The Lawson Vallery Band
Lawson Vallery sure has come a long way since taking guitar lessons from Roy Orbison. He grew up in the Texas oil fields listening to radio broadcasting songs from the Grand Old Opry about cowboys, broken hearts, and trains. Poetry and music have always been a passion, but there was one he kept in his back pocket until just a few years ago. In 2011 he published a collection of poems and lyrics in his book, “From The Heart.” We look forward to celebrating their latest album release - No Deposit, No Return - with you at this year's event!
