Ray Owens has performed all over the southwestern United States,
and has been a featured performer at the following gatherings and events:
"At a time when the Western culture is being replaced and forgotten in many quarters,
it is wise to keep it alive. Ray Owens brings it to life and touches the lives of many
while doing so through his personal and humorous poetry."
"Ray's fellow cowboy poets at any gathering can attest to his outstanding creative
"Ray delivers a great poem whether he is reciting one of his own insightful
and well-written poems or one of the old time classics. He entertains and
thrills his audiences. When he does 'I'd Like to be in Texas When They Roundup in The Spring,'
you smell the fire, you see and hear the men, horses, and cows, and you want to be there, too. "
"As a performer of cowboy poetry and music myself, I meet a lot of talented
people. In my opinion, Ray Owens is right up there at the top! His poetry is well crafted,
in fact, one might say, 'honed to perfection'. It covers the gamut from tears to laughter.
His delivery is straight forward, unaffected, sincere. In addition, to all that, Ray sings
the great old cowboy songs the way they were surely intended, and is a true western gentleman
in every sense of the word. "
