Desert Okies / Bio

Raised on the plains of Oklahoma, Chad and Travis Trout were born into music .By the time Chad was 8 he began singing in his father's ensemble "The Desert Okie Band", opening for Tammy Wynette, Bob Wills Band and countless others. The band created quite a following in Oklahoma performing in places like the Tulsa State Fair, Route 66 theater, V.F.W. Clubs, Cain's Ballroom, The Oklahoma Opry, At age 14 Travis was becoming a natural at guitar and music. The brothers made a mark in their hometown Bristow, Okla. Getting air play on KREK, and performing on Green Country's KTUL Channel 8 ( Good Morning Oklahoma). Chad would soon meet the late Del Reeves who produced him, took him to Nashville and recorded demos that led him to a deal with Mercury Records. Finally, the two brothers made their move to Nashville, Tn. Today they have decided to go back to their roots and play the music that was inspired by their dad. Together the boys bring back a tradition, a new brand of county, R&B, and southern rock. Adding an edge, to an old, and new sound of their own. DESERT= A Barren and uninhabited area; desolate: OKIE= someone displaced from Oklahoma during the Great Depression of the 1920s; more generally, a poor white person.
