Del Rio, Texas native Radney Foster was born July 20, 1959, the second of four children. By the time he turned twelve, he took after his singing and guitar playing father and picked up the string instrument himself. He dropped out of college in 1979 at the encouragement of songwriter Randy Goodrum and moved to Nashville, where he pursued and acquired a musical career. In 1985, he found work at MTM Publishing Company, where he worked as a songwriter. After co-writing the Top 10 hit “Since I Found You” with Bill Lloyd, he formed the duo Foster & Lloyd and received a recording contract with RCA Records Nashville. During their time together for the next four years, Foster & Lloyd recorded three studio albums and had nine singles on the country charts.
In 1991, Foster signed with Arista Records, where he released the album Del Rio, TX 1959. On the album were two Top 10 hits, “Just Call Me Lonesome” and “Nobody Wins.” Later, two more singles made it into the Top 40, “Easier Said Than Done” and “Hammer and Nails.” Throughout his career, he made it into the Top 100 several more times, with hits like “Closing Time,” “Labor of Love” and “Willin’ to Walk.”
In 2009, Foster started his own music label, Devil’s River. Under that name, he released his album Revival, under the band name Randy Foster and the Confessions. With the album, he released a feature length DVD documentary on the making of the album. In late 2010, he rejoined Foster & Lloyd to release the album “It’s Already Tomorrow.”
