JUNIOR GORDON BIO
It use to be that when you said your hometown was Alvin, Texas, everyone thought of a certain very famous and fantastic baseball player.
Now, there is another name associated with the town where talent abounds. The Junior Gordon Band began its trek to the top in music in Alvin, but the group is now seeing their fan base expand, and their latest album, “BIG” making a (dare we say it?) BIG impact on country music. Along with a new album “Made In The U.S.A.”, That was released in late September 2016. As of March 2016, they have their first ever top 10 single with “I’m Breaking In” blazing through and burning up every stage they set foot on. People just simply love the talent, beat and message of the band. Sharing the stage with Easton Corbin, Cody Johnson, Bri Bagwell, Lee Brice, Tracy Lawrence, Sammy Kershaw, Johnny Lee, David Allen Coe, Tracy Byrd, Sam Riggs, Eli Young, Sundance Head, Roger Creager, Kevin Fowler, Kyle Park, Cory Morrow just to name a few.
Alvin and many of its surrounding neighbors know and love the sound of The Junior Gordon Band, but now talk is spreading across the state of Texas, along with Oklahoma, Amarillo, Louisiana, Kansas, Switzerland, and France. Texas is still home but no longer the only stage they are on.
In April 2013, The Junior Gordon Band was nominated by The Houston Press for Best Band of the Year; Best Local Video of the Year and Junior himself was nominated for both the Local Musician of the Year and Best Male Vocalist! The selection process is tough, and with so much talent in Houston and across Texas, but being considered for not only one, but THREE awards is an amazing thing! In 2014 Junior was nominated as Best Country Artists and Male Vocalist of the year. Then again in 2015 being nominated for Male Vocalist of the year, with hopes of 2017 also happening now, that is sheer talent! Being featured on several television shows including Great Day Houston and an outstanding 17 Shows with The Houston Livestock Show in Rodeo in 2016 was a blast. 2017 makes the fifth year that The Junior Gordon Band has been included in an abundance of shows for H.L.S& R.
The Band has a distinctive sound that makes crowds love them. The Junior Gordon Band’s heartfelt, soulful lyrics leave listeners with a menagerie of emotions from one song to the next. From the love of music that would be sacrificially ditched in a heartbeat for the love of a woman in “This Old Guitar” to the clever humor in “Mexicoma”, “Before Beer” or “Aftwerwife” to good ole boy flirtation in “Country Lovin” to passion in “Even If It Kills Me” and “I’d Find You”, listeners can speculate that Junior clearly has a muse that has captivated his heart. Junior and the guys have a good reason to celebrate, 10 consecutive top 40 singles, with four of those being top 20 songs!
When Junior sings, he sometimes gets so wrapped up in the music that he can actually make up words, causing sometimes romantic, sometimes humorous country songs, or even a mix of country and rap…something he calls “C-RAP”. Thanks to a really talented group of musicians who can keep up with the lead singer, they never miss a beat. They just have a stage presence that leaves fans with an ear-to-ear grin at the end of the night.
Attending one of the Junior Gordon shows will never leave you bored; just enjoying talented musicians, and funny, unexpected events that leave you laughing while Junior runs through the place!
You will want to get a “Potato Launched T-Shirt” and sit back and enjoy much more than talented musicians. There’s plenty of high energy on stage. When Junior gets after it, he is known to jump off stage, and even on top of bars and banisters. (Just be warned)
Now, that is total entertainment!
But, don’t think these guys are a comedy show alone. Their music is what they live for, what they bring to you for entertainment and what they want you to hear and enjoy even after you leave. (That’s why you will head to the store to get your own copy of their albums)
The Junior Gordon Band isn’t all lovin’ and leavin’ and it’s evident in their spunky, playful beer drinking song “Good Friend of Mine,” and their downhome “County Fair.” The band takes the beautiful things life has to offer, right at our fingertips, and expresses those thoughts and feelings in songs about everyday life; songs that make you pause and think about life’s precious gifts, songs that are relatable on all levels, songs that make you turn the car around, head home, hug the wife and kids and take that vacation you’ve been putting off.
Junior want's families, just like his own, to enjoy their music, enjoy the show and want to hear more and look forward to the next time they will have an opportunity to come back.
You see, family is a big part of The Junior Gordon Band. You will notice it in their pre-performance group prayer and down time as well.
