Little Texas

I could swear that we have discussed this band here before but after a search I didn't find a thread topic about them. I use to love this band when they came out. Looked and sounded different that other country bands of the day, and that was a good thing. looked more like an 80's rock band (to a degree) and had influences from Skynyrd, Eagles and Alabama going for them.

I remember when LT hit the scene. First Time was a fantastic song. I loved when God Blessed Texas hit too! Great tune.

 

I'll never forget sitting in my car crying after a girl and I had a discussion as I dropped her off and realized things just weren't going to work out. Not much longer after I pulled out of her drive and What Might Have Been came on. Sitting at that stop sign and crying is still so vivid in my memory all these years later.

 

And I remember picking up my friends (a bunch of little hair metal freaks like me) and saying listen to this ballad and playing WMHB and them going "Wow!"... and them them being shocked when the next song that played was Only Thing I'm Sure Of. haha

Had almost an identical experience...still can't listen to the song today.

Haha, the did look like a Hair Metal band. Did two of the best ballads of 90s Country with "My Love" and "What Might Have Been." Both amazing. "God Blessed Texas" and "Kick a Little" fucking rocked harder than a lot of Hard Rock bands of that time and "First Time For Everything" is amazing New Country tune. Sadly underrated and forgotten.

There was a topic started a few years back about "Country AOR" bands - these guys were mentioned along with Restless Heart, Rascal Flatts and heaps of others. I'd love to find it again but it doesn't turn up in any searches.

here are a couple songs from Tim Rushlow's album. you can tell he was the voice of Little Texas and maybe the soul of Little Texas.

THIS IS A BEAUTIFUL SONG. THIS IS WHAT LOVE IS. not the sexual kind of love but LOVE AT THE HIGHEST. STILL this video makes me cry. being a care-giver has to be tough. to watch someone you love just fade away

Just out of high school I worked at the music festivals that still happen in Cadott, WI...Country Fest, Rock Fest, etc. I was a "stage hand" along with 4 other guys and the job was to get the musicians equipment out of the bus, trailer, etc. and assist in placement and set up on stage. Anyway, Little Texas was there one year and what a bunch of great guys. They hung out with the 5 of us after their show back stage just talking about everything, their lives, life on the road, one of them (the drummer I think) was getting married and how excited and nervous he was, and they thanked us for setting up their equipment, tearing it down, etc.

 

I don't claim to know their music that well, but yeah, I'm a fan.

 

Side note, another country music artist who was super cool is Vince Gill. He did pretty much the same thing before his show. Sat with us, asked about our lives, thanked us, etc.

 

Now Tanya Tucker on the other hand....b-i-t-c-h from h-e-l-l...I have another story but that would put a negative on this thread.

    • Imagine a world where Andrew Wood didn’t die and Mother Love Bone was still creating awesome music!
    • “My Icarian Flight” featuring the one and only ADV 😜  
    • lol, this was my thought process too. What about Confess?! I like both bands, but not at the expense of one of them.
