""While searching the Internet for images to complement a song I'd written for a friend - "Nancee (Queen of the Rodeo Circuit) - I came across a website devoted to Cowgirls in the old West and particularly to Kitty Canutt - the 'Diamond Girl'. Her story is the inspiration for the Rough Diamonds CD;  her spirit a revelation. Thus, all songs in this project come under the name Diamond Kitty.  

No 'Bling!' about it.

"The portrait of 'Kitty Canutt - Champion of All' was taken after she won first place in the Cowgirl's Bucking  Contest at the 1916 Pendleton Round-Up in Oregon.  Kitty competed for three days in the bucking horse and relay events to the roar of 30,000 rodeo fans.  She earned prize money and two trophy saddles.  Kitty was knows as the 'Diamond Girl' because she had a diamond set in her front tooth, which, it is said, she'd remove occasionally to pawn when she needed entry money." A girl after my own heart.
