"The New King Of Western Swing"

A long time before Alabama, Restless Heart, Exile, The Mavericks, Etc. came into musical prominence, there was a band out of Austin, Texas called by many "The Best Band" named "Cooder Browne" who led the way and opened the door for others to walk through.

The Man that put them together, got them the job opening act for Willie Nelson and a contract on Lone Star and Mercury Records was Colonel Buster Doss.

Ater the break-up of the band in 1980, The Colonel moved back to Nashville to manage Grand Ole Opry acts Billy Walker, Billy Grammer and a dozen others. There he began to develop the "Rooster Quantrell" idea. He called a life long amigo of his, Max Harrison (who drew the Gene Autry & "Smiley" Burnette comic books) to draw up the logo for "Rooster Quantrell".

But the right person had to be found to portray "Rooster"! It was a long I search! This person not only had to have a great voice but would have to be a top-shelf musician to meet the standards the Colonel wanted and had set for "Rooster Quantrell.

The Colonel has owned Country Music Theaters (The Frontier Jamborees) from Missouri to Texas, and it was on one of his Jamborees in Ashdown, Arkansas that he found "Rooster". A young man who plays Trumpet, Piano, Guitar, Bass, Etc. The Colonel began to develop his musical style. A lot of rainy nights and long days went into this project before "Rooster" began to emerge.

Reguarless of who made what into whom,  "Rooster" is a very talented young man in his own right who possesses a deep rich voice with a simplistic ease in the delivery of a song.  The album is loaded with 20 great songs. If you're a fan of Western Swing, you'll soon be a fan of "Rooster Quantrell"!
