Cowboys and Campfires originally featured Doc Stovall (1937-2012) and Jim Dunham.

It aired on WBHF AM 1450 in Cartersville, Georgia.

The half-hour show included Western history, Western and cowboy music, and cowboy poetry.

The show ceased airing after the death of Doc Stovall in March, 2012.


Jim Dunham and the late Doc Stovall are associated with the Booth Western Art Museum, which holds two cowboy gatherings each year. The spring event, the annual Southeastern Cowboy Gathering, includes a statewide Youth Cowboy Poetry Contest, opened to students in grades 5 -12, with winners announced for Cowboy Poetry Week  

In the cowboy hats: Jim Hawkins, Doc Stovall, Andy Hedges, and Jim Dunham, with students from the March, 2008 5th Annual Southeastern Cowboy Gathering

See a report on the 2008 gathering here.


The Booth Western Art Museum, an Affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution, is an 80,000 square foot museum located in Cartersville, Georgia, where guests are invited to explore the American West through contemporary Western artwork. The Museum also houses a Presidential Gallery, Civil War art gallery, and Sagebrush Ranch featuring hands-on art activities. Visitors to Booth Museum also enjoy the intimate downtown setting with unique specialty and antique shops, boutiques and nationally featured restaurants all within walking distance of the Museum. Open since August 2003, the Booth Museum is the only museum of its kind in the Southeast and is the second largest art museum in the state of Georgia.
