Palomino Road Biography

The 90s US country group Palomino Road comprised four musicians who have lived in Nashville for some years. The main songwriter, Ronnie Guilbeau (vocals), is the son of Gib Guilbeau of the Burrito Brothers, and he worked with his father’s band until moving to Nashville in the mid-80s. His best-known song, co-written with Jim Messina, is ‘Call It Love’ recorded by Poco. J.T. Corenflos (guitar) went to Nashville in 1982, and worked on the Grand Ole Opry and as a member of Joe Stampley’s band. Randy Frazier (bass) played for Sammy Kershaw, while James Lewis (drums), originally from Kansas City, has been playing in Nashville since 1970. Palomino Road was formed in 1992 and unlike many bands, they are a self-contained unit with no outside musicians or session singers involved. They made the US country charts with a spirited revival of George Jones’ ‘Why Baby Why’.
