NASHVILLE, Tenn. (July 27, 2015) – Country rockers Little Texas will hit the road in the coming months to support their latest studio album, Young For A Long Time. Since the album hit the streets in April, it’s been creating a lot of buzz for the veteran group, and fans are excited about the tour.

“The songs on Young For A Long Time really reflect life in a lot of the places we visit,” said Little Texas member Duane Propes. “We’re enjoying bringing this record to life onstage and listening to the reactions from both longtime fans and the new generation that are just discovering the band.”
Those journeys are what led the band to recently record “Slow Ride Home,” about the return of a fallen soldier to his Kansas hometown. The song—and the video that followed—were inspired when the band’s bus passed through miles of individuals lining the streets outside of Hayes, KS, where the soldier was from. “Slow Ride Home” was included on the band’s April 2015 release, Young For A Long Time.

Fans know Little Texas from the group’s more than 25 years of musical history, including 22 charting singles from the band’s ten albums. Little Texas reunited in 2004 after a hiatus, with original members Del Gray, Porter Howell, and Dwayne O’Brien joining Propes.

With the release of Young For A Long Time, Little Texas is poised to become more popular than ever. The new record received critical praise when it was released in April. Onestop Country commended Little Texas for their enduring crossover appeal, writing, “Their new album Young For A Long Time keeps the vocals key as they retain a modernized version of their signature sound. Their catchiness sits in the tempo driven songs that get you moving as they do with the title track ‘Young For A Long Time,’ the guitar riff laden ‘Why I Brought My Boots,’ the summertime sing-a-long ‘Yeah Yeah Yeah,’ and ‘Rednecks Do Exist,’ the latter which pokes some fun at the stereotypes of the south as they sing of seeing UFOs, going out muddin’ and hunting, and having bonfires.”

A complete track list of Young For A Long Time is as follows:

1. Young For A Long Time
2. Can’t Get In A Hurry Here
3. Why I Brought My Boots
4. Slow Ride Home
5. Rednecks Do Exist
6. Kings Of This Town
7. Yeah Yeah Yeah
8. Take This Walk With Me
9. Nothin’ You Can Do
10. How Many Chances
11. This Hot In Texas
12. What Might Have Been
13. God Blessed Texas
