You don’t top a chart by accident, certainly not in Texas – you top a chart through hard work and talent. Thanks to an abundance of both, that’s what Hudson Moore did; topping the Texas chart in December of 2012 with his debut single. Written and co-produced by Hudson, the aptly titled ‘Fireworks’ not only rocketed all the way to the top spot… it stayed there for two weeks. It’s been a fun ride for the 22-year-old Ft. Worth native. Since starting as a teenager, Moore has played the famed stages of Texas and Oklahoma, from Billy Bob’s Texas and Gruene Hall, to the Austin City Limits Festival and South By Southwest (SXSW). Hudson’s self-penned songs are firmly rooted in country, though they’re equally influenced by rock and pop. Further, his fiery blues-inspired lead guitar work adds an additional dash of Texas grit to that genre-crossing blend of styles. In addition to rocking clubs on his own, Hudson has been a busy show opener, warming up crowds for legends like ZZ Top, Alan Jackson, Jerry Jeff Walker and Michael Martin Murphy, as well as other heavyweights like Pat Green, Josh Abbott, Chris Young, Kevin Fowler, Stoney LaRue, Reckless Kelly, and dozens more. 2013 will see Hudson expand his fan base even further as he books more headlining dates and continues to open shows for mainstream artists, including Multi-Platinum ® superstars Rascal Flatts and Trace Adkins. Hudson’s accolades in the press match his successes on the airwaves and the stage: The Country Music Association named him to the “Who’s New To Watch” list for 2013 in the CMA Close Up magazine. That honor comes on top of recognition from Country Line magazine, who dubbed him “Artist Of The Month” in November of 2012, and from CMT, who named him one of the “Top 10 Bands To Watch” at the SXSW Music Festival in 2011.
