The roads leading into and out of Nashville have carried many Artists and Songwriters. Only scant few combine those travels with the kind of craftsmanship learned firsthand from the masters of Country Music. Having literally lived in the stables of Hall of Famers Hank Cochran, Red Lane, Max D. Barnes, and Waylon Jennings, Danny Griego has built his real life experiences into his trade. Penning songs recorded by the Legendary Waylon Jennings, Billy Joe Shaver, and Micheal Martin Murphey, Danny has lived his musical fire.
Cutting his trail alongside time-tested traditional recording artists like Marty Robbins, Danny’s sound includes a unique mixture of Spanish and English. His family legacy includes the founding of El Paso TX in 1598, and the colonization of Santa Fe New Mexico in 1610. This pioneer stock lends a rich authenticity to his music. Having performed over 3000 live shows, called “pay’n your dues” adds to his grit. Industry insiders consider his traditional country with a Spanish flare something unique. Words like “real,” “straight” and “grounded” are used to describe him. An avid hunter, fisherman, and horseman, this Cowboy singer hangs his hat in Texas. When we asked him what his favorite all time written work was, we expected him to give us a Haggard song title. He simply replied, without hesitation, “The Bible.” There are good works coming down the road from this Hombre!!!
Danny's music will be spotlighted all week starting on Sunday, July 14, 2013 on A1-Country, Lightning Country Radio. Listen Online: www.a1country.com
