Little Texas comes to Cherokee Roland for free show

15 February 2018

(PRESS RELEASE) -- The country-rock attitude and energetic sounds that broke into the country music scene in the early '90s is set to fill Cherokee Casino & Hotel Roland on 24 February. Little Texas is sharing hit singles from throughout the band's career on the Lee Creek Tavern stage.

The free, standing room-only show begins at 8 p.m.

Founded in Nashville, the multiplatinum-selling band was responsible for shaking up the country charts with a new sound that fused modern rock music with traditional country themes and styles. The band was rewarded by sales of more than seven million albums, three Grammy nominations, Vocal Group of the Year by the Academy of Country Music and Album of the Year by the Country Music Association.

Little Texas' first single, "Some Guys Have All the Love," peaked at No. 8 on the Billboard U.S. Country charts. The single was followed by others from the debut album, "First Time for Everything," including "You and Forever and Me," "What Were You Thinkin'," "I'd Rather Miss You" and the title track. Each single landed in the Top 20 on Billboard, while the album reached RIAA U.S. gold.

Other popular hits from the band include "What Might Have Been," "God Blessed Texas," "Amy's Back in Austin," "Kick a Little" and the Billboard No. 1 single "My Love."

In 1996 the band also charted "Kiss the Girl," a song from the Disney film "The Little Mermaid." The single reached No. 52 on the U.S. Country Charts and was recorded on The Best of Country Sing the Best of Disney Album.

Little Texas has released one live album and 10 studio albums, including the 1993 double platinum album, Big Time, and the 1994 gold album Kick a Little.

The band's continued radio rotation and generations of fans both old and new keep the band playing their classics and putting out new music. After more than 20 years of playing together, the musical chemistry is hard to ignore.
