More about Radney Foster
Though Radney has been telling stories in song for more than three decades, his latest endeavor digs a bit deeper. The Sycamore Creek project includes a CD as well as a book of short fiction. While they stand alone, the full story is told through both the book and album.
Radney has also recently released The Foster EP with singer-songwriter Kyle Hutton, which benefits foster care aid and awareness in Texas. The two teamed up for the five-song project, which came out March 31st, to bring awareness to the lack of available, safe homes and many children in need throughout the state. All proceeds from the EP go back to foster care awareness and aid in Texas.
You can read more about Radney and his current projects via “Texas Monthly,” “Billboard,” and “American Songwriter.”
