Red Steagall, Trent Wilmon and Joanna Smith headline Montana Cowboy Hall of Fame benefit concert Dec. 3

Bill Brewster

When the legendary singer Red Steagall appears at Copper Spring Ranch on Dec. 3 with Nashville recording artists Trent Willmon and Joanna Smith, the benefit concert is going to be far more than just another musical gig.

The trio is appearing at this Quarter Horse ranch’s heated indoor arena, west of Bozeman, MT, as a way to use music to celebrate our Western way of life, according to Montana Cowboy Hall of Fame and Western Heritage Center’s Aaron Lyles.

The star-studded concert is being held to benefit both the Montana Cowboy Hall of Fame and the Western Heritage Center and the Montana FFA Foundation. Along with the actual concert, Western music fans have the opportunity to purchase Christmas gift items from a number of vendors.

“Music plays a unique and important role in our western heritage,” Lyles said. “It also serves as a common language that speaks to people from any number of backgrounds. Though each of the artists [are] unique and comes from different backgrounds, each can communicate the need to preserve and pass forward this way of life through music.”

Lyles said a large part of a Montanan’s understanding of “who we are” is rooted to the ideals of family, community, hospitality and integrity.

“When you hear Red, Trent or Joanna sing, they don’t have to directly speak to those values in order to communicate them to the audience,” Lyles noted. “Through the universal understanding of our heritage, people can share an understanding of why the Montana Cowboy Hall of Fame exists and shows the need to ensure that the traditions of our fathers and mothers are passed on to future generations.”
