Country / Southern Gospel
The Texas wind blows a lot of artist to nashville. Some with a ragged box of songs and an old guitar. After years of banging on doors and making a few friends the wind blows the other way and a dis-hearted Texas boy is back where he started. But in some cases the Texas boy just makes a lot of friends and enjoys his life in the great state of Texas. Beau Renfro will tell you quick, he's from Texas and that way of life shows up in his songs. He only makes it to Nashville to record or visit with friends now days.
Beau's records are played all over the world now, thanks to the worldwide web. You may want to google his name to see all the places he has been in the music business. Stardust records in Nashville is home to this countryboy and after three albums and sixteen releases Beau Renfro is still going strong.
His music started as a lot of country pickers did, in church. Beau's dad was a preacher and his mother a sunday school treacher. Beau sang at the tender age of four with his eleven sisters, that's right eleven. Working with the family as a group in churches from Texas to Tennessee. People came from miles around to hear his family sing those good old gospel songs.
In 1985 Beau formed a band in Tyler,Texas called Beau & the Bandits and became the house band for the Oil Palace. Backing all the stars who came out of Nashville to sing in the 2500 seat night club. Stars included Bobby Bare, Moe Bandy, Joe Stampley, T.G. Shepard. David Houston, Charlie Rich, Mel Tillis and many more.
On one such night David Houston came in and offered beau a chance to sing on some of his shows. Beau jumped at the chance and for the next few months worked with David on the Louisanna Hayride and the biggest show of all, the Grand Ol' Opry.
