Biography

Drawing from country and rock & roll, Little Texas was one of the more popular country bands of the early '90s. The origins of the group lie in 1984, when vocalist Tim Rushlow teamed up with vocalist/acoustic guitarist Dwayne O'Brien in Arlington, Texas. After two years of working together, Rushlow left for Nashville while O'Brien finished up his chemistry degree. The following year, he followed Rushlow to Music City. They were subsequently joined by lead guitarist Porter Howell and bass guitarist Duane Propes, and the group began touring. While performing in Massachusetts, they hooked up with keyboardist Brady Seals and drummer Del Gray. In 1988, future manager Christy DiNapoli convinced Doug Grau from Warner Brothers to come listen to one of the band's performances in Birmingham, and he signed them to the label.

Upon signing the contract, the group named themselves
Little Texas -- after their old rehearsal spot on Little Texas Road -- and began touring the country in a beat-up van and a homemade trailer. By the end of 1990, they had enough material to record their debut album, First Time for Everything. The album was released in the summer of 1991, after the band's debut single, "Some Guys Have All the Love," became a Top Ten hit. The band really began to take off in 1994 with the release of their second album, Big Time. The album produced the number two country hit "What Might Have Been," which also became a minor pop hit. This was followed by "God Blessed Texas," a line-dancing favorite which reached the Top Five. In early 1994, Little Texas scored its first number one hit with "My Love," and Big Time went platinum. Later in 1994, the group released their third album, Kick A Little, which went platinum and produced two Top 10 singles in the title track and "Amy's Back in Austin." In 1995, Little Texas released Greatest Hits, which featured two new songs, including the number five hit "Life Goes On." In 1997, Little Texas released a second self-titled album. ~ Sandra Brennan, All Music Guide
