Dawn Anita

Award winning artist, DAWN ANITA, is a real cowgirl who was raised on a ranch in southern Oklahoma, and she and her husband currently live on a ranch near where she lived as a child. She would have ridden her horse to school had it not been too many hoof beats from home. She is equally at home on horseback or on the stage singing or reciting her cowboy poetry. Dawn Anita’s roots are embedded in country music
She started her music career at the early age of 7 when her family held Saturday night “music fests,” and she could hardly wait her turn to get up and sing. Early in her career she sang with the famed Texas Playboys and performed with artists like Red Steagall, Hank Thompson, Mel Tillis, Johnny Russell, Willie Nelson, Gene Watson, Joe Diffie and Tanya Tucker. She has performed throughout the US, Canada and the Caribbean. She has also performed at the Cowboy Hall of Fame, and she feels western music and tales about the cowboy way of life will live on forever.
She has received numerous awards for her singing and song writing. She won an international song writing contest with a song called Cheatin’ List that went to No. 2 overseas. She was "Female Vocalist" and "Entertainer of the Year" at the Oklahoma Opry and was Female Vocalist at KLAW Radio. She was also nominated as Female Vocalist and her album "Down on Wildhorse Creek" was nominated for Album of the Year with Pro Cowboy Country Artist Association. She also had the honor of being Ms Senior Oklahoma of America in 2017, and she is a published author with her book entitled "One More Last Chance", a gripping tale of she and her husband’s struggles in the music business and their ride on horseback from Oklahoma to Nashville. After 24 rain-soaked days, she stepped off her horse onto the stage to sing at Fan Fair.
She released a traditional country album entitled “The Dawn of Old Country” and also a western album entitled “Down on Wildhorse Creek,” in 2017, and both albums are receiving great air play in the US and overseas. "Down on Wildhorse Creek" came in at No. 3 in the Top 30 western songs in the Spring 2018 edition of Western Way.
Dawn Anita’s new album "The Country In Me" is sure to please not only western fans, but western swing fans and traditional country music fans. As you listen to this album, you will be enchanted with Dawn Anita’s pure vocals and her original style. Some songs will bring a tear to your eye, some will make you laugh, and some will set your toes to tappin’, and they all are sure to be pleasing to your ear!
