About the Performance

There's a new star in Texas! Dala Driftwood punches cattle like a heavyweight and trick-rides a horse like no man's business. But don't get to thinking she's all jingle jangle jingle. Cowgirls stormed the ring before cattle queens tossed their tiaras into it, and a few like Dala had the savvy to take their game from rodeo to studio. Dala rides straight out of the spunk of industry greats, from Annie Oakley and Calamity Jane to Fay Kirkwood and Dale Evans. Her 1940s show is where wild west meets big town, giving wartime fans a welcome diversion and an awesome peek at a new player on a man's entertainment stage. So, get on in and warm a bench as Dala ditches her spurs and takes trusty Sidekick Ted to town. And to Gene Autry and Roy Rogers: y'all are on notice.
