    Everything You Need to Know About Little Texas

    August 29, 2017

    Since their debut album in 1992, country rock group Little Texas has been tantalizing listeners with their catchy tunes and inspiring them with thoughtful lyrics about triumphs, love, struggles… and Texas, of course.

    Whether you’re a longtime fan or you’re first hearing about this band now, we’ve rounded up everything you need to know about Little Texas.

    1. Little Texas has won a lot of awards

    From that first album in the early nineties until now, Little Texas has sold more than 7 million albums, earned 3 Grammy nominations, and won CMA’s “Album of the Year” award. The Academy of Country Music even named them Vocal Group Of The Year, which is a huge honor. There’s no debating it – these guys are seriously talented.

    2. They have a lot of hits

    Their sophomore release had three No. 1 singles – “What Might Have Been,” “God Blessed Texas” and “My Love”, which earned them their first Grammy nomination.

    2. They are the hardest working guys in the business

    These guys play more than 300 shows a year, earning them the well-deserved title of “Hardest Working Band in Country”!

    3. They have a sound entirely their own

    Little Texas was known for bringing a new flavor to the world of country music back in the early nineties when they released their first album, First Time for Everything. This freshman release fused conventional country sounds with the energy of rock and roll, breathing life into a traditional genre. There’s no question why some refer to them as “Little Texas Country Rock Band”. You just can’t sum up their sound with just one genre.

    4. They’ve been together for a long time

    This four-person band has so much experience playing together that they have found a certain harmony that drummer, Del Gray, says creates a comfort level you can only get after 20-plus years performing together.

    5. They recently released a new album

    Their last album came out in 2007, so Little Texas fans are overjoyed with the release of their eighth album, Young For a Long Time. The sound is more confident and full of life than ever.

    6. They’re rocking the house at Lady Luck® Casino Caruthersville with an exclusive Little Texas Concert
