The George Brothers have been playing music their whole lives, and it’s all they’ve ever known. They began performing in their mom and dad’s Gospel group when they were about 6 and 8 years old in Ozark, Arkansas. Then they got a little older and discovered Merle, Willie, Waylon, Cash…and Miller Lite. From then on they were hooked on a variety of southern rock and country music and added to their list of influences Skynyrd, Jerry Reed, Roy Buchanan, the Allman Brothers and songwriters like Dean Dillon, Rodney Crowell, and Guy Clark just to name a few.
By the 1990’s they were playing at least 6 nights a week, and in 2001 bought their own music theater in Northwest Arkansas called the Ozark Mountain Hoedown. The entertained over a million guests in their theater, and gained a large fan base in Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, and Louisiana.
In 2009, something sparked the guys’ interest…the Texas music scene. They had long been known for their love of Harley’s and their slew of biker friends who come in to ride before shows. Being on the road was like coming home…and the George Brothers bought a one way ticket. Texas didn’t seem to mind a couple of Arkansas guys joining the scene and their first album was a success, gaining excellent chart positions and receiving several awards including a DISCovery Award from Music Row magazine out of Nashville, TN.
In 2014, the brothers sold their theater to pursue a full time career on the road. They toured all over the United States in casinos, night clubs, festivals, and fundraiser events.
With the covid epidemic in 2020, the touring music scene was put on hold. Randall opened a studio (George Guitars) in Harrison, AR where he buys/sells vintage guitars online and teaches lessons on guitar/bass/drums. He also started a YouTube channel called the “Telecaster Guy” which has gained attention from guitar enthusiasts worldwide.
The summer of 2023 brought some unexpected changes as Dawayne had to undergo surgery for a serious illness. Randall made the decision to continue on for both of them, and both are hopeful that Dawayne will return to the stage in 2024.
In the meantime, you’ll find Randall as the Entertainment Director for the Blind Swine venues in Grand Lake, OK where he also performs every weekend at one of the locations.
