  • August 25th, 2007: Barry in "Soul Of The West" in Palo Duro Canyon, Texas.

    Red Steagall, Barry Corbin, Anne Lockhart, Alex Cord, Buck Taylor and Michael Horse bring "SOUL OF THE WEST" To Pioneer Amphitheater in Palo Duro Canyon August 25th, benefit will also feature Don Edwards and Trudy Fair.

    The great cowboy legends come to life again in Palo Duro Canyon's Pioneer Amphitheatre with the August 25th production of "Soul of the West." The return of the one-night engagement is the inspiring story that played to capacity crowd last year and sold out at Forth Worth's Bass Performance Hall in the fall of 2004 and 2005. (Click to see pictures of the 2004 Fort Worth show here).

    This year's performance again will be enhanced by the natural backdrop of the magnificent Palo Duro Canyon, the actual setting of this legendary story. "Soul of the West" tells the tale of the great Texas pioneer cattleman Charles Goodnight and the settlement and development of the West. Written by Red Steagall, Andy Wilkinson, and Anne Lockhart, this historical musical drama stars Steagall, Lockhart, Northern Exposure's Barry Corbin, noted movie and television actor Michael Horse, stage and screen veteran Alex Cord (star of the 80's television series Airwolf), cowboy balladeer Don Edwards, Gunsmoke's Buck Taylor and others.

    The play is under the direction of Lubbock native and noted playwright-singer- songwriter Andy Wilkinson. The performance will include a chance to meet the cast at a reception, to be held immediately following the production, in the newly renovated dining pavilion. Only ticket holders at the $50 level will have access to this reception. All proceeds from this performance of "Soul of the West" will benefit the Scholarship Fund of the Cowboy Heritage Association, a scholarship fund specifically designated for children of working ranch families.

    The Cowboy Heritage Association is a nonprofit corporation, founded in 2000 by area businessmen and women who have a passion for the Western lifestyle. The sole purpose of the organization is to fund educational scholarships to deserving young people of North and West Texas who have shown an interest in the Western way of life.

A portion of the $50 level ticket is tax deductible. General admission is offered at the $25 level.

  • September 15, 2007. Barry Corbin in Charles Goodnight's Last Night at Fort Chadbourne.

    For actor Barry Corbin, born and reared in Lamesa, Sept. 15 will be a West Texas homecoming of sorts when he takes the stage at historic Fort Chadbourne in the one-man monologue "Charlie Goodnight's Last Night." (Click here to see pictures of the show)

    The 66-year-old Fort Worth actor's grandparents lived in San Angelo when he was a boy. Corbin, best-known for his role on TV's Northern Exposure returns to West Texas when he headlines an ambitious fundraising effort at Fort Chadbourne near Bronte to restore and rehabilitate the frontier outpost on the ranch now owned by Garland and Lana Richards. Tickets are on sale.

    He'll portray Charlie Goodnight, who in 1867 stopped at Fort Chadbourne and requested a military escort as he drove a herd of cattle through hostile Indian territory along the Goodnight-Loving Trail up the Pecos River to Colorado. "I read J. Evetts Haley's biography of Goodnight," Corbin said. "I just like the idea of doing Charlie Goodnight. Its a good show. I haven't done it in a couple of years, so I have to relearn the lines." The actor, a Texas Tech University alumnus, is twice married and divorced, and a father and grandfather. Corbin's father, attorney Kilmer Corbin, preceded the late Preston Smith of Lubbock in the Texas Senate.

    A Goodnight relative, Andy Wilkinson of Lubbock, wrote the play. It depicts the legendary cattleman's epic life, which ended in December 1929 at age 93 in Tucson, Ariz. In the play, he talks to the audience, Wilkinson said via telephone from his office. He mentions things in his life, intertwined with his current circumstances. An undercurrent of the piece is, we don't honor old people. As he dies, he becomes young. So the play is metaphorical, as opposed to what-I-did-last-summer.

    Corbin, who lives on 15 acres with horses, cattle and a buffalo in his native Texas, said he does not care to live where most TV and film actors live: New York or Hollywood. "I moved here back in 1995," he said, "It's close to the airport. I can get anywhere I need to be. I figured I'd be happier here." Fans of the quirky television series Northern Exposure will remember Corbin for his role as former astronaut Maurice Minnifield. More recently, he stars as Coach Whitey Durham on The CW's One Tree Hill. Corbin has guest-starred on shows such as The Drew Carey Show, Reba and Walker, Texas Ranger, and he has numerous film and stage credits. Even though Corbin's son and two grandchildren are embarking on careers as professional entertainers, the veteran actor's usual advice to aspiring performers is, Don't. A lot of people can't stand the constant rejection that you go through when you're starting out, he said. What you have to do is not let it bother you. His own agenda? Keep working, Corbin replied.


     

  • August 6, 2007: New projects.

    Barry Corbin kept busy in between seasons of "One Tree Hill" by heading to the big screen. He has completed four films alone set for release in the next year. His most high profile movie comes from Oscar-winner Paul Haggis' film, "In The Valley of Elah". The movie boasts an all star cast including Tommy Lee Jones, Charlize Theron, James Franco, Jason Patric, and Susan Sarandon. Written and directed by Paul Haggis ("Crash", "Million Dollar Baby"), "In The Valley of Elah" is a story about a young soldier who mysteriously goes AWOL for four days after returning from the front lines of Iraq. His father (Jones) and mother (Sarandon) hire a police detective (Theron) to help track him down. His father finds out that his son was murdered and goes on a mission trying to piece together what led to his untimely death. The movie was inspired by a 2004 Playboy magazine article written by Mark Boal. "In The Valley of Elah" is set for a September 14 release date.

    Barry can also be seen later this year in the movie "Lake City", a drama about a family tragedy that reunites a mother and son. The film stars Sissy Spacek, Rebecca Romijn ("Ugly Betty"), Dave Matthews, and Drea de Matteo ("The Sopranos").

    Barry also has two films due out in 2008: "The Hill" and "The House of Terror".
