BETTY GASCAMP – Betty listened to polka music as a little girl as her mother played piano in several Houston area Polka Bands. After inheriting her mom’s accordion 25 years ago, it sat in the closet until a friend asked her to play at the McDade Opry. Betty went to John Dujka of the popular Dujka Brothers Band and asked if he would teach her how to play the accordion for the McDade Opry which was in four weeks. He did, and she has enjoyed playing ever since.

MOSES RANGEL – For over 15 years Moses Rangel has been establishing himself as a country artist with a drive for success. In 1996, the single, “Seeing Another Woman” had regional and overseas success. Soon after, a follow up single “Texas Highway” gave Moses his first number one hit. Moses is currently working on his classic country CD, a remake of “Welcome To My World”. In 1999, Moses was nominated for New Male Vocalist, Male Rising Star, and Single of the Year for the 1999 Golden Music Awards.

DOTTIE JACK is no stranger to a country song. Born in Iowa, her musical family was often found entertaining for family and friends at various events and local functions. Her first on-stage performance was at the age of 12 with guitar legend Jimmy Bryant. Dottie’s first album “Texas In A Stetson” was acclaimed and received much chart success. She just recently completed her second album, “I Can’t See Texas From Here”. Dottie was a 2007 & 2008 nominee for female vocalist of the year with the Will Rogers Academy of Western Artists.

RONNIE CAYWOOD was raised in Rockdale and has been singing since his early teens. Ronnie has been showcased on various Songwriter Nights in Nashville including the Bluebird CafĂ© and Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge. His crowd-pleasing tunes range from Country to Rock ‘n Roll with some Gospel music thrown in. Ronnie has several recordings, some of which some of the members of the Ace In The Hole Band recorded with him. He has shared bills with country singers and Grand Ole Opry stars such as Claude Gray, Miss Norma Jean, Justin Trevino, and Dickey Overby, former steele player for Ronnie Millsap.
