"Yeeeeeeeihaaaw!…." The southern, rustic charm that takes us back to the days when we took piggyback rides, jumping excitedly as we tried to imitate Walker Texas Ranger. How can you hear cowboy voices without automatically thinking of the Wild West, where life is adventurous and exciting? Where ladies are referred to as "Ma'am' and men are judged based on character.
Cowboy voices are one of the most recognizable voices. The loud, mellow Southern voice we have gotten accustomed to from the Old Western movies have made this voice lovable even in today's modernized society. Maybe it's the wild horses. It could even be the street gunfights, but the cowboys from the west have an appeal that is irresistible.
Stories of the Wild West are not complete without the use of the voice, but it can also be used for commercials, plays, animations, and audiobooks. The cowboy character is very recognizable, identifiable, and the use of a cowboy voice makes them immediately relatable and more memorable to the audience.
A Southern accent is probably the most notable characteristic of a cowboy voice. It’s deep and manly, displaying a carefree and lawless, irresponsible, usually dashing character who is fun and outgoing. Audiences cannot help but fall in love with the smooth-talking cowboy.
There are very few other voices that can showcase an aura of self-belief, confidence, and cockiness like cowboy voices. The portrayal of cowboys in movies has made it easy to relate a character who is arrogant and can get the job done.
