Rhinestone Cowboy: The Story of Nudie The Rodeo Ta

By Petrine Day Mitchum & Holly George-Warren



"Rhinestone Cowboy" is the rags-to-rhinestone-riches story of Nudie Cohn, the son of a Jewish bootmaker, who fled religious persecution in his native Russia and escaped to New York in 1913, at age eleven, to pursue his dream of designing clothes for western film and music stars. Surviving the Depression and multiple setbacks, Nudie persevered to create the spectacularly embroidered and sparkly garments made famous by scores of entertainers from Roy Rogers to Elvis Presley, grand ole’ opry stars Dolly Parton and Porter Wagoner, rock’n’rollers like the Rolling Stones, the Flying Burrito Brothers, Janis Joplin and Sir Elton John – and worn most recently at the 2019 Oscars ceremony by nominated songwriters Gillian Welch & David Rawlings.
