Making a Scene Presents an Interview with Randy C Moore
RANDY C MOORE is an Americana Music Artist. A native of Humble, Texas, at 15 years of age he was making his own records; and with the help of Houston radio personality Arch Yancey (KNUZ), his first single releases were receiving significant Texas radio airplay. In addition, he was also a regular feature of the world-famous Gilley’s. By the time he graduated high school, Randy was a guest star on WSM’s Grand Ole Opry hosted by Roy Acuff.
He attended Belmont University in Nashville for modern recording and pro song writing. All the while, he was opening shows on the road with Hank Williams Jr., David Allen Coe, Amy Grant, Vince Gill, and Lee Ann Rimes. His song writing career teamed him up with Nashville greats, Restless Heart, Pat Bunch, David Lee, and rockabilly legend, Carl Perkins.
“ …becoming friends with Carl was about the easiest thing I’d ever done. I’m pretty sure he knew I was nervous, but it all went away with a little, ‘well, how ya’ doin’ son?’…I really miss Carl.”
In October 2001, Randy was a feature artist on The Alliance of Neighbors (Red Bank, NJ) 9/11 Benefit Concert with Bruce Springsteen, Bon Jovi, Phoebe Snow, Joe Ely, and Smithereens. Randy performed with a backing band composed of Elvis Presley’s rhythm section.
“I sang some Carl Perkins songs with Elvis’ old band mates. It was time to let folks know that God cared for them in their darkest time of need…I hoped it was enough.”
And speaking of Randy C Moore and his Carl Perkins connection. Randy is currently riding the on success of country superstar Ronnie Milsap’s recording of “Big Bertha”, a single from Milsap’s 2021 LP co-written by Randy, Carl, and Perkins’ daughter Debbie Swift Perkins.
Alongside Randy’s live touring schedule, he is also host of the worldwide radio show “Neon Music Country Legacy” and is currently co-producing new music with hit-maker, Norbert Putnam, in Muscle Shoals, AL.
