Pat Green

April 5, 1972, San Antonio, TX

In 1995, Green independently recorded and released a series of albums produced by Lloyd Maines using money borrowed from his parents. Green did not commit fully to his music career until 1997 when his stepfather fired him from his job as a fuel wholesaler. Green had been counting his money from a weekend of singing and his stepfather knew he would need motivation to fully pursue music as a career. After committing to music, Green drew the attention of Willie Nelson and joined a tour featuring Nelson and several other famous country musicians. Green's appearance at the 1998 Willie Nelson 4 July Picnic was his first step towards nationwide recognition, and he was soon playing sold out shows in Texas. Green was sponsored by Miller Lite and sold more than 250,000 albums, even without signing a major label recording contract. ~ Wikipedia: Pat Green ~ retrieved June 28, 2014 © Wikipedia

Tapped in People magazine as “the Springsteen of the South West,” he has become a cultural force selling out venues from House of Blues in Los Angeles to Nokia Theater in Time Square, down to the Houston Astrodome in Texas. Known for his infectious enthusiasm for music and life, Green’s energy is contagious and sends a charge through a live audience. ~ Sugar Hill Records: Pat Green ~ Retrieved June 28, 2014 © Sugar Hill Records
