Texas Lightning, the country band who represented Germany in the Eurovision Song Contest 2006 in Athens, decided to take a creative break, starting at the end of this year. The band is neither putting a clear time limit on the break, nor planning on performing any live gigs during this time.
After their Eurovision Song Contest- song No no never and their album release Meanwhile, back at the (golden) ranch, Texas Lightning weren’t able to find any further common musical ground as a band and therefore decided, earlier this year, not to release any more albums but to focus on what they have always mainly been and still are- a live band. However, due to the fact that they didn’t manage to evolve any further, the band members find it senseless to keep the band in the current state and have decided to let go and continue alone for a while to gain new experiences and re-charge their batteries.
Before the beginning of their break, Texas Lightning will still be taking their trip to China and holding their traditional Christmas Concert, which will both be their very last one before their big break and also a farewell concert for the time being. Texas Lightning also wish to thank all their true fans and supporters for the last couple of years.
Texas Lightning represented Germany in the Eurovision Song Contest 2006 in Athens with No no never, written by lead singer Jane Comerford. The song placed 14th with 36 points and had huge chart success in Germany and Austria. Their album Meanwhile, back at the ranch contained classics like Highway to Hell, Like a Virgin, Kiss or Dancing Queen in country style, as well as the popular Rosenstolz- song Ich bin ich in English language.
