Phil Hamilton’s RENEGADE ROCK N’ROLL album has already yielded two hit singles, and critics are digging the laid back mix of rock guitars and traditional country fiddles.  Hamilton has been surprised by fans showing up that already know the words to the new songs and sing along at his concerts.  The approval has garnered Phil a first time nomination for “Texas Music Act,” in the upcoming Fort Worth Weekly Music Awards.  Everyone can help rock the vote for Philthy till June 25, 2012 online at www.FWWeekly.com
 
“I’m so excited that people are taking notice of my music,” said the Burleson native. “The band and I have worked so hard the past year to make our live show entertaining and original for our fans.”  He has seen his fan base grow with near sell-out shows in the Texas market and beyond.  Hamilton’s sophomore release of the RENEGADE ROCK N’ROLL album has resulted in download sales from as far away as Europe.
 
Critics are taking notice of the raw and cool vibe of RENEGADE ROCK N’ROLL
 
 -This has a lazy, loping quality that is quite appealing. He has a dusty, dry delivery, and the band keeps it slow, steady and simple. It will probably sound “underproduced” to some, but I think that’s part of its charm. Robert K. Oermann, Music Row Magazine
 
 
-This Texas-based artists recently scored a #1 hit on the Regional Radio Report and other Texas music charts. There's a fresh, raw, and real vibe to the songs on this album. The musical performances on the record rank up there from B3 and twangy guitar on "Bad" to fiddle and percussive fills on tracks like album opener "Willie's Bus," "Back of a '73," "Back To Mobile" and "Working Man's Son." It's a strong heartland country/rock record that gets better with each successive listen and leaves you wanting for more. RoughStock.com
 
Hamilton attended CMA MusicFest for the first time and gained new fans.  He performed at the world famous Tootsie’s Orchard Lounge and at the Ernest Tubb's Record Store.  He did allow time for some fun while in Music City.  Phil got to hang with movie star Hayden Penettiere in the Country Music Association’s suite.  Hamilton also fulfilled one of his bucket list items when he met the Duck Commander staff from the hit reality show Duck Dynasty.   "I've been a duck hunter most of my life and used the Duck Commander products before the TV show aired," he said.  "I loved meeting the guys, it was awesome."
 
The second single, “Bad,” from the new album became Phil’s first number one on the TRRR Chart in May.  “You Can Have Me,” the first single went to number 8 on the Texas Charts.  Radio and fans have responded with overwhelming approval for the album’s fusion of rock into country music since its release.  Phil’s fan base continues to grow beyond the Lone Star state.  He is maintaining a heavy touring schedule and enjoys attracting new fans to his music.  He was recently voted as a finalist for “New Male Vocalist,” at the Texas Regional Music Awards.  He's opened for major Texas/Red Dirt Artists like the Casey Donahew Band, The Randy Rogers Band and the Josh Abbott Band.
