& Texas Tradition
After seven years of cutting his teeth in the bars and honky tonks of Texas and honing his writing skills, native Texan Rodney Alexander has emerged as a traditional lyricist being influenced by the likes of Gene Watson, Merle Haggard, Waylon Jennings and George Strait. His lyrics in his songs ring true to his upbringing in the honky tonks as a kid in central Texas. With the release of his independent debut album ALL ABOUT HER, containing ten original songs, Rodney has set the stage to storm the Texas music scene like a west Texas tornado. After playing with Twisted Country for 4 years and having opened for Cross Canadian Ragweed, Bleu Edmonson, Cooder Graw and Jamie Richards, he has set out on his own journey to keep traditional country alive. If it was good enough for them, it is good enough for him! Rodney reached a pinnacle point in his musical journey and has recently joined forces with lifelong friend and drummer Larry Bradd, who started playing at the age of 6 to every 8-track he could find, to playing professional at the age of 16. Bass player extraordinaire Calvin Carnes comes from Summerville, Georgia, and is one of those guys that's just multifaceted and can play just about anything with strings. He has toured all over the country playing bass and drums professionally since he was the age of 15. Then there's lead guitar player Larry Rains who knows the fret board on a guitar like no one you've ever seen. Hailing from Abilene, Texas he has played with some of the biggest acts around. All of this added together has created a four-headed musical monster materpiece like no other, and together, they put out a dance music that is unquestionably the best dance band in central Texas. From their music to their original songs which give you that traditional honky tonk sound that Texas has been known for since the early '40s to their great live shows. This is one band that you don't want to miss. After releasing their first single "Last Call" to radio, the future is bright! Rodney Alexander & Texas Tradition have been getting a lot of attention and turning a lot of heads in the music industry. Be sure to check them out next time they are in your area!
