Texas Tradition A peace officer/certified welder from the small town of Johnson City, deep in the hill country, a park ranger from the nearby town of Blanco, a lawyer, a stage actress/director, a worker with special needs children and a college professor, all from the big city of Houston. All from different places - all with different backgrounds. Yet all had something in common - their love for the traditions of "hill country" music. The "hill country" of Texas, located in the south central part of the state between Austin and San Antonio, is famous throughout Texas not only for its scenery and historic significance, but for its traditional country music heritage. In the early 1800's, German, Irish and other European immigrants and Americans from the southeastern and midwestern United States began moving into the area to join the native American Indian, Mexican and Spanish population. Each of these cultures had its own musical heritage which, over time, blended to create a unique style of music, containing elements of the polka, waltz, Irish fiddle music, Native American folk, Mexican and Spanish influences as well as "old time" southern country music. With the expansion of the population of the area, the sound evolved into several genres, the most popular being traditional "honky tonk" or "two-step," and "Texas swing," with strong rhythm and emphasis on the fiddle and steel and electric guitars, and always led by strong vocalists. The "outlaw" sound of the seventies, led by Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, Jerry Jeff Walker and others, brought the area and its music to national and international attention, but the Texas hill country has always been a bedrock for the traditional country sound. These six friends shared a passion for the music and shared an idea - traditional Texas hill country music, updated and performed by accomplished Texas musicians. The idea has now become a reality - the Texas Tradition?CD - Next Time I Fall. The peace officer/certified welder, Donnie Mauldin, is a lead vocalist and songwriter. The park ranger, Kelly Dowdy, plays pedal steel. The lawyer, John Bland, is a guitarist and song writer. The stage actress and director, Jacque Bland, is married to the lawyer and is a lead and backup singer. The worker with special needs children, Becky Broussard, is a lead and backup vocalist. The college professor, Les Williams, is a record producer, engineer, music and vocal arranger, bass player and singer. These six friends, while earning a living at their "day jobs," had somehow managed to continue to perform regularly. All nurtured the hope that one day they would be in a position to devote all of their time and energy to their music. In 1997 John and Jacque Bland traveled to Europe and were surprised and excited by the increasing popularity of traditional country music in that part of the world. Sensing that the time was right, John and Jacque contacted their long-time friends and fellow musicians, Donnie, Kelly, Becky and Les. The six met in Austin, Texas. Amazingly, each of them were independently looking for a project. Each had reached the point in life at which there was time, flexibility and resources to give their best to the right opportunity. The Texas Tradition?concept was born. "Next Time I Fall" is the result. Texas Tradition? - the peace officer/certified welder, the park ranger, the lawyer, the stage actress/director, the worker with special needs children and the college professor - hope you enjoy it. It comes straight from the heart. Biographies Donnie Mauldin Donnie Mauldin has lived in the hill country of Texas all of his life. The son of one of the singing "Chimes" sisters (who recorded and appeared on the old "Louisiana Hayride" and other Texas/Louisiana venues), Donnie took up the bass guitar and began playing professionally at the age of 17. Donnie has performed in such venues as San Marcos Coliseum, Fort Stockton Coliseum and dance halls and festivals throughout Texas, and in the studio in San Antonio and Austin. One night on stage, the band leader asked Donnie, who was playing bass, to sing. The result made local music history--Donnie become a sought-after lead vocalist throughout the hill country. He has sung with Kelly's "Middle of the Fiddle" band and regularly with numerous other groups. Donnie starred in a music video promoted by the Lower Colorado River Authority of Texas, singing a selection he co-wrote. Donnie has appeared on stage with such greats as Chubby Wise, Daryl McCall, Johnny Gimble and Shoji Tabuchi. His studio work also includes the recording of an Elton John selection planned as part of a movie soundtrack. Donnie's wide-ranging baritone voice is authentic, honest and direct. He greatly admires and has been influenced by Hank Williams, Ray Price, Jim Reeves, Willie Nelson and Charlie Pride. Donnie continues to gain popularity as broader audiences hear his music. A man of integrity and commitment, Donnie is a licensed peace officer and has been employed as a certified welder by the same employer for more than 20 years. Music is his first love, and he is prepared to devote whatever time and effort is required to launch and sustain his music career. Becky Broussard Like many of today's popular artists, Becky Broussard's earliest musical experience came as a member of school and church choirs in her home town of Corpus Christi, Texas. When she was eighteen years old she began her quest for a career in the music business with an engagement at a local Holiday Inn club. Within a few months, she got her first opportunity to work in a recording studio as a jingles singer. More recording sessions followed, along with the chance to be an opening act for Jaye P. Morgan and Morey Amsterdam. After moving to Houston, Texas, Becky appeared in nearly every major club in the city over the next few years. She performed a variety of musical styles that ranged from jazz, to Rock & Roll, to Country. Becky continued her recording career by singing commercials for national restaurant chains, retailers and many others. It was her work as a jingles singer that led to an opportunity to sing as a background vocalist on recordings by Mickey Gilley, Johnny Lee and Freddy Fender. This, in turn, led to the chance for a brief on-screen appearance in the movie, "Urban Cowboy." As a member of the "house" band at a popular Houston Country and Western Club, Becky opened shows for George Jones, Ronnie Milsap, Juice Newton, Ricky Skaggs, John Conlee, Dottie West, Merle Haggard, George Strait, Tanya Tucker and the Bellamy Brothers. Becky has also been the opening act for Cheap Trick and Bon Jovi in Los Angeles for the National Finals of the prestigious Yamaha Sound Check contest. Now living in Katy, Texas, a small town near Houston, Becky works with special needs children while she continues her professional music career. Becky's influences include Bonnie Raitt, Etta James, Aretha Franklin and Tammy Wynette. Kelly Dowdy Kelly Dowdy was born and ...
