In 1953, two events boosted Dusty's career: He began recording for the Columbia Record Co. and he was signed to an exclusive writer's contract by Fred Rose of the Acuff-Rose Publishing Co. in Nashville.
In the next three years he had four hits on the charts: "Hello Operator", "Just Call On Me", "if That's The Life You Want To Live", "Once More". Through the years "Once More" has been recorded over 100 times.  The artists include:
Roy Acuff, Osborne Brothers, George Jones, Melba Montgomery, Vince Gill, Leona Williams, Bill Anderson, Don Gibson, Red Sovine, Hank Locklin, Floyd Cramer, Porter Wagoner, Dolly Parton, Shoji Tabuchi, Desert Rose Band et Mike Headrick.

In 1971,  "Once More" was recorded by Floyd Cramer in his album "Country Music Hall of Fame."
Roy Acuff's recording of "Once More" was officially placed in the "Hall of Fame" museum in Nashville.
In 1983, Dusty Owens, along with 49 other artists, was recognized by WWVA  for making the greatest contributions to country music in the last 50 years.   50 bronze stars with names imbedded in the sidewalk in front of the Capitol Theatre in Wheeling.  Included were Johnny Cash, Tammy Wynette, Charley Pride, Merle Haggard, Hawkshaw Hawkins, Loretta Lynn, Marty Robbins, Elton Britt, Dave Dudley, Tom T.

Dusty did a guest appearance on the Don Ho show in Honolulu.  The crowd gave him a standing ovation.
Dusty has appeared in various places in Florida,  including the Florida Opry in Plant City, FL, where he has been brought back several times by popular demand. In 2004, Dusty appeared at the Strawberry Festival where he headlined a show along with Tommy Cash.
