Choctaw, Oklahoma Casino - January 31, 2010

I have some news I want to share everybody. I took Big Slick to the civic center in Tulsa Ok last weekend and entered into a Wide Open Mag. Motorcycle show . We won 2nd place in our chopper class out of over a 100 bikes . On the way back I stopped at the Choctaw Casino and talked the promotion manager of table games. He came outside to the trailer to take a look at " Big Slick " . He'll feel in love with it . I also gave him a copy of my new CD " Big Slick " for his review.

Well , he called me today and invited Becky & I to the Feb 9th VIP private party of the Grand Opening of the new Choctaw Casino and resort. He wanted to introduce us to all of the poker celebrities they'll have there and all of the officials of the Casino .
They want to use Big Slick in a lot of their promotions for up and coming poker events . They bought a lot of my Big Slick CDs to give away during the 5 day Grand Opening . We're honored to be part of it and really excited about the opportunity .

We'll be posting photos of the event on my website soon.

14 Aug 09 Album Review: David Cline presents Big Slick

If you’ve ever wondered what Texas music to play on poker night, well, Hold’em there cowboy. The Texas Music Journal has just run across David Cline, a Texas Hold’em music maniac.

Cline has put together a wild card set of Hold’em songs on a Texas-sized chip, songs that any player with a few holes in his pocket can relate to. Down to earth, homegrown lyrics are highlighted by solid country licks and chops on guitar, bass, harp, fiddle, steel guitar, drums, keyboard, dobro, clarinet and banjo along with gospel choir backup vocals, twangs and other “thangs”. It’s almost guaranteed you’ll pick up a beer or two and catch yourself tapping along before you’re done.

I never thought there were so many things to sing about in Texas Hold’em. His songs are full of Harleys, honeys, beer, poker, chips, antics, wins and losses. Cline spins yarns of no rent, torment and lament, but he is not about to stop the flop. He’ll take you a few turns down the river and then deal out another flop before you can even say, “I’m all in”.

Now, this collection is not for the faint-of-heart fly-by-night gambler nor is it for the dead-eye poker-faced gambler. It’s for those players out for some serious fun, because you can’t take yourself too seriously in Hold’em. If there’s one message that Cline can testify to it’s that the luck is in the cards. So, gather up your buds, grab a beer, shuffle and let Cline deal out the fun.

And, yes, I’m a Hold’em player… ‘nuff said.

Cline has done more than just produce this one album. He’s put together a total of seven country music albums and one gospel album. He also has numerous other songwriting and entertainment awards to add to his credits. David’s music is now being played on XM Radio, Internet Radio as well as AM & FM radio stations all over the United States and Europe. In January of 2004, a song he wrote, entitled “Good Ole Country Music & Western Swing”, hit number one on the European Country Music Charts. He topped the Worldwide Mainstream Indie and Major Charts as most independent played artist in November of 2002. Over the years, there have been numerous articles written about David, and his music in local papers and national trade magazines. Magazines like Truckers News, Road Star, Road King and The Trail Rider. Most recently there has been a full two-page featured article written about David in the May/June issue of the National RV Companion Magazine.

More information about David Cline can be found at his website: Copies of the album as well as digital downloads can be purchased at CD Baby.

Cline's Corner Offers Country Entertainment During First Mondays

2 Ratings / 1 Comment
First Mondays in Canton has been a Texas tradition since the 1850s, and now, so is Cline’s Corner.

Cline’s Corner is owned by David and Becky Cline, located at Old Mill Market Place on The Mountain, and provides country music entertainment on First Mondays.

Cline is a veteran country singer/songwriter, who has traveled the world, including Europe, performing his original music. Cline is currently working on his 7th country CD and also has recorded one gospel CD.

Cline is regularly joined by country/gospel singer Tammy Miller. Miller has performed at oprys, special events, fairs and festivals throughout Texas, as well as Nashville, NYC & Oklahoma. In 2001, she was nominated as Female Vocalist of the year by Coast to Coast Country Music Magazine.

