A Cowboys owner did once. Supposedly, the Cowboys' prospective owner Clint Murchison traded the rights to the song for Redskins' owner George Preston Marshall's support for an NFL franchise in Dallas in 1960.
It almost didn't happen at all. George Preston Smith, owner of the Redskins, blocked Dallas' entrance until Dallas bought the rights to Washington's fight song,"Hail to the Redskins". They forbade Smith to use it if he continued to block Dallas' entrance into the league.
There never was a female owner
The Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders are a part of the Dallas Cowboys organization, so their paychecks are issued by the NFL team. Charlotte Jones Anderson, daughter of Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, is the president and overall supervisor of the Cowboys Cheerleaders hierarchy.
The only reason I have ever heard is that the skins didn't want the cowboys in pro football. Somehow, the cowboys owner obtained the rights to the redskins "Hail to the Redskins" fight song and used it as ransom for the skins to agree to play them in pro ball. Don't take this as fact, though... do some more research.
The Dallas Cowboys' first year in the National Football League was 1960. In 2014, they will be competing in their 55th season.
Tex Schramm never owned the Dallas Cowboys. He was the team's president and general manager from 1960 to early 1989. But he literally was as powerful as an owner. For years, he operated the football program with little or no interference from the Cowboys' original owner, Clint Murchison.
Jerry Jones, who also acts as the team's president and general manager.

No body knows for sure the owner won't tell anybody how HE thought of it
He was fired by new owner Jerry Jones in February 1989.
I would have to say the Dallas Cowboys considering they have the richest owner in the league.
Clint Murchison, a Texas oil magnate.
