ABOUT TIM RUSHLOW
Tim Rushlow has already achieved so much more than most aspiring musician’s dream of accomplishing. Born in Oklahoma and raised in Arlington, Texas, Rushlow catapulted to fame as lead singer for Little Texas, one of the biggest Country groups of the 90’s. Between 1991 and 1998, the group charted 20 singles on Billboard’s Country chart, including the Number 1 hit “God Blessed Texas,” the poignant power ballad and crossover smash, “What Might Have Been,” “Amy’s Back In Austin” and many others.
When the group originally disbanded, Tim embarked on a successful solo career shifting from Warner Bros. Records, with Jim Ed Norman, to Atlantic Records. He scored chart-topping hits including his emotionally moving song “She Misses Him”, which became a Top 5 record hit and gained Tim the opportunity to be a national spokesman for the Alzheimer’s Association for two years.
Tim went on to have two more record deals with Lyric Street Records and Universal Records before taking a break from recording to focus on his ability as an entertainer on tour in his critically acclaimed unplugged solo show, “One Man, One Guitar, One Night”, which has taken him from club, theatre and cabaret stages across America to traveling around the world many times over performing for our men and women in the military.
Tim has an immense amount of drive and passion. When he hears the word “No,” he simply believes it means, “Not yet.” So in 2014, without reservation, Tim dove in headfirst to embark on his lifelong dream to record a Big Band Christmas record. The album, Tim Rushlow Classic Christmas, was recorded in Nashville using an all-star band and the top players from the Nashville Symphony. It was received with rave reviews, shooting the Rushlow penned radio single “What Do I Do With The Blue” to #16 on the Billboard singles chart and the album #16 on the Billboard Holiday Album chart where he settled in right behind Frank Sinatra, making another lifelong dream come true with his name being next to such an adored American icon.
Never being one to sit still, Tim felt the need to show his admiration and authenticity for this music and began planning his next gutsy and risky move. Tim decided to record a full Big Band live concert record and TV special in front of his peers in Nashville. After seeing the magical footage, it was decided to take it to American Public Television. APT was blown away at Tim’s ability to be so genuine and sing to their current demographic, yet be youthful enough to sing to a new and younger generation. Tim Rushlow & His Big Band LIVE showcases Tim’s dynamic vocal stylings with classics from the Great American Songbook. It was a national pledge drive for PBS from 2016-2018 and released as a live DVD and CD/DVD combo. Tim’s Big Band shows have won critical acclaim and have been well-received by audiences across the country.
With the recent strong resurgence in ‘90s Country and increased demand from his fans, Tim is once again focusing his energy into the music that first brought him to a global audience. He has recently written and recorded a collection of all new songs which will be the launch pad for the next phase of his career and he is very excited to be performing his unique brand of Country music – including his arsenal of hits from the soundtrack of the ‘90s and never-before-heard new music – for fans everywhere. In addition, Tim has just released his album, ‘Date Nite,” which features some of the top jazz and symphony musicians in the business in a collection of some of the most beloved love songs of our time delivered in a smooth and classic vocal style all his own.
Always a tireless and multi-faceted entertainer, Tim continues to entertain and enthrall audiences with his long list of hit country songs in solo acoustic, trio and full band shows and front his Big Band in dynamic “Rat Pack” swagger. Always “one to watch,” Tim Rushlow proves that great talent never goes out of style.
