AMERICA'S COWGIRL LIVED IN CANOGA PARK


CHERISHING OUR VALLEY        2013


In 1947, the country and western signer Dale Evans married one of America's most famous movie personalities, Roy Rogers. While she had three previous marriages she remained with Roy Rogers of 51 years. Dale hit it big time when she became a regular singer on the Edgar Bergen "Charlie McCarthy radio program. She earned the status as "America's cowgirl" when she became Roy Rogers' co-star for Republic Studios in Sherman Oaks.
Dale Evans and Roy Rogers made their home prior to their retirement in Canoga Park. Many of Dale's and Roy's sequined and embroidered outfits were made by the famous "tailor to the stars" Nudie in North Hollywood.
