    Just saw “Everything in the Song is True” and loved it. Found you out through some fellers you likely remember called the ‘Starlite Ramblers’. Met up with them at the back end of the 70’s while visiting a friend at college. Bought all their vinyl and have been singing your song inadvertently ever since. Truly, it became the yardstick I measured all other cowboy music to. I can’t even listen to modern country music but I do still throw in a Ramblers CD (recorded from vinyl) and yodel my way to work. I thank you for your songs and your honest talent. I’m also purchasing some of your music. It’ll be hard singing Dina Rose in a manner other than what Mike Golden laid down all those years ago but I’m willing to learn. And just saying... “What does she see in that old cowboy” takes on a whole new meaning as I can peek over the ridge and see 60! You’re a rich man.

    Gary... I hope next time our horses smell one another I can do you proud on a few of your songs. I feel that you've written not only songs but more so anthems for cowboys of old and new. It means a lot to me that I can share these with my boy and I can only hope that he gets a little taste of the life that you and I have been blessed to have indulged. Cheers amigo. RR

    I so enjoyed all of your performances during the weekend at the Colorado Cowboy Poetry Gathering. It was a unique experience getting to hear your songs Acapella. I wondered if maybe it was causing me to listen more closely to the words of your songs, and it didn't compromise the quality of your incredible yodeling at all. I was thinking the same thing Andy said he and Doris were saying -- "Wow, I was here when he did his Acapella show!" Thanks again for your very professional and entertaining performances all weekend!

    Reading this poem reminds me of hearing Gary recite it way back over 25 years ago. I've always loved Gary's writing and songwriting, and his presentation is as good as it gets. Watching one of Gary's shows, the audience gets several genres of entertainment: Comedy, great cowboy poetry, some of the best authentic cowboy singing and guitar-manship and oh that yodel!! I honestly feel that, if there were an All Around Cowboy Entertainer, it should go to Gary McMahan.
