Lee Roy Parnell At Grand Ole Opry
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.
