Ten years ago, Greg Gardner strapped on a guitar over the shoulder that had on oversized chip for quite some time. Growing up listening to the likes of Waylon, Willie, Haggard, and Coe. Gardner found it easier to follow the outlaws trail until music and a desire to be heard grabbed his soul. After years of cutting his teeth in numerous clubs and honky tonks, Gardner was able to assemble his dream band, a diverse group of talented musicians who carried the same hopes as he did; thus, Voodoo Cowboy was born. This Texarkana-based band has since become the premier hard-core country band throughout Arkansas and east Texas. Whether headlining shows, like the Freedom Festival in front of over 7,000 people, playing clubs, or the stage with such stars as David Allan Coe, Doug Supernaw, .38 Special, Daryle Singletary, Charlie Robison, Confederate Railroad, and T .Graham Brown, Greg Gardner and Voodoo Cowboy have proven that they can bring the crowd to their feet and have them begging for more in any atmosphere. In 1998, Greg broke into the motion picture world playing along side of country music icon Randy Travis in the movie "White River Kid." The picture also starred Antonio Banderas, Ellen Barkin, and Bob Hoskins. After this break Greg was also cast as a member of Faron Young's band in the Faron Young Story, depicting the life of the country music legend. His trademark continues to be his live performances which he hopes will be captured in their debut album, due out in July of 1999. The album will feature nine songs, eight of which were written or co-written by Gardner. The album has something for everyone from hard-driv'n, jamm'n country in "Stone Cold Memory", two steppin honky tonkers like "Cowboy in the Sunset", to cryin' in your beer ballads like "Just This Side of Paradise." Greg praises the band as being the backbone for the album and live performances. Trey Dehan and Jason Radcliff provide the rhythm section on the lead and bass guitars respectively. Mike Calhoun pounds out the drums while Dave Young mans everything from lead guitar to steel guitar and even the accordian. Together they are a dynamic, energetic, talented band of cowboys that captivate the audience. The band's live shows are full of crowd favorites that include covers of their heroes songs such as Ray Wylie Hubbard's "Up Against The Wall Redneck Mother", Steve Earle's "Copperhead Road", and ZZ Top's "Balinese". When combining their energy and talent, the mix provides a strong potion that produces Greg Gardner & The Voodoo Cowboys!
