet Waddie Mitchell

April 18, 2015

Cowboy poet Waddie Mitchell was honored with a Walk of Western Stars induction ceremony on Main Street in Old Town Newhall. Named “America’s Best Known Cowboy Poet” by People Magazine, Mitchell helped organize the first Elko Cowboy Poetry Gathering in 1984, and has since performed for audiences internationally. From his earliest days on the remote Nevada ranches where his father worked, Mitchell was immersed in the cowboy way of entertaining, and the art of spinning tales in rhyme and meter that came to be called cowboy poetry, a Western tradition that is as rich as the lifestyle that created it.
