King grew up in the small west Texas town of Hereford. Once he came While at college at Texas Tech, he decided to start playing music himself. Two years later, he transferred to South Plains College, where he studied music production while also playing music on his own. He formed an Americana group called the Randall King Band, which released an album called Old Dirt Road before splitting. King then decided to go it alone and sing traditional country. He released the EP Another Bullet in 2016. Two years later, he issued “Tuggin’ on My Heartstrings,” the first single from his first full-length album

Trent Cowie Band is Texas country music with a taste of rock and roll. Hailing from south east Texas, their live shows pump high doses of energy into the room with outlaw country sounding guitar riffs, and easy on the ears vocals.
