"Mikki Daniel has the ability to interpret her own tunes as well as those of others, her incredible songwriting is really authentic.  She represents a great hope of the future of western music.  At 17, I'd say that's a pretty exciting statement!"
~Michael Martin Murphy

"Mikki Daniel is the whole package, she is really fabulous!"
~Jack Hanna, Sons of the San Joaquin

"Who do I predict will take Western Music to a new level, using elements of swing, jazz, classics and pop?  Mikki Daniel, that's who.  This young lady is far more than talented:  you see, talent is easy.  Some are born with it. But it takes so much more than that to be a solid force in the world of entertainment, and Mikki has been honing, crafting and solidifying her considerable skills as a singer, player, songwriter, and performer, finding a unique and recognizable style and voice that is all her own.  Mikki has become a solid presence among the handful of legitimately wonderful performers that populate the top tier of Western Music.  Mikki Daniel has got the whole package and she is making her mark!  See her for yourself, you'll agree!"
~ Juni Fisher, 2011 WMA Entertainer of the Year, 2006 2009 2011 Female Performer of the Year, 2008 Wrangler Award Winner

"Mikki Daniel can sing the socks off a Mockingbird!  On the day God was passing out talent, Mikki got it allSome people are given the gift, and they never really know how great they are and Mikki is one of those.  I guess you can tell I am a fan, I believe Mikki will be as big as her dreams will take her!"
~ David Bradley, Flying W Wranglers

"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, 2013 WMA Male Performer of the Year

"I think we are 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 a s 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 Daniel's debut album is one of the finest pieces of work I have ever had the pleasure to listen to!  And when I say listen, I mean Mikki's music, lyrics and vocals draw you right into her world with as much ease as a nice easy ride into the sunset on horseback.  Every once in a while the perfect mix of personalities come together to make something magical and we are all so lucky that Mikki was able to collaborate with Marvin O'Dell, Journey West and the whole Rhythm Rustler crew!  Clean production, sparkling vocals and personality plus coming through every phrase!  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, multiple award winning Tumbleweed Rob

"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

    Mikki was one of our entertainers at the South Texas Cowboy gathering and she put on a great show! Her personality, stage presence, and freshness was great and her singing made all of us smile. at the end of the weekend she had won all of us over; we all felt like we were her life long friends. We are looking forward to see her at Murph's West Fest on the July 4th weekend and we hope to have her back at next year's Gathering in Seguin. Only happy trails to Mikki!!

    I saw your bio on Unbridled Song and was so impressed with your music, your life story, and your true cowgirl spirit, it just inspired the words for my poem. I'm sure I'm probably older than your Mom, but I have a young spirit, and have often said that I'm just a misplaced cowgirl (we live in SC). My husband, Bobby and I, try and tune in to your fb concert every week, and we so much appreciate your life, and your choice to be true to your roots! We were fortunate enough to be able to visit San Antonio last summer, and we rented a car and drove north awhile to see some of your beautiful state! Who knows, we may end up out there one day. And you can bet your bottom dollar that we'll be looking at where you'll be!! :-) We wish you much continued success! Dream a Little Dream!

