The story goes that little Shotgun Red was found in a Minnesota hobby shop by Steve Hall in 1980. (If you ask Shotgun, he might tell the tale vice versa!) Whichever you believe, Red became the M.C. for Steve's band. From there, the group's path to stardom began. After winning a "Battle of the Bands" contest in 1982, the band traveled to Nashville for the final competition. While in Music City, Steve and Red "crashed" country broadcast legend Ralph Emery's morning show. Ralph instantly took a liking to the quick witted Shotgun Red and asked him (with his right hand man Steve, of course) to come back to Nashville and be a guest with him on TNN's new flagship series, Nashville Now. The rest is history.
Shotgun Red was a regular member of the Nashville Now cast for over ten years. He also appeared for ten years on one of country music's most successful syndicated and cable network TV programs, Hee Haw, and even hosted TNN's first music video show, Country Clips, for six years. In all this time, Steve Hall has remained with the Shotgun Red Band and performed as their leading man on the General Jackson Showboat in Nashville for over twelve years and more than 3500 shows.
