The Tennessee River Boys' efforts have not gone unnoticed by the Nashville music Industry. Their original repertoire Includes songs by some of the most respected writers in Music City Tim Doubols (Love In the First Degree), Rory Burke-Charlle Black (Almost Like a Song), and Keith Stegal (Sexy Eyes). The boys have recorded most of these songs and future sessions are now being planned. The boys have also become comfortable In front of the TV camera recently. They were the only new Opryland group selected to appear on a recent segment of NBC's Fantasy show with Leslie Uggams and Peter Marshall. They have also appeared on Tom T. Hall's Pop Goes the Country, Nashville Alive, Irlene Mandrell-Jlm Stafford Special, Nashville Now, I-tO Paradise and Opryland on Stage. They are also scheduled for an up-coming segment of HeeHaw. The group consists of Matt Davenport of Deep Run, N.C. on bass and vocals; Danny Gregg of Altus, Ok. on rhythm guitar, keyboards and vocals, and Ty Herndon of Decatur, Ala. on vocals. Other band members are Larry Bearid on lead guitar, fiddle and banjo; Mel Deal on steel and lead guitar; Al Deleonibus on piano and sax, and Ed Mummert on drums. Matt, Danny, and Ty put the group together three years ago for a onetime appearance on a local TV show In Nashville as representatives of Opryland. The chemistry was there and something clicked and they were asked back for a return appearance on the show. The boys then made the decision to put a band together and keep the group going and the Tennessee River Boys were born. The band members currently all reside in Nashville and are beginning to tour nationwide. They have appeared with T.G. Shepphard, The Oak Ridge Boys, Charlie Daniels and others.
