As part of the Young Country movement of the early ‘90s, Little Texas were responsible for shaking up the country music world with a new, energetic sound that fused the look and attitude of modern rock music with traditional country themes and styles, bringing a much appreciated bolt of life into the genre. For their efforts, country fans the world over richly rewarded the band, buying up over 7 million of their albums, while critics showered them with 3 Grammy nominations plus honors from both the Academy of Country Music (Vocal Group Of The Year) and the Country Music Association (Album Of The Year).
Their first radio release in 1991, “Some Guys Have All The Love,” became a Top-10 hit, as did their next single, “First Time For Everything.” After the album First Time For Everything was released, five singles reached the top of the charts. The second album, Big Time, truly was the big time for Little Texas.

Standing here today Sonny demonstrates that what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.
International Country Music Star Jolie Holliday was born in Dallas, Texas. As a little girl, her mother introduced her to the love of music. By age five, she was belting out tunes for friends and family. Much of her childhood was spent with her grandfather on his ranch, “The Bar T”, in Karnack, Texas. While working together on the ranch, he encouraged her to believe in herself, and taught her responsibility, determination and faith were the keys to a successful life. She fell deeper in love with country music as the two listened to classic country greats like Tammy Wynette, Merle Haggard, Conway Twitty, & Dolly Parton. She began publicly performing in her early teens.
Jolie’s debut CD “A Real Good Day” was tremendously successful, garnering the Dallas native a number of awards, and entered the European charts at #1! She also received the Young Talent of the Year award at the German CMA Awards as well as Female Vocalist of the Year and Album of the Year at the CMA Indie Awards. Her follow-up CD “Lucky Enough” includes soulful country ballads, true to Jolie’s roots, along with up-tempo honky-tonk tunes, which feature her broad vocal range. The single “No Thanks,” reached #1 on the IndieWorld Country Chart. “I’m Coming Home To You” was in the top 20 on the Texas Music Charts. Her current CD, “Somebody Who Can” with the single release of “Waffle House” has received huge response on National Radio and the title cut, “Somebody Who Can” is quickly moving up the Texas Radio chart.
