|GET TO KNOW GARY!
Gary is back!!! You may have seen Gary out on the road with his band playing shows around Texas as well as a few other states and a few foreign countries. However, the
last time Gary had a song on the radio was 2007. TBG Entertainment, the label promoting Gary's music had sent out press releases two times in the past prematurely
believing Gary could manage the pressures of the road on a consistent basis not fully aware that Gary's traumatic experience in May of 2007 left Gary emotionally impaired to
the point it could take years for him to deal with his emotions in the proper manor.
May 12th 2007 would prove to be the day that would bring Texas fastest rising star of the time, to his knees. While riding the fast track to success, Gary had gotten a weekend
off to be at home with family. Though his name was firmly at the top of the charts with George Strait, Kenny Chesney and others Gary was at home fully expecting to spend
time with his son Randy and his family. But a 9:00 am phone call would change all that when his ex wife and mother to his 18 year old son Randy and a Police Officer
explained to Gary that just after midnight that same morning, Gary's son Randy had been driven across the state line into Louisiana and murdered.
At a show in Austin, Texas Gary's emotions finally got the best of him.

I CONSIDER MY GREATEST ACCOMPLISHMENT TO BE......
The father of two great boys.
I CONSIDER MY GREATEST CAREER ACHIEVEMENT TO BE...
It hasn't happened yet.
THE PERSON I WOULD LIKE TO CUT A DUET WITH...
Sherrie Austin, Martina McBride and Kelly Clarkson
MY MOST EMBARRASSING MOMENT WAS...
Microphone stand collapsing down when I was adjusting it live on stage.
THE FUNNIEST THING THAT EVER HAPPENED TO ME ON STAGE IS...
A lady threw some lace panties on stage and they landed on the neck of my guitar.
THE MOST TOUCHING THING A FAN HAS EVER DONE WAS...
Post my music on there page, tell me how one of my songs helped them in some way and or told me I was there favorite singer. I can never express how much that touched
MY BIGGEST PET PEEVE IS...
Drama, I don't want to hear it! Then band personnel not learning the songs the correct way. My biggest by far is people who are inconsiderate to others as well as those who
abuse children and elderly folks.
MY BIGGEST CHARACTER FLAW IS...
Putting things off or running late.
SECRETLY, I'VE ALWAYS WANTED TO...
It used to be to have the largest-selling album of all time or win CMA and ACM Entertainer of the Year but those are pretty much useless to me now since Nashville over
commercialized and went Hollywood. I mean the last CMA Awards Show looked like a circus for kids complete with Minstral show.
A HABIT I'D MOST LIKE TO BREAK...
Drinking soft drinks (currently working on cutting those out all the way!)
THE QUESTION I LEAST WANT TO HEAR IN AN INTERVIEW...
"Can you please tell us about your personal life?" The short answer is "Uh... No!!!" lol...
