Please tell us about how you are associated with or involved in the cowboy church/ministry community.
www.BillBeatyMusic.com - Bill Beaty hails from Cheyenne, Oklahoma and started writing and recording Christian country music in the mid 80's. Raised on a cattle ranch, Bill started rodeoing at an early age and rode saddle broncs and bulls in college and professionally. And because of a strong Christian upbringing, it was a natural fit for Bill to start ministering to the cowboy community across the country. Bill's traveled many miles doing concerts and cowboy churches across Oklahoma, Texas, and New Mexico as well as many trips across Wyoming and neighboring states. Bill's written and recorded several albums. His first ones were completed in Oklahoma, and the latter ones were recorded in various Nashville studios. Bill's been blessed to have several well known musicians and background singers contribute to his soundtracks. Aside from his own success as an artist, Susie McEntire, as well as several other artists have recorded his songs. Bill recently returned to Nashville to record his sixth album of songs that address the times that we live in today. Bill and his wife, Renee, were married in 1973 and they have three children, Carey, Casey and Taylor. In the early days he was a school teacher and coach in Oklahoma and Texas for 14 years. After that, he started Rockin' B Bucking Machines, Inc., where he, also for 14 years, oversaw the development and production of a new style of mechanical bull. Rockin' B bulls were marketed all across the U.S. and to many countries around the world. The bulls were used for rodeo training by top cowboys such as Ty Murray but also used for entertainment purposes by artists such as Brooks and Dunn and Brad Paisley, etc. Today, Bill feels it's time to spread the good news of Jesus Christ through music or however God leads. He believes that the only hope for America and the world is repentance before God and revival. And in these end times as Christian religious freedoms decrease and the evil of the new world order increases, it's time for Christians to take a stand for their faith and fully prepare for the challenges that lie ahead.
