Adrian awed audiences at the National Cowboy Poetry Gathering for the first time this year with her strong voice and songs of the buckaroo life in Elko County. Adrian has lived and worked on ranches around the West but is particularly nostalgic about the time she spent in Elko County. Her first album was released earlier this year; the songs on Highway 80 are about working cowboys and real events. Adrian currently lives and works on a ranch in Northern California, where she spends her days working, starting colts and building gear in the saddle shop.
