About Us

Your hosts and owners of the Bar-M Chuckwagon are Alan Brown and Valerie Hunt Brown. Valerie and Alan both sing, yodel and play several musical instruments. You’ll discover over the course of the evening that their passion for the business and their terrific musical talents are a magic combination that helps make the Bar-M so much fun.

Valerie and Alan met and married in Nashville, Tennessee. Valerie was a recording artist on MCA Records with the music/comedy trio “Ethel & the Shameless Hussies.” Originally from Illinois, Alan is a singer/song writer and once toured with the internationally famous group “Up With People.” In 1992, Alan and Valerie moved from Nashville to Moab and bought the Bar-M Chuckwagon. They chose Valerie’s home state of Utah to raise their two sons, Wyatt and Garrett, and continue their life’s work as entertainers.
