Thanks for checking out the 204th episode of The ETX ROCKS Show! In this episode, one of our favorite people on the planet is returning to the show for the second time. He grew up right here in Longview, TX, and honed his skills early on under the wings of Unkle Dallas! He learned his craft in long defunct venues all across East Texas in Blues and Rock & Roll! But he is most well known internationally as one of the first Country Artists of Native American descent to be signed to a major label! With 3 albums and 10 charting singles, he could also be considered the first of many video stars on CMT having charted several videos in their top 10 throughout his career. He was also reportedly the first country artist to have his own website! Lately, however, my friend and brother has been battling health issues that have chiefly happened because of a hard on your body lifestyle that many musicians deal with throughout their lives! Ricky Lynn Gregg, the 2017 guitarist of the year for the ETX Music Awards, is no stranger to working hard and playing harder. In this in depth, no questions barred interview, we ask Ricky the hard hitting questions about his lifestyle, his health, his outlook and why he is speaking up against drugs and alcohol! Don’t miss this introspective look into a legend!

The release of Ricky Lynn Gregg’s third solo country album, “Careful What You Wish For” (RMG Records, 2001), solidifies Gregg as a mainstay artist in country music. As well known for his edgy brand of country as for his scores of devoted fans, Gregg refines his talent on this 10-song disc, and says he is more proud of this project than any of his previous albums.

   Musically diverse, “Careful What You Wish For” is a clear reflection of a man known for his traditional country roots, his rockin country music, and his rangy vocals. This album truly offers something for every-one. From Victoria’s Secret, a deceptively simple Gregg-penned tribute to the inner beauty of women, to Tornado, the hard rockin’, comical story of trouble in a trailer park, this album ranges from southern rock, to stone cold traditional country, to contemporary country pop. Co-produced by Gregg, Barry Beckett and Eddie Gore, legendary blues man Steve Cropper even lent a hand on a few of the tracks.
