Little Texas was conceived in Nashville, Tennessee, by a handful of guys in their early 20s who were willing to do just about anything to bring their brand of rockin’ county to the forefront of the music industry.
Before hitting the big time, the band crisscrossed America for three long years, playing every bar and honky-tonk from Myrtle Beach, S.C., to Los Angeles, CA, all the while writing songs that were destined to change the sound of modern country and perfecting a stage show that has been critically acclaimed worldwide. Known as “the hardest-working band in country music,” it was not uncommon for the band to play more than 300 shows a year without a bus, without a driver, without tour support from a label. They simply made it on their own, and that seasoning is evident even today. Their first radio release, “Some Guys Have All The Love,” became a Top-10 hit, as did their next single, “First Time For Everything.” After the album First Time For Everything was released, five singles reached the top of the charts. The second album, Big Time, truly was the big time for Little Texas.
Currently, the lineup’s on the concert circuit celebrating its official 21st year on the radio since their first single, "Some Guys Have All The Love," hit the airwaves in 1991. The music the band has generated over the years is timeless, and has been featured on hundreds of television programs including Good Morning America, American Idol, Don't Forget The Words, America's Got Talent & HBO's "True Blood," while "God Blessed Texas" has been the theme music for the Texas Ford Dealers commercials since 1998. “The four of us appreciate each other and still have a ball on stage,” says drummer Gray of the band’s chemistry on stage after all this time. “There is a comfort level that happens to us when we play together that can only happen with 20 years of experience.”
Opening for Little Texas will be James Montgomery and Friends
