ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Country Music News International Review: "Mikki has that special 'gift' I like to refer to in music, as something inside a person, a performer, a writer, a recording artist, a vocalist. That's what Mikki Daniel is. She more than accurately refers to her music as 'cowgirl swing.' I am so so so glad she doesn't call her music 'country.' Why? Because it is far far far better than what we hear as 'country' today, and it still retains the spirit, originality, and what I like to refer to as the 'soul' of what country music once was. Mikki has that same 'soul' that Bob Wills had. Same 'soul' as Spade Cooley. Same 'soul' as Michael Nesmith. Same 'soul' as Circe Link. Same 'soul' as Willie, and Johnny, and Waylon, and so many more of the really really great recording artists. No wonder she scares the big boys. Put all that together, and add one very beautiful young woman, and you have what a deserving young artist has already attained. I really like her 'go-back' to Streets of Laredo on "Leave the Cards Alone." The musical backing is superb all the way through, with some stunning guitar tracks provided by Tommy Nash, Chuck Pangburn, Dale Morris Jr., and Mikki herself. Two great fiddlers, Brook Wallace and Haily Sandoz. Couple of the songs even have the banjo of Scott Whitfield, and two drummers make the songs distinctly different in the rhythm part, Patrick Bubert and Josh Rodgers. The interesting players are Dave Alexander on trumpet by Dave Alexander, and clarinet & saxophone by Jon Stutler. Mark Gheen plays piano, and Nathan Phelps on bass makes it all gel together really nice. With nine of the 14 songs on this CD, some a little jazzy at times, but Mikki doesn't hesitate to git right back to cowgirl, and she does it so smoothly and so elegantly, its a really nice CD to hear over and over. I'll be passing this one along to the Rural Roots Music Commission who select CD of the Year awards at the annual convention in LeMars, Iowa. Since I sit on that board, I would recommend to Mikki that her CD is already on the table for "Western Swing" of the year, we'll see. This one is five stars, plus a little. Congratulations Mikki on a job well done." Bob Everhart

This 17-year-old from the Fort Worth area has lived all her life on a small ranch and is a true cowgirl from the tips of her cowboy boots to the top of her worn out, white felt cowboy hat. Her young resume includes singing, playing multiple instruments, songwriting, horse training and writing historical fiction novels. She discovered her true calling of playing, writing and singing Western music when she, at 5, fell in love with Roy Rogers and Gene Autry movies – she even owns (and trained) her golden palomino named Trigger. To hone her passion, Janet McBride, the “Yodeling Queen,” guided Mikki into the fascinating world of American cowboy-style yodeling. After that, Mikki began delighting audiences across Texas and then the United States with her unique style. Mikki has a heart dedicated to sharing this precious music that is fading away and you can't help but love the personality, charm and engaging smile of this young entertainer. Among her numerous accolades, she has been awarded the WMA Crescendo Award, the WMA Marilyn Tuttle "Best of the Best" Harmony Award, the WMA Janet Mc Bride "Best of the Best" Yodeling Award, the AWA Yodeler of the Year Award and the prestigious New Horizons Wrangler Award for her debut CD, "Gotta Be A Cowgirl" (which contains 9 songs that Mikki wrote). Mikki is the youngest person to ever win a Wrangler Award.

“Mikki Daniel is the BEST of the new crop of young Western entertainers! Her infectious smile and top-notch delivery will have you shouting...”ENCORE!” ~ Barry Ward

Mikki writes and sings with such incredible depth and range! She is a credit to any genre but, lucky for us, she is, and obviously will be, an integral part of the Western Music genre!”
~ Rob Wolfskill, Tumbleweed Rob and the Southwest Junction

“I think we’re looking at the next Cindy Walker here! The maturity in Mikki’s songwriting is incredible for someone her age and is almost unexplainable. Her ability to interpret her own tunes, as well as those of others, marks her as a performer with an outstanding future. Mikki represents great hope for the future of western music.” ~ Marvin O’Dell, Around the Campfire, Defenders of Freedom Radio

"Mikki sings so sweetly and from the heart. She plays and understands the guitar better than I ever will. But it is her songwriting that got my attention. Mikki weaves good stories with such depth and meaning. How she can see through the eyes of the diverse people she writes of at the age of seventeen is beyond me. Mikki, you can go in any direction you wish and it will be great." ~ Rex Rideout, Time Travel Music
