Dan Miller has spent his career promoting the cowboy way of life. As a rodeo announcer and television commentator, Miller promoted cowboys and western culture to a national audience for almost 30 years.
Miller, who is originally from Garrett, Indiana, began a project in 2005 that has touched thousands of people from around the world. Dan, his daughter Hannah and Wendy Corr this year are celebrating 18 years of playing to audiences from around the globe, with their unique brand of music, humor, history and poetry.
And they are bringing their Cowboy Music Revue – first-class western music and wholesome family entertainment – to Warsaw, Indiana at the Wagon Wheel Playhouse on Saturday, March 5.
“My Indiana roots run deep,” Miller said. “Both of my sisters still make their homes ‘Back Home In Indiana’. So it’s always a thrill for me to come home and share my western music with my fellow Hoosiers.”
For the past 18 years, Miller’s group has performed in Cody six nights each week, from June through September, to almost 200,000 visitors from 70 different foreign countries. They have performed over 2,000 shows together – from east coast to west coast, from Montana to Mexico – and have delighted audiences with their tight harmonies and musical excellence.
For almost fifteen years, Dan and his group have been featured artists in Nashville on the popular television show, “Larry’s Country Diner”. USA Today, Cowboys and Indians magazine and television networks RFD-TV, ESPN, the Travel Channel and the Outdoor Channel have all featured the Cowboy Music Revue.
“Absolutely delightful,” praised one writer for Cowboys and Indians Magazine. “These are proud Wyomingites, showing guests what’s great about their state. I left smiling and surprised.”
Dan’s circle of Nashville friends are fans, as well. Two-time CMA Entertainer of the Year Barbara Mandrell said of her visit, “The highlight of our wonderful vacation in Cody, Wyoming was the evening we spent at Dan Miller’s Cowboy Music Revue. It is truly a fantastic, thoroughly entertaining variety show!”
A familiar face and voice to those who follow professional rodeo, western music and the great outdoors, Miller has produced and hosted national telecasts on TNN, ESPN, GAC, RFD-TV and The Outdoor Channel. In 2015 he was awarded the Excellence in Broadcast Journalism Award by the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA).
In recent years, the group has had the opportunity to take their show on the road, and have delighted audiences from coast to coast.
“We had a deluge of rave reviews, both at the concert and the next morning at our local church, from folks who were still enthralled by the show twelve hours later,” noted the president of Stage Alive in Culpeper, Virginia. “One of the most entertaining acts we have presented in several years.”
Appearing with Miller are Wendy Corr, who plays bass and sings lead and harmony vocals, and Dan’s daughter Hannah, who sings and plays fiddle and mandolin in the show.
The show begins at 7:00 p.m. at the Wagon Wheel Center For the Arts in Warsaw on Saturday, March 5. Tickets are $25 per person, and can be purchased online HERE.
