    The Hideout at the Rodeo 2012: Ryan Beaver

    Kick up your heels at The Hideout, located on the east side of Reliant Astrodome. Look for the big white tent packed with dancers and up-and-coming and local-favorite country artists. The Hideout is open for those 21 and older. It’s your chance to hear some of the best-in-Texas music for just the price of admission to Reliant Park!

    Monday, March 5:  Ryan Beaver.

    When Ryan Beaver went onstage for his very first public performance of his own songs, he tripped on the last step and nearly took a serious stage dive – guitar and all. So he turned to the audience and said, “They told me to break a leg and I’m trying.” That’s the kind of chutzpah that any young musician needs if they’re gonna succeed in this scarily tough business. The kind that, combined with a little naivete, drives a greenie to send his music to someone like Lloyd Maines – no introductions, no connections, just a cold-call request for an opinion. Fortunately for Beaver, Maines actually listened – and recognized the talent in what he heard.

    Born and raised in Emory, Texas, he earned a degree in business from Texas State University in San Marcos in 2006, then went home for a year and worked in a bank while trying to decide whether he should pursue his musical dream.

    Born on St. Patrick’s Day, Beaver does seem to have a four-leaf clover or two with his name on it. That first onstage experience, at the Piney Woods Pickin’ Parlor in Mineola, Texas, occurred at the invitation of his guitar teacher – who had given Beaver, then 18, just a couple of lessons before asking him to open a show. “I’ve always played music,” says Beaver. “It’s really been the thing that I’ve done and done well. … I told myself that it was gonna be a hard road. Sometimes, you fight those things that are tellin’ you you should do it. I finally quit fighting it."

    Keep an ear out for him; with his luck, pluck and talent – and friends – don’t be surprised if he hits the big time even sooner.
