Oklahoma carries on an incredible tradition of cowboy culture today, in great thanks to its deep roots in Old West history. It hosts many of our favorite events each year, like the Western Heritage Awards, and some that are held close to our hearts, like this April’s 20th anniversary of the Oklahoma City bombing.
