Randy Carson

Randy Carson plays fiddle, lead guitar, and vocals.  He covers a lot of classic artists including George Strait and legendary Gary Stewart's hits.  Randy grew up in Oklahoma, and then started playing after high school with a regional popular band out of Seguin, Tx.  He then moved to Austin and owned a Piano store for many years.  Randy learned to play fiddle from the touring fiddler for Hall Fame artist Hank Thompson.  He also learned a lot from legendary fiddler Johnny Gimble.  

Randy has a unique family background, his dad Joe Carson was a nationally known recording artist for 11 years.  Joe started recording when he was 16 years old, and signed with Capitol records when he was only 19 years old.  He had a number of hits including I GOTTA GET DRUNK written by Willie Nelson, and HELPLESS that Glen Campbell played guitar and sang on.  Joe's mentor and recording producer was Tommy Albus, who gained fame as Buddy Holly's guitar player.  Joe tragically died in a car wreck when Randy was very young.  Randy was able to meet and learn from a number of major artists and touring musicians who all respected his dad's recording career.
