Little Texas
"The hardest working band in Country Music."
Genre: Country, country-rock
Members: Porter Howell, Duane Propes, Del Gray, Dwayne O'Brien
Hometown: Nashville, TN
Record Label: Independent

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, Calif., 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.
The sophomore release, which has sold more than three million copies to date, spawned three No. 1 singles—“What Might Have Been,” “God Blessed Texas” and “My Love”—and captured the group's first CMT Award, a Billboard award, a Radio & Records award and a Grammy nod.

Soon, they signed on as an opening act on an arena tour headlined by Clint Black. Later, they traveled with Travis Tritt and Trisha Yearwood on a tour sponsored by Budweiser. After that, they were on their own, with Crown Royal, singing to packed arenas across the United States and Canada. During this time, the band played a part in Common Thread: The Songs of The Eagles, which later earned their first Country Music Association trophy for “Album Of The Year.”....read more here.
