Keepin' Your Head Above The Water
Devon Dawson

Presented by Mitzi Lucas Riley and Garlene Tindall Parris
In Honor on the 100th Anniversary of Cowtown Coliseum

From the CD Notes:
The Mighty Fort Worth Stockyards!
A wild 'n wooly place called 'Cowtown,' with it's cowboys, gangsters, pens, packing houses, and rodeos, had its peak years between 1903 and 1947. After a devastating flood in May 1949, a decline set in that would not reverse until the mid-1970s, with it's designation as a national historic district.

Today there is plenty of pride in this Texas city "Where the West Begins," and once again, the Stockyards district is thriving and bustling, albeit a bit more civilized. As the historic Cowtown Coliseum, site of the world's first indoor rodeo, reaches it's centennial year in 2008, it seems appropriate to reflect on some of the lives and careers that were formed from the dust of this storied arena...

A Word About Cowtown Opry:
Founded in 1992 by western swing pianist, Jean Marlowe, Cowtown Opry's goal is to promote and perform Texas heritage music, specifically that stemming from the cattle ranching culture. A 501c3 non-profit organization, CTO has mentored adults and children in western music performance and repertoire by presenting regular Sunday afternoon shows in the Fort Worth Stockyards National Historic District. As talen coordinator since 1996, I find that western music performers are some of the finest people I have ever met, and it is a joy to share with them the music and history of the West!
