Devon Dawson, aka 'Miss Devon':
Hailing from Fort Worth, Texas, Miss Devon is a top entertainer in western music, and has been recognized by the Academy of Western Artists as the Female Performer of the Year 2009. She's noted for her vintage sock-rhythm guitar style, and warm 'swingtime cowgirl' vocals, which bring to mind legendary B-western ladies of the silver screen, Dale Evans, Rosalie Allen, Patsy Montana, etc. Like them, her lively persona intrigues and engages both kids and adults in her audience. She holds a Grammy certificate for her participation as the singin', yodelin' voice of Jessie, on the Walt Disney CD, Woody's Roundup featuring Riders in the Sky, which was the follow-up to the movie, inspired by the characters of Toy Story 2. She has performed in and out of that character coast-to-coast, and all across the American West, including at the renowned Grand Old Opry in Nashville, Tennessee, and at Pixar Studios in Emeryville, California. Around her home stompin' grounds, Devon has made personal appearances with Radio Disney, Imagination Celebration, libraries, schools, public festivals and private events. She has appeared onstage at the Bass Hall with Riders In the Sky and Michael Martin Murphey, and has performed several dances with the legendary western swing group, The Texas Playboys. She is also frequently seen on Encore's The Westerns Channel, and RFD-TV.
