WEST SILOAM SPRINGS, Okla. – The energetic sound and country-rock attitude that broke into the country music scene in the early ‘90s is set to fill SEVEN Bar on Jan. 19. Little Texas comes to Cherokee Casino & Hotel West Siloam Springs, sharing hit singles from throughout the band’s career.
Little Texas takes the stage for the free show at 9 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 7 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 US 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 US Gold.
Other popular hits from the band include “What Might Have Been,” “God Blessed Texas” “Amy’s Back in Austin,” “Kick a Little” and 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 US 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.”
