Welcome to Cimmaron
Cimmaron has entertained and offered listeners country music with an edge doing it their way, with a combination of kickin' traditional, Outlaw rockin' country music that reflects the varied backgrounds of the band members. Cimmaron has performed nationally at Venues as broad as Boulder Station Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada to Disney Worlds Armadillos Saloon in Florida.
While the band is always busy performing at State Fairs and Festivals across the country, they always make time to continue to fine tune their distinct sound by appearing in hundreds of Night Clubs and Honky Tonks from Coast to Coast. The Band has deep-set roots in these smoke filled clubs and thrives on the response of a rowdy, excited live audience large or small.
Cimmaron has appeared on national television shows such as TNN's Music City Tonight, Prime Time Country, Miller & Company, Video PM, and Video AM. Their videos played on TNN & CMT and won the Golden Music Award in 1995 for Video of the Year and Band of theYear. Cimmaron is a favorite of nationally recognized music critic, Robert K. Ormann, and were guests on his syndicated radio show on WSM.
The band recorded their first CD, Losin' Streak, under the label Bent Tree Records. The second CD was the critically acclaimed, self titled, Cimmaron, on Alpine Records produced by Nashville's Johnny Rutenschroer. This CD produced several released singles that charted nationally not only on the Billboard and R and R charts, but Gavin, Cashbox, and The Mac Report as well. Their latest CD, 4U, is showcasing songs written by the band members. Cimmaron members are Guitarist, Lead Vocalist, and Harmonica Bobby Smith, Steel Guitarist and Vocalist Joey McCray, Bass Guitarist Brian Jones, Vocalist and Drummer (Kenner Drum Company Endorsee) Jerry Parris, Guitar, Banjo, Fiddle, Dobro, Mandolin and Vocalist Terry Hannabass, and Honorary Member, Josh Shilling, Keyboards and Vocals. Cimmaron's inspiration comes from a quote from the original Outlaw, the late Waylon Jennings, "Everyone is entitled to do it their way just once".
