This dynamic band features an all-star cast of Texas musicians, led by singer/songwriter Lucky Tomblin, that takes the listener on a musical tour of the Lone Star State, where honky-tonk, western swing, blues, rock 'n' roll, Tex-Mex, blue-eyed soul and traditional country music get together for one big Texas celebration! Former San Antonio-based Lucky Tomblin was a regional favorite early in his career and a compadre of Doug Sahm, having opened for the late Sir Douglas on one of his Last Real Texas Blues Band tours.
The rest of the players in the band reads like a "who's who" of Austin's A-list and includes pianist Earl Poole Ball (Johnny Cash, Gram Parsons, Buck Owens, Byrds),
guitarist Redd Volkaert (Merle Haggard, Dale Watson, Ray Price), guitarist John X. Reed (Doug Sahm, Marcia Ball, Lucinda Williams, Kenneth Threadgill) and bassist Sarah Brown (Buddy Guy, Albert Collins, Dr. John, Billy Bragg). Play this one loud and throw some sawdust on the floor!
The Academy of Western Artists held its annual WIll Rogers Awards show on August 7, 2007 at the Granville Theatre in Garland, Texas. More than 30 awards were handed out in western, western swing and pure country categories.
The Academy of Western Artists seeks to preserve all of the western arts, including poetry, crafts and music. The Academy recognizes that this music fits well into the ever-growing classic country radio format so last year the organization began recognizing artists and organizations that fall into this category as well.
The Lucky Tomblin Band won the award in the category "Pure Country--Duo/Group."
