Pat Alger

Great song writer, even if you don't know his name I'll bet you know his songs and can even sing along.

Hard rocking guitar player who writes tremendous songs , produces wonderful records and has a grammy to boot. See him live any place you get the chance!

Terry Allen

Terry Allen is a fabulous Texas songwriter whose music is way too under appreciated he is also the co- author of the stage play "Chippy".

Mandy Barnett

Starred as Patsy in the stage production "Always Patsy Cline". Think about it, there are not too many female voices that can pull that assignment off, Mandy's voice fills the bill with room to spare.

A sweet singing cowgirl, with a pretty smile that can yodel too!

Matraca Berg

Rosanne Cash

Child of the Man in Black, Rosanne has had a long musical career of her own, marked with great songs and productions from former husband Rodney Crowell. Her great body of work is full of her rich honest voice wich fell close to the parent tree.

Guy Clark

Guy Clark ia a first generation Texas song writer who like a master craftsman carves his songs with exquisite detail.

Rodney Crowell

A tremendous song writer, producer and preformer and Rosanne Cash's former husband. If Hollywood was smart they would get thr rights to a screen play called Rosanne and Rodney, select the sound track from songs on their various discs. The film most likely would win an Oscar for the sound track and a Grammy too!
