If you are from Wyoming, you are proud to tell people. It's weird, but some people don't know where Wyoming is or what goes on in the state. However, people start to catch on and learn about it when there are Wyomingites who can get on a national stage and talk about how we live life in Cowboy State.

For Ian Munsick, that's happening right now.

The singer/ songwriter is proud to let everyone worldwide know he's from Wyoming. You can hear it in his music, see it in his style, and feel it when he talks about Wyoming life. The country crooner got to talk about his home state, music, family, and background when he was featured in the New Yorker weekly magazine.

The article was an interview with Ian while performing at the Grand Ole Opry. Being at the Opry is an excellent chance for him to strut his stuff and shine a spotlight on his Wyoming-influenced music in front of country music lovers. When you're featured in the New Yorker, you're now able to reach people who may have never listened to country music, heard of Ian Munsick, and thought Wyoming was a mythical place that is only known for being the home of 'the train station' on that Kevin Costner TV show.

Congratulations, Ian. You're making your home state proud. Keep up the great work, and continue telling the world about the great REAL state of Wyoming.
