Radney Foster – Nobody Wins

For more than 30 years, Radney Foster has wowed the critics and fans alike with his amazing songwriting. Some say his sound came from growing up and hearing conjunto music in South Texas mixed with the classic Country he heard during his summer trips to visit his grandparents in East Texas.

Radney’s first success was with the seminal country/cowpunk duo Foster & Lloyd, whose single, “Crazy Over You,” went straight to #1. His subsequent solo albums told tales through a honky tonk lens and yielded enduring hits “Just Call Me Lonesome” and one of his biggest hits, “Nobody Wins.”radbenchjpg

Considered an elder statesman of Texas singer-songwriters, Radney has been a friend and mentor to many younger artists on the Texas scene including Jack Ingram, Randy Rogers, Wade Bowen, Pat Green, Kyle Hutton and Kacey Musgraves, to name a few. He can even take credit for convincing Musgraves to move to Nashville. “He was actually one of the people who really convinced me to move to Nashville, because I met him when I was in Austin,” she has been quoted as saying. “One of the things he told me was, ‘You’ve got to be present to win.’ And it really struck a chord with me, and I decided to move.” His songs are also regularly mined by superstar acts like Keith Urban, Sara Evans, Darius Ruckur and the Dixie Chicks.

Radney’s been writing a long time…in fact he started writing songs in junior high, in college he dabbled in poetry and now he’s expanding his writing into short fiction. He says he plans to release a book as soon as he can find a publisher. And even though he’s released 15 albums over his 30-year career, he doesn’t seem to be stopping anytime soon!

To say we are excited to have Radney Foster as our headliner for our 7th Annual Real Life Real Music Festival is an understatement!
