Gary Prescott

Ovalo, Texas

Raised on the family ranch near Bryan, Texas, Gary grew up helping with the cow/calf operation and working in the family hay fields in the summertime. As an adult, Gary worked cattle in the deep South Texas brush and now runs a small cow/calf operation south of Abilene, Texas.

Gary’s songs have been recorded by artists throughout the United States and Canada and his song “Fair Blows the Wind,” sung beautifully by wife, Jean, received top cowboy song of the year honors with the Academy of Western Artists in 2005. The song was then recorded by a recording artist from Ireland.

After retiring from his “real” job in 2013, Gary continues to keep the ranching tradition alive south of Abilene, where he and Jean run a small cow/calf operation.
