Profile Information

Company Name:
About Me:
My family and I moved from Dallas, TX, where I was featured singer and a member of the house band at the original COWBOYS Niteclub, in Garland, Texas.

Within a few months of arriving in Nashville, I began working on the Hurricane Deck of the GENERAL JACKSON showboat, through good friend, Bob Fortner. Through Opryland connections, I did a Canadian tour with JIM ED BROWN Upon returning, Afterwards, I worked with legendary singer/songwriter, RODNEY CROWELL.

One of my first Master sessions to record was for legendary Texas Artist, GARY P. NUNN, (Famous four writing the theme to "AUSTIN CITY LIMITS" ). The album was titled, " ROADTRIP ".

8 months after arriving in Nashville, I auditioned and got the job to work with the incredible, TRISHA YEARWOOD I was with Trisha from 1993 - 1996, playing keyboards, primary BGV's and acoustic guitar. I played piano on her Christmas album , "THE SWEETEST GIFT", and sang BGV's alongside Trisha's long time producer, GARTH FUNDIS, on the song,"Hello I'm Gone" on Trisha's "EVERYBODY KNOWS" album. Touring with Trisha made it possible for me to do all the major network shows, including LETTERMAN, TONIGHT SHOW W/JAY LENO, KATHY LEE AND REGIS, THE TODAY SHOW, GOOD MORNING AMERICA, AUSTIN CITY LIMITS (excerpts from performance put on BEST OF AUSTIN CITY LIMITS, Video & CD) , as well as all the TNN shows, including the GRAND OLD OPRY , THE RYMAN AUDITORIUM, MUSIC CITY TONIGHT and CMA AWARDS SHOW. I've also been fortunate enough to play RADIO CIY MUSIC HALL, (Country Takes Manhattan), toured EUROPE several times with Trisha, (playing ALBERT HALL in LONDON) and the MIDEM Festival in CANNES, FRANCE. My first tour in AUSTRAILIA came when we performed with Trisha at THE GYMPIE MUSTER, outside of BRISBANE, AUSTRAILIA.

Also played with symphonies across the nation, including a televised special , shot in Daytona, Florida with the LONDON PHILHARMONIC, working alongside DISNEY composer, arranger and multiple Emmy Award winnder, conductor MARK WATTERS.

I began touring with PAM TILLIS in April of 1996 - 1999. Played keyboards/acoustic guitar, mandolin and accordian. TV shows w/ Pam include PRIME TIME COUNTRY, THE TONIGHT SHOW W/ JAY LENO, THE CMA AWARDS, THE 40th ANNIVERSARY OF THE CMA'S (TNN SPECIAL), as well as several Symphony and Christmas shows. Also was one of two U.S. musicians Pam used on her 2 week AUSTRALIAN TOUR in 1999 .

When Pam moved her show to Branson, I was called by SAMMY KERSHAW, to work with him. We opened for .38 SPECIAL and LYNYRD SKYNYRD as well as THE DOOBIE BROTHERS, among many other countrty artists, such as KEITH URBAN. and LORRIE MORGAN . After leaving Sammy,I took several months off and then began touring w/ KEVIN SHARPE ,during the summer of 2000, followed by Mustang Sally,

After VIRGIN RECORDS shut it's doors, MS was pitched to CURB RECORDS and an album was recorded and finished. But, due to some "unknown dealings" beyond our control, the deal fell apart.

From the ashes of MS, three former members of the band, (myself included), founded what would soon be called, Cowboy Crush. Curb knew the 3 members through our former affiliation with the label, which opened avenues for another record deal through the Asylum Records side of Curb. . A lead singer and a drummer were added, to complete the band.

During the year our record contract was being negotiated,(most of 2003), I was ecstatic to get to tour with the Great PATTY LOVELESS!!! TV performances include : CONAN O'BRIAN and THE TODAY SHOW in NY, as well as many TV spots on the GRAND OLD OPRY.

CC was signed in 2004, with our 1st single "NOBODY EVER DIED OF A BROKEN HEART" . That was also our first video, which debuted at # 17 on GAC's TOP 20 Video Countdown. CC toured EUROPE, (MWR) and JAPAN. My arrangement of the NATIONAL ANTHEM, brought CC our only National TV exposure,(other than the 1st video), thanks to our affiliation with NASCAR, singing the Anthem, LIVE at the 2007 BUDWEISER SHOOTOUT in Daytona, Florida and at PIKE'S PEAK Raceway in Colorado.

During more 'off-time' with CC, (Winter 2004-Spring 2005 ), I was called by my good Texas buddy, NEAL MCCOY !! During this time, I appeared in Neal's video, "BILLY"S GOT HIS BEER-GOGGLES ON", ' with Neal's band, "animal guy", JACK HANNA, and actor/comedian, ROB SCHNEIDER.

I was also very honored to be featured in the December/2006 issue of KEYBOARD MAGAZINE, (page 14).

The Blessings just 'keep on a comin' ! I have been asked to be Neal McCoy's NEW bandleader/keyboardist starting in 2009 !!
Thank you Lord for provision, direction and an incredible Artist to perform with!!

Even though I have recently moved to Branson, Missouri, I am available for 2011 showcases, sessions, or weekend Artist gigs (whenever not touring with Neal McCoy). Friend me, Becky Priest, on Facebook! C-ya!


Please leave me a message on this page or my Myspace page at:

My main instrument is keyboards/organ but play rhythm acoustic, as well as some mandolin and accordian. LOVE singing harmonies (Perfect Pitch).

I am "road-ready" with a current Passport, and 20 years of touring experience Nationally AND Internationally. I've seen ALL sides of touring. I am also endorsed by YAMAHA., (thank you Tony E. ) I use the YAMAHA S90 ES keyboard, as well as the ROLAND VK-7, as a secondary keyboard.

Besides Touring, I am available for showcases, session work (both keys and vocals), as well as arranging and 'orchestrating' tracks (as well as arranging harmony vocals),for any recording project!
Number of years working in Nashville area:
I have worked steadily since 1992 ! Thank you Lord! : )
Number of years in the music business:
Starting playing music for a living at the age of 18 years old ! : )
