Barry Corbin inducted in the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame

News from writer and filmmaker Shannan Keenan

TRAIL END star Barry Corbin is one of six new honorees to be inducted in the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame, alongside actor Tommy Lee Jones and other notable Texans. Inclusion into Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame is the highest honor bestowed on individuals who have shown excellence in competition, business, and support of rodeo and the western lifestyle in Texas.

In addition to being named an inductee, Barry will receive the Rick Smith Spirit of Texas Award. The Spirit of Texas Award was established to recognize those individuals whose lives and accomplishments epitomize the independence, individuality, and innovative thinking associated with being Texan. In August, 2004 the award was renamed in honor of country music promoter Rick Smith, whose vision helped spread the “sound and spirit of Texas” around the world.

Barry has personally selected TRAIL END as one of his notable film roles to be featured at the 2009 Induction Ceremony. The Induction Ceremony is the premiere event prior to the Fort Worth Stock Show and attracts celebrities, politicians, and distinguishable members of the community.

The Induction Ceremony will take place January 15 at the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame in Fort Worth, Texas. For more information, please visit: Texas Hall of Fame
