“They both are incredible songwriters, and, individually, they are great artists. Together, though, it is something extra special. Their songs come from life on the plains and out of East Texas. They are songs that you'll recognize, even though you've never heard them.” - Russ Tidwell of Garden City, KS

About The RandyBoys
When two award winning songwriters, Randy Palmer of Amarillo, TX and Randy Lewis Brown of Mineola, TX met during the weekend in Kansas City a couple of years ago, the results of their first co-write was titled High Plains. From the very first it was clearly evident that the two were destined to write together. Palmer’s down home, family focused songwriting blends perfectly with Brown’s philosophical and poetic approach. Sometimes the result of a collaboration is greater than the sum of the parts and this is certainly one of those situations. Tagged by mutual friend Charlie Stewart of Handshake Management as the RandyBoys, the name instantly stuck. So what do you get when the high plains meet tall pines? You get Americana/Folk songs, expertly crafted with both heart, mind and a sense of place, delivered with soul, grit and honesty.

Take US80 east out of Dallas and you will see the black land and post oaks give way to sandy loam and tall pines. When you have crossed that gradual boundary you have entered the land known as the East Texas Piney Woods or semi-affectionally a the “Pine Curtain". This is an area not fully the "Deep South" and not fully Texas. Just outside of the town of Mineola, a few miles past the piney border resides Randy Brown , the purveyor of equal parts; hard truth and bald faced lies. He won't tell you which is which but will instead leave that I the listener to discern.
