Tim Rushlow, former lead singer of Little Texas who is the voice behind hits including “God Blessed Texas” and “What Might Have Been,” has started a monthly writers’ night at Hard Rock Café. His goal is to bring Nashville’s writers/artists into a relaxed living room setting where they tell the stories behind their hits, play songs that were influential to them, interact with the crowd and provide networking opportunities for those involved in the music business.
One man, One Guitar, One Night
March 29-30, 8 p.m.
You know Tim Rushlow as the lead singer of the country music group Little Texas which had several country music hits throughout the 1990’s before disbanding in 1998. After the Little Texas breakup, Rushlow pursued a solo career, making his first
solo appearance on the musical track “Totally Committed” from comedian Jeff Foxworthy’s 1999 album Totally Committed. In 2001, he was signed to Atlantic Records, and soon released his debut single, “When You Love Me”. It was followed by “She Misses Him”, which reached the country top 5. Tim went on to be a national spokesman for the Altziemers association as well, due to the overwhelming success of the song.
In 2003, Rushlow and other musicians(including his cousin, Doni Harris and the rhythm section of Jason Aldean’s band) joined to form a new group called Rushlow. This new group reached the Top 15 on the Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart with “I Can’t Be Your Friend”. Harris and Rushlow began performing as a duo called Rushlow Harris, which was signed to Toby Keith’s label. They toured the world with Toby all of ‘07 and some of 08’. They had an amazing song that paid tributeto the men and women serving our country called “ Bagpipes Crying” that has become a cult classic in the military.
Tim has also continued to do 2 tours a year for our armed forces around the globe. In 2009 Tim started to work on a critically acclaimed Christian pop record with Dove award winning producer of the year, Ian Eskelin. “I felt called to make a record
that pointed up and showed the hope I see and feel in my walk,” Rushlow stated.
It was right after this that Tim also started doing his now very successful “ Tim Rushlow, One man, One Guitar, One Night” unplugged show and it is now at the forefront of what Tim does best. “I am having a blast with my unplugged show, more fun than I have ever had on stage. It is so rewarding to weave stories and songs together into one intimate show and put an audience on my couch in my living room, if you will. To be able to share a wonderful arsenal of hits and other great show pieces in this unplugged format is just awesome, and the crowd have been amazing in their response to one guy just singing, playing, and sharing, no words really describe how special this show is!”
In the 20 years Tim has been making music, he has sold over 11 million records, won CMA Awards, ACM awards, is a 3 time Grammy nominee, and toured the world 5 times over for audiences and our troops. Tim has certainly made his mark from his humble start way back in Texas. Tim brings the show to the Mystique Casino on Friday, March 29th & Saturday March 30th at 8 p.m. each night. Tickets are just $15 in advance and on sale now at the Allure Club at Mystique Casino, or at the door the night of the show (pending availability).
Tim Rushlow, former front man for Little Texas, will continue with the second installment of “Rushlow in the Round” on Tuesday March 26), featuring songwriters Danny Myrick (“She’s Country” and “Truck Yeah”), Danny Orton (“Stand” and “Fall Into Me”) and Leslie Satcher (“When God-Fearing Women Get The Blues” and “Troubadour”).
Multi-platinum recording artist Tim Rushlow is certainly no stranger to the stage. Having fronted the country supergroup Little Texas through the 90′s
before moving on to a few solo hits and record deals since then, he has finally hit his stride.
On Tuesday, February 26th, Tim Rushlow will host a new kind of songwriters’ night for fans to get a much deeper look at those who pen the songs. The first installment of “Rushlow in the Round” will feature fellow songwriters Leslie Satcher, Allen Shamblin and Larry Stewart (Restless Heart).
Having spent the last year touring with his unplugged show event “Tim Rushlow, One Man, One Guitar, One Night,” Rushlow decided to develop a new kind of songwriters’ night.
“I started to realize that there is great value in sharing your songs, your heart, and the stories behind them.” “I love to play hit songs from my career as well as songs that influenced me growing up, you know, the ones that made me want to be a singer songwriter in the first place. It is really the soundtrack of my life.”
“Rushlow in the Round” is an interactive show where the stories, questions from fans and songs go to a deeper level than your typical writers’ night.
“I have always thought that a crowd deserved more than just the traditional set up quote ‘Here’s another song and it goes like this.’”
“Rushlow in the Round” will take place on the last Tuesday of every month in the Reverb Room inside the Hard Rock Cafe in downtown Nashville at 7:00 p.m.. Tickets are $10 for the general public, $5 with active military ID or FREE with a Country Radio Seminar 2013 badge.
