It’s all about the nostalgia at Dan Miller’s Cowboy Music Revue, according to Business Manager Wendy Corr.
“That famous line, ‘Back in the saddle again,’ from Gene Autry’s song, evokes memories of carefree childhood days and time spent around a television as a family, pulled into a world of make-believe where the good guys wore white hats and always won,” Corr says. “Visitors have a chance to relive those fond memories at Dan Miller’s Cowboy Music Revue. Within the first few minutes, they’re tapping their feet and singing along to songs they haven’t heard in decades.”
The Wyoming-based attraction opened its doors 15 years ago in downtown Cody—a town with traditional Western characteristics that Dan Miller says made it the perfect place to establish his show. It’s also located at the east entrance of Yellowstone National Park.
Miller comes from years spent in television as an award-winning game show host and rodeo announcer. His daughter, Hannah, who got her start on stage with her dad at age 6 reading a cowboy poem, now plays the fiddle and mandolin and provides vocals. And Corr isn’t just the business manager; she also is the group’s vocalist and bass player. The band is known for cowboy, country, gospel, and folk tunes with an old-time feel.
The show partners with the historical Irma Hotel, built in 1902 by Buffalo Bill and situated next door. Guests can purchase a show package including a prime rib buffet at the hotel for under $40.
“For many, this combination offers classic Cody hospitality and quality—an aspect that Miller believes is important,” Corr says. “Whether visitors choose the dinner and show or just come for the music, Dan Miller’s Cowboy Music Revue and the Irma Hotel provide a taste of classic cowboy culture in a town known for its rich Western heritage.”
