Biographical / Historical

Tim Graham sings about the things he knows and loves. He spent his childhood on a farm in the Midwest, where his family raised purebred Angus and Angus Hereford cross and did custom hay baling. Tim’s deep respect for land and animals led him to begin training horses in the late seventies. He loved cowboy music all his life, and soon began playing and singing both traditional and contemporary cowboy and western music as well as reciting classic and contemporary poetry. He began writing his own poetry in 1997. His poetry is based on his personal feelings as wells as events in his life. Tim’s music and poetry were heard on stations in Oklahoma, Texas, and California. He also performed regularly at various cowboy gatherings and state parks throughout Texas and Oklahoma.
