Gather your cowboy hats and boots — the Cowboy Review is coming to Federal Way.

TJ Casey and Jim Reader will perform their show at 8 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 27, at the Knutzen Family Theatre.

The men, who are billed are real cowboys, are coming from Montana and will perform songs about their experiences with prairie life and cattle drives.

“Their stories and styles will transport you to the prairies,” said Holly Rose, theater coordinator.

Both men have had top songs on the country swing charts, Rose said.

Casey’s most recent hit song was number five on the top 10 western swing chart and another song from his most recent album, “Cowboy, Don’t Change Your Ways,” reached number one.

He has performed with Merle Haggard, Ian Tyson and Dierks Bentley.

Reader has opened for Kenny Rogers and B.J. Thomas.

“They are real cowboys, not just some city guys standing on the stage,” Rose said.

“They’ve experienced doing the things they sing about. They’re very vibrant and they have a good following.”
