Press Kit

Loving the public speaking scene and bitten by the speaking bug, Floyd has presented poems, western songs and stories to countless programs, banquets, gatherings and events, all around Colorado and many other surrounding states, and as far away as Stoney Plains, Alberta Canada. Mostly using his own poems, Floyd has also honored the history of the cowboy and rancher by reciting the classics handed down by the masters over the years.


Floyd’s poetry is about his own experiences and his observations of the western way of life. Floyd’s stories are inter-woven with his western code of high ethics and integrity and sprinkled richly with humor. His philosophy is simple: “Life is a journey not a destination, and is best viewed from atop a good horse.”


He has presented from the Mexico border to Stony Plains, Alberta, Canada and has been a main stage presenter at numerous Gatherings including the Arizona Cowboy Poetry Gathering in Prescott, AZ.


Floyd was the Western Music Association (WMA) Colorado Chapter President for three years. He also spent those three years winning many cowboy poetry awards in the U.S.A. including the National Cowboy Poetry Rodeo Silver Buckle winner in 2016, the 2016 Shoot Out Champion in Abilene, KS, and the Western Music Association 2016 Male Poet of the Year. His poem, "Ain't a Hermit" was selected as Best Western Poem for 2016 by the Western Writers Association and was awarded the Spur Award.


Floyd has three CDs. His most recent CD, "Short Grass Country" has been on the Western Music Association's list of Most Played Poetry CD's for the final quarter in 2016 and first quarter in 2017, placing #1 and #3.
