One of my heroes has died. On Dec. 29, 2022, Canadian folk singer Ian Tyson, as Canadian cowboys say, crossed the great divide.

Tyson grew up in Duncan, British Columbia. He learned to ride horses on the family farm, and became a rodeo rider in his late teens and early 20s. He learned to play the guitar while in the hospital waiting for a leg injury to heal.
