Homegrown talent, Valdez, is visiting from Nashville! Phil Valdez grew up in La Veta, CO. within a musically talented family. He began playing guitar at age 10, and dedicated his adolescent years to lessons and perfecting his guitar talent by learning from one of the greatest jazz guitar players, Bobby Montoya. Playing guitar in the family band as a teen with his father, mother, brother, and two uncles introduced him to country music at an early age.

Phil began singing as a late teen idolizing Merle Haggard and George Jones. His voice has a rich baritone, reminiscent of his country music heroes. As a professional guitar player, Phil has been featured in Guitar Player magazine. His guitar style can be described as a hybrid of a country pickin jazz player.

Based in Nashville, Tennessee, Phil has performed at the Grand Ole Opry and has played guitar for some of the best names in country music including Vern Gosdin, Stonewall Jackson, Tracy Byrd, Daryle Singletary,  Mark Wills, Tracy Lawrence, Mark Chestnut, and many others. Currently, he tours the world promoting his own music as a solo acoustic act. He continues to impress his fans and country music critics with his triple threat of singing, songwriting and guitar playing. Phil is working on a new album to be released in the near future.


Spanish Peaks Wilderness

A.k.a Wahatoya Region

In Southern Colorado, there's an immense area where few go. Some enjoy the Nature, away from the crowded trails and resorts. Some come for the adventure. Some even stay.

What to do?

Follow trails through tall evergreens and quaking aspens. Stand on rock outcroppings and survey the valleys and vistas as they tumble upon each other to the horizon. Sit under a tree and listen...to the songs of the birds, the wind, the trees...the song of the mountains. Relax you're in the Cuchara Valley.
