Although the casinos might have put Las Vegas on the world map, there were cowboys in the Nevada desert long before there were casinos -- and where there are cowboys -- you will hear country music. The music, like the hats and boots, goes with the territory. These are not rhinestone cowboys. Nevada cowboys are the genuine article - real, working cowboys.
Las Vegas has always had dance halls like the Gold Coast and Sam's Town where the locals go boot scootin', but with the increasing popularity of country music, the number of casinos with a country western theme is steadily increasing also. More and more country western entertainers are taking their shows to Las Vegas. From the 1st to the 15th of December when the professional cowboys come to town for the National Rodeo Finals, there are probably more country music entertainers in Las Vegas than in Nashville.
This page was developed to provide you with the best links to all things country music, cowboys and casinos in Las Vegas, Mesquite, Laughlin and the surrounding area.
