Each year we round up artists who not only portray western legends on film but who are western legends themselves. Without these hard-working men and women our eyes never would have been opened to both the rugged and romantic side of the Wild West. The landscape of the West speaks to us, but these actors give it a voice. Something that sets our modern Legends apart from the characters they portray is that after the film director says “Cut!”, instead of riding off into the sunset, they continue to face the same challenges that many of us do. They have homes, families, infirmities, and many demands for their time.
Sometimes conflicts in scheduling or personal matters prevent our Legends from attending the Western Legends Roundup every year. Their love of Kanab and the love for their fans keeps them coming back to Utah as often as possible.
