Hawshaw Hawkins Jr.: Son of Jean Shepard & Hawkshaw Hawkins:
Hawk was born April 8, 1963 to Country Music Hall of Fame star
Ms. Jean Shepard. Hawk Jr was the second born son of legendary Hawkshaw Hawkins who had the number one hit song in the country “Lonesome 77203” and untimely passed away the same week, just a month before Hawk was born. Hawkshaw died in the fatal crash that killed Patsy Cline and Cowboy Copas.
Born to two very musical people, naturally Hawk found himself following in their footsteps at a young age.
Hawk learned to play guitar, and found he not only had a talent for playing, but his rich smooth voice was original and drew a crowd wherever he went.
Hawk Jr has appeared on the stage of the Grand Ole Opry both the old Ryman auditorium and the new Opry at Opry Mills, he has done shows with such greats as Bill Anderson, Jack Green, Roy Clark, Charlie Louvin, The Marshall Tucker Band and much more.
Hawk Jr also has also the writer of over 500 songs and has had cuts from artist such as Johnny Lee, Ronnie Mcdowell, Hank Williams Jr, Davis Daniel, Shawn Camp, Ron Williams, and several other acts.
Colene Walters was born in Detroit Michigan. The youngest out of 6 kids. She has been performing since the age of 17 touring throughout the Northern states as well as Canada. In 1990 she moved to Nashville and became a demo singer for several publishing companies and caught the ear of Porter Wagoner with one of her demos. She performed all of the duets that Porter Wagoner and Dolly Parton did in their career and became one of the only vocalists to sing solo on the grand ole opry in which she had a standing ovation with a Johnny Russell song (ain't you even gonna cry). Colene also became a member of the Johnny Russell band performing at the Grand Ole Opry and touring the country.
