COWGIRL 30 Under 30 2020: Adrian Brannan

Author, Entrepreneur, Singer-Songwriter, Cowgirl, Age 27


Adrian Brannan is a Billboard chart-topping singer-songwriter who is equally at home in the branding pen, onstage, or on a bucking horse. Brannan encourages women around the world through her weekly #DearCowgirl letters and through her recently released book, Dear Cowgirl: Letters to Women. Hailing from an off-grid cabin in the mountains, Brannan splits her time between touring, writing, performing, chopping wood, and taking care of her own small bunch of cows.

Future for women in the Western industry

“It’s incredible to see how an industry that has always been shaped by strong women in many different roles continues to grow and shift to keep up with an ever-changing world. Whether she is caking cows, fixing fence, raising little cowhands, or designing fashion that will be worn down the runway, there is nothing she cannot do. She is you and she is me and she is beautifully unconfined by the box the rest of the world seeks to put her in.”




Adrian was honored to sing the National Anthem at the 2021 Western Heritage Awards held in Oklahoma City, OK. She was also presented with her own award, taking home the prestigious Wrangler Award for her latest album Desert Dwelling Mama, as well as performing a song from the album at the event.
