Listen In, Lubbock: The mythos of the Texas cowboy
The Hub City feels more urban each day. Still, we pride ourselves on what some call rugged individualism that goes back to our agricultural and ranching roots. Cowboys and Western culture are a big part of West Texas’ identity - and likely always will be.
Christian Wallace is originally from Andrews in the oil patch part of our state. He’s now a writer for Texas Monthly and frequently reports on the mythos of the Texas cowboy. He joins us to talk about his work, including a feature story in the June issue of Texas Monthly that’s about a reluctantly legendary cowpuncher at the Four Sixes Ranch.
