“It’s not always just the widely-known legends who can bring your heart to a standstill at the drop of a note.  And it’s also not always just the ones who can and do make a full-time living with their songs.  Now and again, if you’re looking, you’re going to trip across a vocal as pure as a woodland stream and as big as mountain air.  One of those belongs to Wade Hatton.  And finding the voice he’s packing is only part of the surprise.  The Texas Hat Band, together now for over a decade, boasts a blend of talent that many big-time, full-time touring acts can’t touch.  That’s not hyperbole, either. Grab a record, or catch a live set, but wire your jaw shut first.  You’ll be stunned at the quality, depth, and power of the music. The band made its mark, even taking home the 2007 Texas Music Awards Live Band of the Year trophy.
