"Opie Hendrix is the real deal…" -SARA CRESS (Houston Chronicle)
"An intelligent songwriter, & master showman…Opie's raw, unbridled passion is rare in today's music… "Dude plays a mean guitar, banjo & mandolin and his backing band the Texas Tallboys can ROCK any joint…" (HOUSTON PRESS)
"Part Waylon Jennings, part Webb Wilder and part Hank III…connoisseur of all things low-life with a gift for delivering raggedly right songs for and about fellow wastrels, slackers and ne'er-do-wells…this Houston boy has his game face on." -WILLIAM MICHAEL SMITH (Texas Music Magazine)
