Chuck Pyle
Chuck Pyle Chuck Pyle's performance is a ride down some trails less traveled, a touching and hilarious celebration of an American original and his take on making the best of a musical life. One of Chuck's favorite quotes is, "Always ride the horse in the direction it's going," and when reviewers named him the "Zen Cowboy", he took the nickname to heart, shaving his head and blending his upbeat perspective with old-fashioned horse sense. He mixes catchy melodies with straight-from-the-saddle poetry, quoting bumper stickers, proverbs, world leaders and old cowboys with a modern Will Rogers wit. Pyle has released eleven albums and has written songs covered by such artists as Jerry Jeff Walker, Tish Hinojosa, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Suzy Bogguss and Chris LeDoux.
