Wylie Gustafson ’s performing career began in his teens. His break came when his band, Wylie & The Wild West, appeared on Ronnie Mack’s Barn Dance at The Palomino Club in North Hollywood, which helped them secure a record deal. That done, he moved Dusty, Washington, where he established the Cross Three Quarter Horse Ranch. Wylie remains a full-time cutting horse trainer and competitor, as well as a full-time musician. He has recorded over fifteen albums, and has played thousands of venues around the world, including more than fifty appearances on The Grand Ole Opry.
