Important Update: Cody Johnson Unable to Perform; Red Steagall and Trent Willmon to Take the Stage

From Jim Bret Campbell, Executive Director of the Ranching Heritage Association

October 31, 2023


Due to acute illness, Cody Johnson has lost his voice and is unable to perform at the National Golden Spur Award Honors. Cody sends his best to the award recipients and his regrets at not being able to attend in person.

CMA Award Winner Trent Willmon

The National Golden Spur Award Honors will continue to highlight the best of the ranching industry with 2023 National Golden Spur Honoree Craig Haythorn and Ranching Heritage Association Working Cowboy Award recipient Jimbo Humphreys. Fortunately, Cody’s producer and Country Music Association award winner and performer, Trent Willmon, has agreed to share the stage with ranching legend Red Steagall and the Boys in the Bunkhouse.

There will continue to be good eating and an open bar to kick off the evening during the reception.

No doubt it will still be a night of celebrating the ranching lifestyle and our ranching heritage.
