Sam DeLeeuw ..is a very talented LADY! Make no mistake, Sam DeLeeuw knows what she’s talking about. Twenty-plus years a rancher’s wife; she’s herded horses, cows, sheep, and two rodeo queens. In college, she was the only girl in the ag-curriculum and was a popular date because she’d help with the branding.Sam’s background gives her all the ideas for her often humorous, but sometimes tear-evoking, stories. Much of her original poetry is taken from her own family’s genealogy; happenings from day to day life, from people she’s met and the places she’s been.Her honors and awards are too numerous to mention, and include four time “Female Poet of the Year” (2011, 2012, 2013 and 2015) from the Western Music Association, and “Humorist of the Year” from the Academy of Western Artists. Her most treasured rewards are the people she’s met over the years. Those folks have now become some of her closest friends. Raised in Black Foot, Idaho, Sam DeLeeuw now makes her home just outside of Ogden, Utah, and remains in-demand as a poet, humorist, emcee, and lively entertainer.
