Personalities | The Mavericks | New Country & The Neo-Traditionalists

(Vocal/instrumental group, 1992–98)

The Mavericks released their debut album independently, and their major-label debut, From Hell To Paradise (1992), gave little hint of the success ahead, as CMA Vocal Group Of The Year in both 1995 and 1996. All have moved on to further ventures, but will be forever linked with the audience-pleasing band whose albums include What A Crying Shame (1994), Music For All Seasons (1995) and Trampoline (1998), which featured ‘Dance The Night Away’, their signature song.
