Chip Murrey bought his first Les Paul when he was 15
years old playing rock and roll, southern rock, and classic rock for
years. In 2006 Chip met up with steel and lead guitar player Paul
Sisson. They founded the Texas Underground Band, a progressive Texas
Country band with a raunchy side. TUG, as they are often called,
released their first award nominated CD PAYDIRT in 2009, and a second EP
BACK PORCH MUSIC in 2011. They have continually perfected their show,
sound, and play list as well as adding outstanding musicians Billy
Whitton on drums and Big Mike Ray on bass guitar.
Chip Murrey & Texas Underground has become one of north Texas' favorite bands entertaining crowds at your favorite honky tonks, festivals, and biker benefits! They keep the crowd stimulated with a diverse list of covers ranging all the way from George Jones to the Stone Temple Pilots! In the end the big crowd pleaser is always a heavy dose of rocking Texas Country originals that has you leaving satisfied with TUG songs you just can't get out of your head.
