Colt Blankman started performing cowboy poetry at the age of 8 in a kid’s poetry contest at the Cache Valley Cowboy Rendezvous.  Now, almost 18, Colt has had the opportunity to travel and share poetry at different venues around the country these past 10 years.  In addition to sharing cowboy poetry, he loves to shoot, hunt, forge, weld, and work on old trucks.  He is a member of the High School Rodeo Association and a 2x qualifier for the High School National Finals.  He was honored to be the Rod McQuery and Sue Wallis Scholarship recipient and an invited performer at the 2019 National Cowboy Poetry Gathering in Elko.  He released his second poetry CD  titled ‘Wagon Train’ in 2021 and it debuted at number five for the  most played poetry album on the western charts.  Colt was a nominee for the Liz Masterson Crescendo Award by the International Wester Music Association in  2021, 2022, and 2023 and for Cowboy Poetry CD of the Year by the International Music Association in 2021.
