Ron Young, a fixture in the Texas and Nashville music scenes, is bringing his music home to celebrate the release of his new CD.
Young and his band, Young & Restless, will celebrate the debut of "Under the Texas Radar" with a special performance at Olmos Bharmacy on Sunday, July 8. The album (which is already receiving airplay on KSYM) features appearances by Texas music legend Augie Meyers, as well as renowned musicians Sergio Lara and Ruben V, members of the award-winning band Tennessee Valley Authority, and more.
Young's songwriting career includes over 400 songs and more than a decade in Nashville; as he explains, "I've written a lot of songs for other people – publishers, and other musicians. With this album, I had a chance to record some of my own music, and the best part of that was getting to work with my friends and colleagues, people I've worked with and admired for years. "
