Yep, you heard it right. Baxter Black is hanging up his hat from his hectic schedule of performances. Here is what his website says, “Baxter will be taking a hiatus from speaking appearances beginning April 1, 2015. The column, radio program, RFD TV, U.S. Farm Report, sponsor commitments, commercials (audio or video), and book/CD/DVD production and marketing will continue uninterrupted. Reason: Health is good, just 'takin' a break'!”
According to the New York Times, Baxter is the “nation’s most famous cowboy poet.”
He will perform on Saturday, April 4, 2015, in the Limelight Room at the Sun Valley Resort in Sun Valley, Idaho. It will be a benefit for the Trailing of the Sheep Festival. Tickets will go on sale later in the year.
