Though Cincinnati is hardly a hotbed of country music, Frazier River demonstrated that the town could support a residency; from 1991, frontman Danny Frazier and his set up ensemble of well-known region musicians frequently drew 3,000 people weekly because of their daily performances on the River Saloon, a big hall situated on a riverboat. Frazier grew up in Kerrville, TX, the kid of the Pentecostal preacher. He paid attention to gospel in addition to honky tonk star Merle Haggard while we were young, and transferred to Ohio when his dad was called to a new church. After doing work for a Cincinnati record shop, Danny Frazier started playing around the town and recruited many friends to create Frazier River. Following the music group spent 3 years packaging people in to the River Saloon, Nashville begun to get sucked in; Frazier River agreed upon to Decca and released a self-titled record in 1995.
