Texas native Lee Roy Parnell began his music career at an early age, when he was six years old on the local radio show of superstar Bob Wills. Parnell was born in December of 1956 in Stephenville, Texas; his parents were friends of Wills. In his teens, Parnell took up drums and the guitar and played in Kinky Friedman’s Texas Jewboys in the early 70s. In 1987, he moved to Nashville and became a regular at the Bluebird Café. Two years later, he signed with Arista Records and released his first album.
Since 1990, he has released eight albums and seven Top 10 singles. He has reached the Number Two spot three times with “What Kind of Fool Do You Think I Am,” “Tender Moment” and “A Little Bit of You.” He has reached the Number Three spot two more times with “I’m Holding My Own” and “Heart’s Desire.”
In 1997, his instrumental song “Mama Screw Your Wig on Tight” was nominated for a Grammy for Best Country Instrumental. Parnell has also co-written two Top 40 country hits for Pirates of the Mississippi and Collin Raye, “Too Much” and “That’s My Story,” respectively.
