Straight Shooter is a Country and Red Dirt rock band from Oklahoma ..

They take their name from the expert marksmanship of the members and their commitment to treating everyone with fairness. In the early days they played small clubs until they got a break and landed the house band job at the Cimarron, a country show case originally built by Doc Sevrenson of Tonight Show fame.  When the curtain rose, they would start playing with enthusiasm knowing they would entertain as many 1500 people a night with their cover show, humor and original music. Wanda Jackson (Rock and Roll Hall of Fame) was one of many musical icons that enjoyed coming to listen and Wanda even spent some of her birthdays there watching the guys; just like the half million others who came from all over the country every week for seven years.

After releasing a successful CD the band hit the road playing venues all over the Southwestern United States. They are still based out of Oklahoma City and still going strong,


The band's music has made it on charts in over fifty countries. Bud said recently "I just got a royalty check from Spain maybe we should recut the album in Spanish?" One Norman Talk show host plays some cuts from the CD and Al Escbach plays the Beer Song from time to time on the Spots Animal. They have been featured on Twang Town USA out of Nashville, Nitewolf Radio in Wisconsin and Music Spotlight in California. The CD received rave reviews from Linda Fryer, BMI and songwriter, Downeast Records and Deborah Minters, Australia.

The band's original songs are solid and there are more in the box waiting to be released. Cuts from the CD go over so well with live crowds that one local bar owner said that Straight Shooter is the most played CD on the juke box.

The Beer Song:

It all got started when the band played a few cuts written by singer/songwriter Bud at a live gig. Three strangers the band had never met offered to pay for the studio time if they would record their original music. One song in particular, “The Beer Song”, is a story about a group of guys who just came to drink beer became a particular favorite and propelled them to numerous awards and chart success.

Band Quotes: It makes me feel good that ……….

“We have done interviews with radio stations playing our stuff all over Europe “.

“The Oklahoma Country Music Association” and The Oklahoma OPRY asked us to serve house band duties and to back up other talented Oklahoma bands. “

” At a recent concert in Noble for around 2000 people the band played 5 songs not even on their play list including one, we had never done before.”

A Crowd Pleasing Band

Straight Shooter is always willing to pose for pictures or sign a copy of their CD or a poster. They work hard to please and people appreciate their enthusiasm. The band continues touring and writing and performing new music and looks to have a new CD in the near future.
