Bert Dodson started out in show business as a member of the western band The Light Crust Doughboys. He later ended up working at a radio station with Fred S. Martin and Jerry Scoggins. The three became friends and formed the musical group The Cass County Boys, in which Bert played the bass, Fred played the accordion and Jerry played the guitar. During World War II, legendary cowboy star Gene Autry, who was stationed at Love Field Airbase, heard them perform. He liked the group and offered them roles on his radio show and in his movies.
