Discography

*1997: "Buzzed"
*1999: "Wishful Drinking"
*2003: "Ass Grabbin’ Country"
*2006: "Loud Mouth Drunks"" Loud Mouth Drunks" is the latest release of LA's "favorite country-rock band"(LA Times)"Ass Grabbin’ Country" is the third release, and is the most personal of all three CDs. For once the songs are not all about Tex Troester, instead deciding to try something new, having songs about each of the other band members also. "My Girlfriends Got A Boyfriend" is about Gary, "Who Wears The Pants?" is about Ron and his wife, and "My Wife Got Hit By A Truck" is about Bob and his wife. And of course as usual the rest of the songs are telling the life of Tex.Fact|date=June 2007
