Rick Henderson has been in music his entire life - from singing along with records and banging on a toy guitar at the age of two - 'til now.   He received his first guitar at the age of ten...a second-hand, Silvertone, flat-top acoustic with strings "a foot high off the neck".   He learned the chords of G, C, and D from his older brother Mike and has been at it ever since.

He was invited to sing a song at a VFW picnic when he was eleven years old.  He sang "Your Cheatin' Heart", and he was bitten by the performer's bug.   He became a regular guest singer with Sol Tankersley and the Rounders. He was later joined by Doug Harlow, a young, talented, high-energy drummer, and the long journey down the music highway began.

Over the years there have been changes in musicians, and along the way there were different band names as combination of guitarists, bassists, pianists, steel guitarists, and others joined the journey.  The list of talented and entertaining performers that have supported the dream is a long one and goes on and on....
