Storyteller bestowed Heritage Award

     (PNAN-MT) – World-renowned songwriter, storyteller, recording artist, and television and radio personality, Red Steagall is the recipient of the 2011 Charles M. Russell Heritage Award. “Steagall is a true patriot of the American West,” said Darrell Beauchamp, Executive Director of the Museum. “He has made significant contributions, through his own brand of artistry, to what we like to think of as ‘Charlie’s West.’ His unwavering commitment to keeping the American frontier alive is why we chose Red…We’re honored to have him join us.”
