When you think of the American West, what comes to mind? Cowboys? Ranchers? The open range? If you’re like most people, you associate the American West with a certain way of life. It’s a lifestyle that’s unique and authentic. At Cavender’s, we understand this lifestyle better than anyone. That’s why we’ve created our 2022 brand film, “This Is How We Live.” In it, we take you on a journey with real people of the American West, capturing its spirit and culture in all its glory. We’re proud to highlight the cowboys and cowgirls that make this lifestyle about more than just what we wear-this is how we live. It is our pleasure to introduce the cast to you. Each person may come from a different walk of life, but they all represent what the West means to us. Watch for yourself and see!