    Just wanted you to know that you were my inspiration for writing this poem... Love what you do! I AM COWGIRL! By: Randi Rawls I am Cowgirl! Hear me roar! Turnin' barrels for a score; Trailin' mountains, or sandy shore... I am Cowgirl. I am Cowgirl – Up at dawn; Faded jeans; big ole yawn... Cup of coffee – make it strong! I am Cowgirl. I am Cowgirl – Never tire... Muckin' stalls, manure and mire; Cut my arm on danged barbwire! I am Cowgirl. I am Cowgirl – I am tough! Inside made of softer stuff; Horse and saddle... That's enough! I am Cowgirl. I am Cowgirl – Kin to dirt; Dusty boots; Wrangler shirt; Sweat-stained chaps; muscles hurt! I am Cowgirl. I am Cowgirl – Live to ride! Blue skies, prairie... Open wide. Sweet mutt dog by my side; I am Cowgirl. I am Cowgirl – Ready, let's go! Saturday night local rodeo... Flirtin' cowboys – I'd like to know; I am Cowgirl. I am Cowgirl – Love to dance! Blue-eyed cowboy caught my glance; Two-step swing... A little romance. I am Cowgirl. I am Cowgirl – Must understand... First rule learned – "Ride for the Brand"! Carved my way with a calloused hand. I am Cowgirl. I am Cowgirl – Last word said; Soak in tub, fall in bed; Spotted pony visions dance in my head. I am Cowgirl. I am Cowgirl! Hear me roar! Last cow fed... Last done chore... Last bale stacked... Shut the barn door! I am Cowgirl!

    I AM COWGIRL!
    By: Randi Rawls

    I am Cowgirl! Hear me roar!
    Turnin' barrels for a score;
    Trailin' mountains, or sandy shore...
    I am Cowgirl.

    I am Cowgirl – Up at dawn;
    Faded jeans; big ole yawn...
    Cup of coffee – make it strong!
    I am Cowgirl.

    I am Cowgirl – Never tire...
    Muckin' stalls, manure and mire;
    Cut my arm on danged barbwire!
    I am Cowgirl.

    I am Cowgirl – I am tough!
    Inside made of softer stuff;
    Horse and saddle... That's enough!
    I am Cowgirl.

    I am Cowgirl – Kin to dirt;
    Dusty boots; Wrangler shirt;
    Sweat-stained chaps; muscles hurt!
    I am Cowgirl.

    I am Cowgirl – Live to ride!
    Blue skies, prairie... Open wide.
    Sweet mutt dog by my side;
    I am Cowgirl.

    I am Cowgirl – Ready, let's go!
    Saturday night local rodeo...
    Flirtin' cowboys – I'd like to know;
    I am Cowgirl.

    I am Cowgirl – Love to dance!
    Blue-eyed cowboy caught my glance;
    Two-step swing... A little romance.
    I am Cowgirl.

    I am Cowgirl – Must understand...
    First rule learned – "Ride for the Brand"!
    Carved my way with a calloused hand.
    I am Cowgirl.

    I am Cowgirl – Last word said;
    Soak in tub, fall in bed;
    Spotted pony visions dance in my head.
    I am Cowgirl.

    I am Cowgirl! Hear me roar!
    Last cow fed... Last done chore...
    Last bale stacked... Shut the barn door!
    I am Cowgirl!

    Hey Mikki! I recently watched the unbridled song episode that featured you. You are great!! I am a life long horse girl too :) Could you please tell me where you got the early style cowboy hat you're wearing in the beginning of that program? It was not shaped very much and had a couple feathers, and I absolutely loved it! Keep up all your great work. Looking forward to hearing from you.

    Dear Mikki: I am loving my new Cowgirl Swing CD as I drive to teach and help people with their horses or while riding. I am placing an order for more to hand out to friends and of your first CD. I am trying to find a way to contact Tootie Bland of "Road to the Horse" as I think it would be a great year (with all women) trainers for you to perform there! Oh yes, also enjoyed the special on Ride TV. Have a great day. Sincerely Shelby Hume

    Love your music, and you've inspired me to dust down the guitar and learn some Western swing. Wishing you a Happy New Year.

    Mikki, Was just taking a look at your site. This is one of the most beautiful sites I've run across in a while. It is soooo you - beautiful, inside and out. We see you are appearing in Bandera this Summer. We have been frequenting there quite a bit in recent times as I have been working with Bobby Flores' production company and shot other artists in the area. I have a really cool place you may want to use as a photo backdrop. Plus, plus - we would like to so much hear you sing at your performance as a special bonus for us. Your friends in Bryan, the Cash's. -- You've Been, SHOT-IN-TEXAS!
