Born and raised in Vivian, Louisiana, Phil Robertson came from a large family with 7 children and little money. Because of the location of his family home in a rural setting near Shreveport, and the aforementioned scarcity of money, hunting became an important part of his formative years.
Never satisfied with the duck calls on the market, Phil began to experiment with making a call that would produce the exact sound of a duck. In 1972, Phil Robertson gave up a coaching career for his love of duck hunting when he whittled a better duck call than any on the market, the first Duck Commander call. His first year, Robertson sold $8,000 worth of duck calls and his wife, Kay, somehow managed to feed four boys on that salary. The same year, he received a patent for this call and in 1973, formed the Duck Commander Company.
Andrew grew up in a strong Christian home, one of four sons of world evangelist and author Luis Palau. Andrew, however, chose his own way and did not make an early commitment to Jesus Christ. He attended the University of Oregon where the party life was a large part of his studies.
Andrew took vacation time to join his parents for Luis’ evangelistic outreach in Kingston, Jamaica. His father preached the same Gospel message he had heard him share hundreds of times, but this time was different. Having witnessed God’s presence in the lives of some Jamaicans he met, Andrew gave his heart to the Lord after 27 years of living apart from Him. He has since shared the Gospel with millions of people, and at every opportunity he demonstrates his father’s same passion and love for Christ and for evangelism.
To hear Curtis Grimes sing is to take a trip through the heart of country music. A Texas native, Grimes was raised on a steady diet of George Strait and Alan Jackson, and he possesses the everyman charm of both his heroes; along with a refreshingly mature voice that truly stands out.
In 2018, Grimes was named “Male Vocalist of the Year” at The Texas Country Music Association Awards Show and also received the honors of winning “Country-Christian Artist of the Year” and Country-Christian Song of the Year”.
