“Radney Foster is one of the most talented singer/songwriters of our time. His voice is so unique, sexy and engaging.” – SARA EVANS
“Foster remains a top-notch tunesmith and stunning lyricistâ€¦echoes early, electric-era Bob Dylan…” – GORDON ELY, BILLBOARD
“Thirty years ago, Radney Foster opened up his heart, wrapped it in lap steel and Fender guitars, shouted it from a microphone mountain in a voice of bluebonnet twang, and created a work of riotous loss along the lines of Merle Haggard or Buck Owens, says author/historian Peter Cooper. “Del Rio, TX 1959 is an album that mines the personal to unearth the universal.”
“Del Rio, TX, 1959 is what inspired me to sing Country music,” says Daruis Rucker. “It’s the ultimate album.” The collection produced five singles on the country charts: “Just Call Me Lonesome,” “Nobody Wins,” “Easier Said Than Done,” “Hammer and Nails,” and “Closing Time.”
Foster first gained attention as half of the duo Foster & Lloyd (who, with “Crazy Over You” became the first duo in history to top the Country charts with their debut single).
