Join Dave Alexander for the World of Western Swing Saturday mornings at 8 am.
Once you have seen Dave Alexander in concert it is easy to understand why he has been named Entertainer Of The Year by the Academy of Western Artists.
Throughout his successful and award winning career this dynamic entertainer has gained the respect of his peers while mesmerizing his audiences with each performance. His talents as a performer are unsurpassed as recently exemplified upon his induction in to the Texas Western Swing Hall of Fame, Male Vocalist of The Year by the Academy of Western Artists and newly appointed Cadillac sponsorship.
Dave has performed and recorded with the biggest names in country music such as George Strait, Toby Keith and LeAnn Rimes while carving out his own stellar career in the music industry. The three time GRAMMY nominee remains as one of the nation’s top selling western artists.
Alexander has been recognized as having created the finest Western Big Band ever assembled to deliver his overwhelming performances. Great western musicians, combined with his incomparable horn section, make up the finest musical ensemble on the road today. On many occasions Alexander will be joined by the great Legends of Western Swing, such as seven-time CMA Instrumentalist Of The Year, Johnny Gimble, along with Texas Playboys Billy Briggs, and Leon Rausch.
As a former member of the Texas Playboys himself, Alexander combines the heritage and success of yesterday’s great western music with the fever and excitement of his own compositions and today’s hottest musicians. The results remain unprecedented. As a writer Dave’s compositions can be recognized from the rodeo arena of the NFR in Las Vegas to the football stadiums of the Dallas Cowboys or The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo.
Dave Alexander is no stranger to the road or rodeo. Last year in addition to his touring schedule, Dave and his golden palomino Missy made more than one hundred personal appearances at some of the largest professional rodeos in the country.
“It’s simply the best way I know to get my music to my people”, says Alexander. “Western music is an important part of the cowboy world, and that world will always include riding and rodeo.” he adds.
Dave is also very active in radio, television and film. His television ads for Chevrolet, GMC and Cadillac can be seen throughout Texas as he continues to honor a corporate sponsorship package for over five years.
He can be heard across the country on a nationally syndicated Radio Program as guest host of “The World of Western Swing”. A new radio show currently sweeping the nation as it brings to life the fun and exciting sounds of Western Music.
His latest feature film, “The Hi Low Country” includes music written, arranged and performed by Dave with such artists as Willie Nelson and Marty Stuart. This film later received a Western Heritage Award from the National Cowboy Hall of Fame.
