Jim Wilson

Alpine, Texas

Born in Austin and raised in San Antonio, Jim served as a Texas peace officer for nearly 30 years and retired as the sheriff of Crockett County in 1996. Since his teens, Jim has rodeoed, team roped and worked on area ranches.

“I’ve always tried to keep at least one good horse and make a hand at cowboy chores,” Jim says. He began playing while attending Texas Christian University, but his earliest memories are of his father singing the old cowboy songs like “Leaving Cheyenne” and “Streets of Laredo.”
