She started writing songs at nine years of age, and in high school started what has now been documented as the first all-female rock band in the state of Oklahoma. After attending Tulsa University for one year, she played in a southern rock band in Baton Rouge, LA, then spent nine years in Los Angeles, writing, recording and playing the honkytonk circuit.

“Country music’s best kept secret,” is how People Magazine’s Ralph Novak, describes Becky.

Dalton, Ken Mellons, Shelly West, Helen Reddy, Shirley Bassey, Jane Oliver, The Cherokee National Youth Choir, Demi Lovato and more. Her song “You Are”, recorded by Glen Campbell and Emmylou Harris, was nominated for a Grammy in “Best Country Duet” category 1988. “Angels Among Us” (recorded by Alabama), has raised money for many charities throughout the world, including St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

Known for her high-energy shows, the Beckaroo has performed in over forty countries and on TV shows such as “Hee Haw”, “The Academy of Country Music Awards”, “Nashville Now”, “Statler Brothers Show”, and many more.

Past awards include Cashbox magazine’s Female Country Artist of the Year and the U.K.’s “Country Music Round-Up” magazine’s Most Promising International Act.

Ever since I was a young girl growing up in Bartlesville, OK, I dreamed that one day I would pay tribute to my 5th-great grandmother, Nancy Ward, Beloved Woman of the Cherokee.
