18 April 1940, Cross Plains, Texas, USA. Raised in Abilene, Potter built a career in radio and television from the age of 16, appearing on the Slim Willet Show and Bill Fox Show, the latter on KRBC-TV in the mid-50s. For a dozen years that enclosed the 60s, he led the band that supported the popular singer Hank Thompson. In 1980, Potter duetted on ‘San Antonio Medley’ with Darrell McCall, which was a minor hit. His own recordings during this period included the 1988 recording All I Need Is Time. In the new millennium, he began recording for the Heart Of Texas label. Among musicians with whom Potter has played on record are Dave Kirby and Buddy Emmons, and in 1994 he completed a duet album with Willie Nelson. Heart surgery in early 2006 brought a temporary break in Potter’s career but he was soon back at work.
