Dan Miller’s Cowboy Music Revue has spent thirteen seasons as the best musical entertainment in Buffalo Bill’s Cody Country! Drawing from his Nashville days, Dan and his “Empty Saddles Band” play musical styles ranging from cowboy and Americana to bluegrass and gospel at their summer show in Cody. They are the featured performers at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West from mid-May through the beginning of October. More than 120,000 visitors—from 65 countries around the world—have enjoyed their summer show as part of their Wyoming vacation.
Led by Nashville television personality Dan Miller, the group also features on the fiddle and mandolin Dan's daughter Hannah, a student at Northwest College in Powell; and bass player Wendy Corr, who spends her daytime hours covering the Bighorn Basin as the news director at the Big Horn Radio Network.
Long before Dan was hosting television shows like PBR Bull Riding, American Magazine and Due West. he was playing the showrooms of Nevada with The Dan Miller Band. While working on a dairy farm in Indiana he dreamed of movies, music and the entertainment industry. After attending college on a football scholarship he headed to Los Angeles to pursue his dreams. In L.A. Dan studied acting, worked in radio and television, and performed in clubs. Those jobs led to the stages of Reno, Tahoe, and Las Vegas and a touring schedule that took him from Alaska to Florida.
When he moved to Nashville to pursue a recording career, he found more opportunities existed for him there in television commercials and voice overwork. Over the next 15 years he hosted a variety of television shows including the Cable ACE award winning Top Card and conventions for national corporations.

High Country Cowboys in Concert
Basin City Arts Center
April 1, 2017 @7:00
Western Harmony and Yodeling Fun!
The singing cowboy trio from Red Lodge Montana, The High Country Cowboys, takes listeners back to a time when country/western music was real. They evoke silver screen cowboys like Roy Rogers, Western harmony groups like Sons of the Pioneers, and country music icons like Marty Robbins. Hear their western harmony and yodeling fun at the Basin City Arts Center
Born and raised in Montana where the cowboy spirit is still alive, the three brothers, John, Joe, and Marty have found a desire to revive all the aspects of Traditional Western Music, that were born to it, in its heyday. The High Country Cowboys, members of the Western Music Association, have released several albums. In 2015, their lead singer Marty, was awarded as the WMA’s Yodeler of the Year. In 2016, they were nominated for the WMA Crescendo Award, and their album “Songs of the High Country Cowboys” is in the Final 5 nominees for the 2016 WMA Western Album of the Year.
With their two guitars, (made by bass player Joe), and three part western harmony, their traditional sound continues to gain a wider audience. Since their start at the local Pollard Hotel in 2014, they have performed at numerous fundraisers, fairs, outdoor concerts and Theaters. You may also see them perform the National Anthem from horseback at different Rodeo events. In April of 2016, they debuted at the Alberta Bair Theater in Billings MT, before a crowd of 500. Later that year they played for a crowd of 2000 at St. Johns Summer Concert Series, also in Billings. While many folks believe that this is something that they’ve been striving for all their lives, any one of the boys will tell you that their music career has been something that they never dreamed of doing! “It is more like something that came about accidentally!”
The High Country Cowboys show starts aton . Tickets are Adults $10 and Ages 12 & under $5. The Basin City Arts Center is a nonprofit organization developing and supporting the arts in the Big Horn Basin.
