About Ronny Hickman

THE MAN AND HIS MUSIC

Ronny's musical journey began at a tender age of 8 when he laid his eyes on a black-haired red rhinestone-suited fella wearing white custom pointy toed boots playing a metal flaked silver telecaster guitar. It was Don Rich and Ronny thought he was God. Don was playing guitar for George Jones at the time and George was doing some shows around deep East Texas for a land promoter named Barney Wiggins. Ronny began a love affair with an old badminton racket until his Dad got too embarrassed about it and bought him a guitar. He's had one ever since. That was over 50 years ago.

Ronny played with many bands around Houston as a lead guitarist but family and his job as a conductor for the Southern Pacific Railroad always took priority. About 10 years ago Ronny was spending a lot of time with the acoustics and writing songs about railroad life which culminated in this album. Everybody does railroad songs, but for Ronny, a veteran of over 40 years riding trains, it is something he is totally familiar with. Jack Saunders does a superb job on lap steel, mandolin, reso guitar and upright bass. Rick Richards percussion and Billy Hillman's lead guitar work is pure country.  Along with many other friends' contributions, they make this album a unique entry into the Americana genre.
