ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Brazos River runs the length of Texas making it’s own kind of music as it flows. It seems a fitting name for a cowboy quartet doing the same.

Brazos West is Tim McKenzie, Tom Spoonts, David Hooten and Gary Moyers. The members of Brazos West came together in 2011, but individually, they’ve been making music for decades. All four are former members of LCU’s Hard Travelers and have gone on to make music in their own way. The four have joined together, each bringing their own unique style, to create something uniquely cowboy and uniquely them.

David Hooten (Guitar, Vocals) is a man of faith; loves his God, family, country and singing. He has been married to his beautiful wife Beth for 38 years. They have three adult children and four grandchildren. A graduate of Arizona State University with a Master’s degree in counseling, David is a Licensed Professional Counselor and Marriage and Family Therapist. A man of faith, David serves as a teacher and coordinator of marriage ministry at Sunset Church of Christ. He served his country for 25 years and retired from the United States Navy Reserve.His passions include God, family and singing. When golfing, he says that he normally shoots in the mid 70’s and if it gets hotter than that, he has to stay home.

Tom Spoonts (Guitar, Mandolin, Harmonica, Vocals) has been involved in music since an early age, singing hymns at the piano with his grandmother, being taught to play the piano by his aunts, learning to read music from his parents, singing harmony in church, and being inspired by the musical talents of his gifted siblings. He learned folk music during the 60′s, picked up the guitar and performed with an award-winning folk group as a teenager in his native Carlsbad, New Mexico. Tom has been involved in musical theatre through the years and has played key roles in several musicals. He holds a B.A. in music and during his college career toured extensively with LCU’s The Hard Travelers. While living in Austin, Texas, he sang lead for Chronicles, a contemporary gospel quartet. In addition to performing with Brazos West, he is an active member of The Lubbock Chorale. Tom and his wife, Judy, have raised three children in Lubbock.

Tim McKenzie (Upright Bass, Guitar, Fiddle, Vocals) cut his musical teeth in the “Chuckwagon Supper” business in Estes Park Colorado with Ruidoso’s “Flying J” owner Jimmy Hobbs in college and again in the early 80’s. He started a group called Blue Prairie after moving back to Lubbock in 1983 in which he played Upright Bass for 16 years. He has performed at the annual National Cowboy Symposium in Lubbock for as many years with that group and on stage at the Cactus Theater and as a single act. Tim has recorded numerous CD’s in the Western and Cowboy vein with many original works and is a published children’s author with the “Baxter Barret Brown” book series. Tim is originally from the Denver Colorado area with roots in New Mexico and Texas. He is also the founder and producer of the “Prairieland Opry.” “It’s all about the music and the people who make it.”

Gary Moyers (Mandolin, Fiddle, Guitar, Dobro, Vocals) grew up in Lubbock, TX as the only child of a hard working house painter and a loving housewife. They started putting musical instruments into his hands at the age of 3. At age 11, Gary began playing cello in the school orchestra. This led to a series of new educational opportunities. By the time he graduated Monterey High School, Gary was comfortable on cello, guitar, mandolin, fiddle and banjo. Since then, he has gone on to play with the Flying J Wranglers in Ruidoso, NM, the Warehouse Band in Paris, TN and the Christ Family Fellowship Worship Band in Corpus Christi, TX. He also spent 15 years singing with the contemporary Christian group Acappella, touring the world and performing over 1,400 concerts.
