Today, the Outlaws are at the threshold of a new era. Along with original singer/songwriter/guitarist Henry Paul and original drummer/songwriter Monte Yoho, the Outlaws feature Chris Anderson, Billy Crain, Randy Threet, and Jon Coleman.
Chris Anderson, lead guitarist and longtime Outlaws bandmate, brings his considerable talent as a player, singer, and songwriter to the band. His solo records for Sony in the early 90s and his collaboration with Dickey Betts, Dan Toler, Warren Haynes and The Outlaws over the years have helped establish him as one of Southern Rock’s most notable players.
Billy Crain has become a household name in the southern rock family of exceptional lead guitar players. He has enjoyed significant success as a songwriter with his songs cut by such artists as the Dixie Chicks, Poco and Martina McBride. With the Henry Paul Band in the late 1970s, he developed a large following with his legendary musicianship, and with Chris Anderson, forms one of the all-time great lead guitar teams in rock and roll.
Bassist/Singer/Songwriter Randy Threet became a member of the Outlaws in 2005 through his previous work with Henry in the Country group Blackhawk. He has also played with such artists as Pam Tillis, Larry Boone, Trisha Yearwood, Buddy Jewel, and toured overseas in support of our troops. In 2004 he worked on the USA Network show "Nashville Star". Randy's high energy, great harmonies and solid bass work make him a popular part of "The Outlaws".
The most recent addition to the band is keyboard player, singer/songwriter Jon Coleman. Coleman found his way to The Outlaws through stints with Lee Roy Parnell and the super-group collaboration of Brothers of the Southland, which featured Jimmy Hall of Wet Willie, Dan Toler of The Allman Brothers, Steve Gorman of the Black Crowes, and Henry Paul.
Through sheer determination and commitment to the legacy of this great band, the most recent line-up of The Outlaws sets its sights on its musical future, while remaining true to the unique character of The Outlaws past.
