The Outlaws began in the blue collar port city of Tampa, Florida in the early 1970’s. The band was made up of Hughie Thomasson, Henry Paul, Monte Yoho, and Frank O’Keefe. At Hughie’s urging, Billy Jones moved back to Tampa from Colorado in 1972 to complete the original lineup.

They quickly became a favorite of the Tampa college crowd and soon took the show on the road. Earning a reputation as a great live band, they lit up clubs from Macon to Nashville and honky-tonks throughout the southeast.

The Outlaws developed their own high-powered, guitar-driven country-rock, complete with great self-penned music and stellar three-part harmony and soon established themselves as premiere players in the phenomenon that came to be known as Southern Rock.

After decades of triumph, the Outlaws have endured repeated tragedy in the loss of original members Frank O’Keefe, Billy Jones, and most recently signature singer/songwriter/guitarist Hughie Thomasson.

Today, 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.

Through sheer determination and commitment to the legacy of this great band, the most recent line-up of Outlaws sets its sights on its musical future, while remaining true to the unique character of Outlaws past.

Their many hits over the years include “Ghost Riders in the Sky,” “There Goes Another Love Song,” “Green Grass & High Tides,” “Hurry Sundown” and “Knoxville Girl.”
