Following the footsteps of his Dad and Mom, Dusty began his recording career which opened new opportunities to appear in many major rodeos, state fairs, conventions, concert halls and dinner houses throughout the United States and Canada. His autobiography "Growing up with Roy and Dale" enlightens us to what it is like being the son of such famous parents.
