Dale Spent his early years as a child in East Texas and then served his country in the United States Navy.
He loved to work with his hands and spent most of his life as a carpenter. Music was always his life, though, and he loved to play and sing with his friends in a southern gospel band at church as well as at Opry’s around the area. Very often, he could be found in his music room at home practicing on the newest songs.
Dale was an accomplished square dance caller where he was known as “Yodeling Dale Miller.” He recorded many records and was even on Charley Pride’s label. He called square dances as far away as the Calgary Stampede, among many other places.
