Bob Kinford, founder of Crossroads, conceived the concept of a cowboy correct gathering after receiving yet another polite rejection letter from a gathering, inviting him to come back and participate in their Open Mic.
Bob and his wife Catie realized that he was not the only entertainer who couldn't afford to attend gatherings to perform in the open Mic sessions without being allowed the opportunity to sell his books or cd's.
With that in mind, they decided to have a gathering where everyone was welcome to have a full 20 minute set, be able to sell their books and cd's while getting the chance to hired to perform at other places.
