Pat Green At Grand Ole Opry Country Music Show - Nashville
Born in San Antonio in 1972, Texas Country artist Pat Green has recorded ten studio albums with fifteen charted singles. Green’s former Air Force officer father has been listed as the primary influence of his love of music. He started his music career when he was eighteen at Texas Tech, where he played small gigs at bars and clubs in the area. In ’95, he independently recorded and released a series of albums with the financial assistance of his parents. When his step-father fired him from his job as a fuel wholesaler to give him the motivation he needed, Green officially began fully pursuing music as a career. He eventually drew the attention of Willie Nelson and appeared at the 1998 Willie Nelson 4 July Picnic, his first step towards national recognition. Soon after, shows by Pat Green were sold out in Texas. Without ever singing a major label recording deal, Green soon was selling over 250,000 albums.