Cline’s Corner opened a year ago and both Cline and Miller perform there every month. Brett Miller, Tammy’s husband, runs the sound board and they host a variety of singers for their shows. "We are always looking for new talent," said Tammy Miller.

Cline and Miller were joined at Cline’s Corner on Saturday, November 1, 2008, by Candice Lloyd and Mallory Rardin.

Lloyd is a senior at Rockwall-Heath High School. She began singing on stage at age 13 at Rodeo City Music Hall in Mesquite, Texas, where she received the 2007 Female Horizon Award. In addition to singing, Lloyd writes song lyrics and hopes to record one of her original tunes next year, as well as release a new CD.

Rardin attends Smithfield Junior High in North Richland Hills and is 12 years old. She sang the National Anthem at Texas Motor Speedway in 2004, and again in 2006 at the request of the Mayor of North Richland Hills for their Policeman’s Ball. Rardin’s future bookings include Cline's Corner and RCMH, on November 15, 2008.

"I am honored to have such talented artists grace our stage," said Cline. "I have received lots of compliments, from the surrounding vendors on The Mountain, on the talent we had Saturday."

Join David Cline and Tammy Miller during First Mondays in Canton at Cline’s Corner with feature shows on Friday and Saturday nights, as well as performances during the shopping hours the entire weekend.

For more information on David Cline’s performance locales and times, go to or just come visit him on The Mountain in Canton.

Joy Adams wrote :

I just want to say you did a brilliant job. I was very proud of you up in Paihia especially.
That last show that Ray and I saw was top notch. You had a great repor with the audience and picked a great selection of songs.
People really enjoyed your performance and you should feel very proud of yourself.

Dear David,

I was the sound technician at the Paihia Pacific Resort during the Country Festival.
My family and I hope you had a pleasant time in New Zealand, and a comfortable return back home.
We thank you a lot for the CD you gave us ("My Daddy's Music"). We listened to it already a couple of times, and we like it very much.
We wish you all the best, and maybe we will see you again in the beautiful Bay of Islands.

Kind regards

Alexander Gramse

Rotorua New Zealand DJ , Ray Tombs wrote :

In March this year my lady Cindy suggested we go take a look at the three day Country Rock Festival to be held in May at Paihia, Bay of Islands, NEW ZEALAND.
We both own FM radio stations in separate cities and thought it would be good to get out and meet the national and international stars that would be performing there.
After looking at the program, I decided to cold email David Cline in Texas and offer to promote his music on my station in his lead up to doing a one night show in my city of Rotorua, prior to the Paihia event.
It was a huge buzz to get an immediate positive reply from him and within two weeks I had received 66 of his songs by mail and had them wall-to-wall on air.
I had good feed back from listeners and I was delighted to hear for the first time the rich voice of an artist I'd never heard of until then.
David has a lovely tone and his deep Texan voice comes across well to present his songs.
We all have favourites, mine are 'Daddy, they're playing a song about you', 'An ace in the hole' and 'If I could dream', poetic licence allows me to give them plenty of airtime in conjunction with a good mix of his other songs.
David kindly send me some personalised voice ID's to play, introducing himself and giving my station good plugs, the personal flavour makes David's music just that.
I had the pleasure of meeting David for the first time when he came to perform in Rotorua with one of our New Zealand songstress Joy Adams, they did a show tour around the North Island before finishing at Paihia.
I would personally like to thank David for his professional courtesy, wonderful friendship and beautiful music, and I know that my listeners and myself are richer for having the pleasure of hearing him play on Radio Cindy 107.7FM.
Keep on making music David and please keep me and Cindy in the loop.
KiaOra from your Kiwi buddies.

Hi David
Just thought I would drop you a line to say how I appreciated meeting you on your trip to New Zealand.. I hope you enjoyed the Pahia Country Rock Festival and all the venues you performed in on the lead up. It was great making initial contact in Rotorua at the RSA Club and then seeing the real David Cline in front of an appreciative audience in Pahia.. The crowd seemed to enjoy your classics and the new songs that you sang struck a chord with the listeners. You have a great voice and that lovely smile goes a long way to winning fans. I have been playing some of your orginal songs on Jukebox Fm 107.5 Taupo since meeting you as it is now easier to 'flesh' out the lyrics when talking about you on air.

