I thought it was a big deal to walk around a Convention Center in Chicago back in 2004 as Naked Cowboy's sidekick wearing a fairly skimpy cowgirl outfit. It was a little easier doing it again on Bourbon Street during Mardi Gras, and again in Daytona Beach, Florida during Bike Week 2004. Stepping out into Times square as the Naked Cowgirl to do a press release for "Every Moment Counts" DVD (Ron Israel Productions) was a little strange, too. It got easier and more fun each time, although I wasn't playing a guitar yet. I even got on the Times Square Jumbo tron with my cowgirl hat on Memorial Day Weekend 2005...totally cool!
So I finally decided to give in to the prompting and requests of many friends and acquaintances who constantly asked when I was going to be "The Naked Cowgirl" in Times Square. With all the controversy this summer surrounding the Trademark infringement lawsuit between Naked Cowboy and Sandy Kane, plus the return of the other Cowgirl, Louisa, I decided I am finally going sign the licensing agreement and become the "Officially Licensed Naked Cowgirl" of Times Square.
The big question from day one has been, "but will you be out there in the winter like the Naked Cowboy"? My answer consistently has been "I don't know how long I'll last, but I WILL TRY"!
I believe I've earned my title "Naked Cowgirl" last night when I went into Times Square at 6:11pm until 6:22pm in the middle of a blizzard! It was amazing!!!
