Jasper 'Buck' Livingston made a decision early in his life that influenced and changed the cowboy culture. Through failure and disappointment he learned that although one person cannot change the world, it takes only one to start. Buck strategizes his life purpose one cowboy at a time. Woven within the film is Buck's incredible life journey as a rodeo cowboy, rancher father, and preacher. It's an exhilarating and emotional true-life story of an ordinary man from north Texas who served an extraordinary purpose. The film depicts the grueling travels of the rodeo circuit, from the backbreaking bull riding to the musical oasis of the honky-tonks. It portrays both the picturesque culture of the American rancher while dispensing cowboy pride and simplistic life solutions. Just as 32 nails attach the shoes to a horse; 'Nail 32' clenches the importance of men being courageous, honorable, and truly God fearing! As each nail serves a purpose; each life matters.

Cowboy Church
19 January 2020 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Nail 32 is a biographical film of Jasper 'Buck' Livingston who founded the Cowboy Church, an alternative for rodeo cowboys beyond the honkytonks they habituate between rodeo events.

In spots the sound quality was poor or it might have rated bigger. It's an interesting film about someone determined to make a difference. I'm a big believer in that. I don't think you have to be a fundamentalist Christian to doit though.

Ahead of Buck Livingston certainly Roy Rogers and Dale Evans combined western culture and Christianity.

The influence is there. When attending a few Professional Bull Rider Events there are services for fans conducted by the religious ones of the riders. No doubt influenced by Livingston.

Brad Johnson and Shelton Murphy play Livingston well at different points in his life.

This might make it out of more than church basement showings.