In addition to big plans for “Rushlow in The Round”, there are even bigger things for Tim Rushlow on the horizon, including talks about television, radio and more!

KID ROCK, RANDY OWEN (ALABAMA), THE MARSHALL TUCKER BAND, SAM MOORE, RODNEY ATKINS, THE OAK RIDGE BOYS, AND TIM RUSHLOW (FORMERLY OF LITTLE TEXAS) PERFORM FOR FINAL CAMPAIGN RALLY EVENTS
NASCAR GREAT RICHARD PETTY ENDORSES MITT ROMNEY AT IOWA EVENT; CHRISTIAN ARTIST MICHAEL W. SMITH ENDORSES ROMNEY-RYAN CAMPAIGN
Boston, MA (Monday, November 5, 2012) – “Musicians For Mitt” continues during the final stretch to bring Governor Mitt Romney and Congressman Paul Ryan to The White House. Kid Rock will perform the final event tonight for Gov. Romney in Manchester, New Hampshire, while Randy Owen will bring the campaign trail for Congressman Ryan to a close in Wisconsin singing Alabama hits that lead him to become a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame.
Hitting Ohio during the final two-days included performances by Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member Sam Moore, The Marshall Tucker Band, country star Rodney Atkins, gospel-country group The Oak Ridge Boys, and Tim Rushlow (formerly of Little Texas), while various other artists including Big & Rich, Trace Adkins, Meat Loaf, John Ondrasik (Five for Fighting), Cowboy Troy, Lee Greenwood, Ricky Skaggs, Mark Wills, Lorrie Morgan, JoDee Messina, The Roys, Jamie O’Neal, Bryan White, Jett Williams, Baillie & The Boys, Lisa Matassa, Jeff Foxworthy, Collin Raye, John Michael Montgomery, T.G. Sheppard and more have criss-crossed the United States to entertain crowds at rally events.
“I love and respect my Country and I want it back! I want the Country that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and so many others including myself marched for; that we gave blood and sweat to help create, that’s why I support Mitt Romney for President,” says Sam Moore of Sam & Dave fame.
“I am supporting Mitt Romney because our country is in an economic mess and Mitt Romney is a businessman. The Oak Ridge Boys have to balance our books every year. Obama has exploded our budget and national debt. With the stimulus money, he used borrowed money to buy government jobs and pay off his supporters. Very few ‘real’ jobs were created. We need real change,” said Duane Allen of The Oak Ridge Boys.
Doug Gray of The Marshall Tucker Band stated, “We have been a small business for over 40 years, and we want to see other small businesses succeed. The Presidential race is drawing to a close, so we knew it was time to put our efforts to the cause. This is the most monumental vote that we will probably see in our entire lifetime – the most important vote to elect the next President of the United States.”
Christian artist Michael W. Smith endorses the Romney-Ryan ticket adding, “I value the sanctity of human life, I value the biblical definition of traditional marriage, and I value the principals this great nation was founded on. And that is why I support Mitt Romney for President. This is a man of great principle and integrity with a strong moral compass that , I believe, will be a great President – at a time we are desperate for leadership.”
It’s our responsibility as US citizens to exercise our right to vote. There are clear cut choices in this election that will determine the direction of our country. I will be casting my vote for Mitt Romney – and I hope you’ll consider doing the same.”
Rodney Atkins adds, “I support what Gov. Romney plans to do to support our military and families. And furthermore, I just believe in Governor Romney.”

TEMECULA —- Musicians can compare the craft of farming wine grapes and making wine to writing songs and making records. Tim Rushlow, Nashville songwriter, recording artist and former lead singer of the country/pop group Little Texas, has enjoyed his share of well-crafted songs such as the pop cross-over hit, “What Might Have Been” and the country music hit, “God Blessed Texas.”
Rushlow has toured with Toby Keith, hosted TV specials and is writing songs and performing his 2012 “unplugged” tour. But first, he’ll perform at 7 p.m. Sept. 9 at Leonesse Cellars.
“I recently filmed a Food Network pilot with an amazing chef named Gerard Nebesky up in Napa,” Rushlow said in a press release. “He would make these great paellas as I would write a song. Then we would unveil them both … We were all creating in our own different ways and it was magical. There are similarities in creating that I did not realize until that trip.”
A portion of the proceeds from the concert will support the children’s outdoor and environmental education programs at the Santa Rosa Plateau.
