A multiple award winning entertainer, Mary Kaye tours extensively throughout the United States and Canada with her unique brand of western roots music. She is a native born Texan and as a young woman ventured off to Utah where she “married her a cowboy.” Her family has deep western roots that go back six generations; they reside in the small western town of Escalante, a 140 year old ranching community in southern Utah, where her large family is involved in horse training, cowboying, and all things western. She has been married to her husband Brad for 30 years, they have ten children.

Mary Kaye recently released her forth solo studio western album, Ride A Wide Circle, to glowing reviews. Paul Riley of the respected Country Music People Magazine out of the UK declared, “Mary Kaye’s CD is one of those perfect albums. Everything comes together: the songs, the superb vocals, backing musicians on top form, very good production and best of all Mary Kaye’s unique feel for her music.” The magazine gave it a glowing 5 stars, their highest honor! The CD debuted at #1 on the Western Music Charts, and the title track earned a prestigious Wrangler Award from The National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum.

In 2013 Mary Kaye was recognized as Female Performer and Songwriter of the Year by the Western Music Association, also as Best Solo Musician by True West Magazine, and received a Spur Award from the Western Writer’s of America for her Butch Cassidy tune, “Any Name Will Do.” Additionally, she won the 2012 Song of the Year award from the Western Music Association with cowboy poet Les Buffham for their song, “No Wilder Place;” a 2011 Will Rogers Award from The Academy of Western Artists’ for Best Western Female Performer, and was honored as the 2010 Female Vocalist of the Year by the Western Music Association.

Mary Kaye’s 2013 album, The Dawn and The Dusk, hit #1 on the Western Music Charts and received excellent reviews in Western Horseman, American Cowboy, County Music People, The Western Way, and Maverick magazines. In addition, her song “Jealous of the Moon,” was chosen by American Cowboy as the Top Cowboy Song of 2013 and the album was nominated as the 2013 Western Album of the Year by the Western Music Association. Her No Wilder Place album also received excellent reviews in Western Horseman, American Cowboy, and The Western Way and debuted at #1 on the western charts. Additionally, Mary Kaye’s first western album, Clean Outta Luck, hit #2 on the charts and garnered a Western Music Association Song of the Year nomination for “Cowboy Waltzin’ Across Her Mind.”

Renowned western artist Maynard Dixon declared, “The spirit of the West sings in every soul.” Mary Kaye believes this and shares this spirit in every performance. Her music is rooted deeply in the Western landscape her life is immersed in. The critics have been prolific with praise for Mary Kaye’s singing and songwriting. Western Horseman said of her, “Some Western singers and musicians are all about preserving traditional cowboy songs. Others strive to write and sing songs about contemporary cowboy life…Mary Kaye does both well, and with an authenticity that appeals to not only purists, but also those seeking something fresh.”

Historic Ruby’s Inn is once again welcoming board game enthusiasts from across the country as it hosts the BryceCon game convention this January at Uta’s acclaimed Bryce Canyon National Park.


The event allows families and friends to gather and play their favorite modern and classic games while enjoying the dramatic scenery of Bryce Canyon, Red Canyon, and the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument.

“BryceCon is like family game night on steroids,” said Lance Syrett, general manager of Ruby’s Inn. “The convention was an overwhelming success last year, and we are excited to continue the tradition next year- especially as we embark on celebrating our centennial milestone at Ruby’s Inn.”

In addition to family-owned Ruby’s Inn marking is 100th anniversary in 2016, the National Park Service is also celebrating its centennial throughout the year. Special events are being planned at Bryce Canyon and Ruby’s Inn to commemorate the combined achievements.

Taking place January 15-18, BryceCon mixes tabletop favorites with the newest board game creations. the three-day schedule includes round-the-clock open gaming and scheduled gaming featuring card games and various tournaments.

“This is a golden age for tabletop gaming,” said BryceCon organizer Gary Tanner. “BryceCon is quickly becoming one of the best multi-day destination gaming retreats for players of all skill levels.”

The 2016 convention will include a raffle, flea market and game-design contest that will challenge participants to create a playable tabletop game in just two days. The convention will also feature an upgraded library of more than 300 games and a beginner’s track to teach game strategies for popular games like Ticket to Ride, Dominion and Settlers of Catan.

“The goal of BryceCon is to bring families and communities together through sitting down and playing games,” Gary said. “Games have the ability to create new friendships and teach new skills, and that’s what this weekend is all about.”

The Family fun will continue outdoors with great opportunities for winter activities at Ruby’s Inn, including the resort’s picturesque ice-skating rink. Plus, entrance to Bryce Canyon National Park is free on Monday in celebration of Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
