Cheryl Rogers-Barnett is my guest on today’s podcast. As someone that works in the western industry, it was an honor to speak with the oldest daughter of cowboy legend Roy Rogers. I was excited to speak with Cheryl about her travels with Roy and his wife Dale Evans while having his horse, Trigger, as a pet.
After closing their museum in California, Cheryl authored her first book, Cowboy Princess: Life with My Parents, Roy Rogers and Dale Evans. The book shares her story of a life lived in the spotlight, covering details of their life behind the scenes of famous films and TV appearances, while publishing a plethora of photographs from the public and private lives of this beloved family. She then authored her follow up book, Cowboy Princess Rides Again. Cheryl and her husband decided to tour in their RV while visiting movie and music festivals on their book tour.
