From the hot-spots of east Texas and southwest Louisiana to the traditional toe-tapping dance-halls of central and west Texas, Gary Helms has played to standing room only audiences and kept them screaming for more.
Few artists have made such and impact on the Texas country music scene. Nonstop touring and professionalism have made him one of the most in demand country artist in Texas.
Gary was launched into the International spotlight in 1993 when a song "Rainy Night In Texas" became a fan favorite in Europe peaking at #2 on the European Charts for four weeks and staying in the top 20 for an amazing 15 weeks.
He also started getting air play at many Texas radio stations as well with "Rainy Night In Texas" and "Daddy Don't Leave" both songs he penned himself along with co-writer Jim Rowland a former Texas Black Gold band member.
Gary currently has songs on the radio in Belgium, Germany, France and the good ole... USA.
Gary and Texas Black Gold received a few accolades in February 1994 when he was featured in the 93Q Country Radio Magazines (Houston Rodeo Edition) as a regional fan favorite.
Gary has also been one of the feature artists at the Houston Musicians Re-union for the last five years, a time when the stars really do come out at night.
Gary grew up in North Shore, a small town 15 miles east of Houston. With country boy charm, good looks and manners, Gary is an icon of respect. Though his passionate love of the stage has already provided him opportunities to perform for fans across the country, his heart remains true to Texas.
His roots and respect for the Lone star people run as deep as the state's seemingly bottomless mine of platinum talent.
