Radney Foster At Grand Ole Opry
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.