She also sent this e-mail on 6/7/08

Hi David
Just having a blast on my station and thought I would email you to say the
your song about your wife's Hummer has just bought a reaction! There has
been a lot of publicity about vehicles that are petrol guzzelers here and
the Hummer won the category hands down so I thought appropriate to play
your song so my Saturday night show has turned into a David Cline SHOW.
Funny how that happens. Your great voice and style of singing is really
great. Ray and I have stressed out over the last two days moving my
station to a higher aerial position and different location in Taupo and
now it all on to pull new listeners.
Hope you have settled down to being back to the grindstone in Texas.
Thankyou for your music. It is different to our Kiwi style and much
appreciated by those who love Country'

GRAND OPENING Aug 31st Sept 1st & 2nd

GRAND OPENING of “ Cline’s Corner “ Country Music Promotional Store with Showcase stage Located at Old Mill Market Place up on The Mountain Canton Tx . First Monday Trades Day Aug 31st Sept 1st & 2nd The little building we bought is on the grounds of the Old Mill Market Place up on what they call The Mountain ( formally called Willies Mountain years ago ). The building was a small Hot Dog stand , nothing fancy , only 12 foot X 15 foot. I felt it would be a great location for a little entertainment spot for all of the First Monday Shoppers to take a load off and relax in the shade while listening to some Classic Country & 50’s Rock - N - Roll music.

The easiest way to get there is to come to Canton Tx. On I-20 and take exit 528 and turn south ( TR ) onto Hwy 17, go down to Hwy 64 , turn right and start looking on your right ( approx 3 blocks ) for The Old Mill Market Place . Turn into that parking lot ( tell the gate attendant you’re one off the entertainers for the” Cline’s Corner “ showcase stage). Come thru the gate and look to your right and you'll see a big platform stage at the base of a big hill. That is what they call The Saturday night Mountain Showcase Stage . If you'll walk up that little road going up the hill we're the first building on the left over looking all of that area. On the side of our building there is a deck . That is what we've made into a small stage. The owners of all of that land that we lease from are going to work with me to make an area for people to sit in the shade and listen to some music at different times during the day along with all the other activities there (western reenactments gun fight shows , Gospel Music shows and auctions of merchandise ). We'll have pick - a - nic tables and or comfortable chairs to sit on. Then at night we'll have indie artists showcasing their music on Friday and Saturday nights during a little 2 hour show. The shows would start about 8 PM when it has cooled off and is getting dark . The show will be a free open air show , so for right now all artists will be volunteering their time to promote themselves to a lot of folks. I will be making time slots for the artist that can run their own show. It won’t be an open mic for anybody that walks up . I will have amps for people to plug into and players for those who have their original tracks to perform by.

The Mountain shops all stay open until 11 PM with all kinds of lights all over the hill. There's a lot of Bed & Bath little hotels all over the mountain as well as RV Parking with full hook-ups for the shoppers to spend the night after a long day of shopping . We hope to draw some of the residence of Canton to the show as well. Don't know what the ordinances of the city of Canton are about having a small dance area in front of our little stage but you can always dance in the street . A lot of folks still like to dance ever once in a while.

Our building will have heat and air for the entertainers to sit around in during the day and visit with the shoppers . We’ll have a sign out side saying , “ You never know what artist you might meet in here “. Come On In.

It will be a fun place to hang out once a month and do some people watching , co-writing and maybe sell a few CDs . Some of the artists might even pickup a gig or two for private parties.

We're having our Grand Opening Aug 31st , Sept 1st & 2nd. The main show will be Saturday night with Tammy Miller , Kimberly Mae , me & the fabulous Bryan Cline . Come on out and check it out . I have a feeling it will be the Biggest Little Track Show in Texas . We will be featuring live bands also from time to time.

Thanks for your time , David & Becky Cline Cell ( 972 ) 489 - 3404
