Meet Marshall

Growing up in Central Texas, I became passionate about music while listening to radio programs and the live music concerts of traveling opry shows that came to town. My first guitar was a birthday present at age 13. It wasn't long before I began writing my own songs, later leading to a traveling troubadour lifestyle that carried me across the country and back, performing at festivals, fairs, concerts and clubs. I was gifted with many new friends I met along the way. Settling in Northwest Arkansas, I entertain at public and private events and continue to write songs based on my dreams and a life full of experiences.

Adult Performances

Available for public or private events of any size.

My performances are a conglomerate of original songs and cover tunes that shadow my life experiences. Depending on the setting and audience, I am able to mix genres to satisfy a wide range of musical tastes, including classic country, folk songs, homespun blues, love songs, light rock from 50's to 70's, dance tunes, and a sprinkling of comedy and stories. There is always something for everyone!

Music For Kids

Available for public or private events of any size.

I have performed for over 60,000 children and it never gets old! My Cowboy Music For Kids shows are fun, interactive, and educational. I have a passion for empowering children to incorporate positive character traits (the cowboy code) into their daily lives. Each performance will entertain and educate, emphasizing friendship, self-esteem, and good character traits.

I was also part of a special project, Clean Water Raingers, for a local watershed organization, including the writing of watershed songs and stories and performing concerts at schools and events
