Loy Allen Bowlin: The Original Rhinestone Cowboy

“Like a rhinestone cowboy… riding out on a horse in a star-spangled rodeo. Rhinestone cowboy, gettin’ cards and letters from people I don’t even know and offers comin’ over the phone.”

Loy Allen Bowlin was an outsider artist who decorated his home and himself, including his dentures, in rhinestones. After his death in 1995, his home was nearly demolished, but was saved at the last minute and put in an art center in Wisconsin. Here’s a great bio of The Original Rhinestone Cowboy >
