Max & Heather Stalling are a singer-songwriter duo based out of Dallas, TX. Max handles rhythm guitar and leads vocals; Heather provides fiddle and harmony vocals.
Their collaboration has been in the making for a long time, and they are excited to bring their show to new audiences.
Heather is an award-winning violinist and fiddle player who picked up her instrument at 3 years old and has never stopped playing it since. Heather has played for various touring acts, including Johnny Lee, Cory Morrow, Bob Schneider, Ed Burleson, Mark David Manders, and The Old 97s. In 2005 she put together her project, blactopGYPSY, released two full-length studio albums, and toured relentlessly until the lead singer (and her best friend) became gravely sick.
Max followed a slightly different path in the music business. He has a master’s degree in horticulture from Texas A&M University and left a day job as a research scientist for snack food giant Frito Lay to pursue a full-time career as a songwriter. He has 6 studio albums and three live projects including a full-length DVD. He is a staple in the Texas/Red Dirt scene as well as having a chart-topping history in the Americana radio format. He has a star on the South Texas Music Walk of Fame and is a former member of the Board of Governors for the Texas Chapter of NARAS. In addition to solo and duo shows, Max travels with a five-piece band and does 150+ shows annually. Of recent, Heather has been playing with Max’s band after her band’s lead singer fell ill.
Max & Heather were married in 2007 and are now finally finding that the timing is right for them to do a project together.
Did you grow up playing any of these games?
Ping Pong, Pool Lyrics
Ping Pong, pool, poker and spades Dominos, dice, darts and Charades Eight Ball, Nine Ball, 42, Moon I ain't playing games with you I ain't playing games with you Tenaha, Timpson, Bobo and Blair Inside, outside, up or down stairs Walla Walla, Washington, Newport News I'd go anywhere you ask me to I'll go anywhere you want me to Chorus: Dance in the moonlight, dance in the shade Dance in the kitchen while the marmalades made Fifty pounds of peaches, sugar in a sack Please be sweet, honey, take me back Oh honey, come on won't you take me back Richey Rich, Batman, Archie and The Hulk Read my funny books, sit around and sulk Rembrandt, Remington, Russell H3 Do I have to paint a picture; I need you here with me Do I gotta paint a picture; I need you here with me Chorus: Dance in the front yard, dance on the side Dance in the kitchen while the chicken gets fried White meat, dark meat, wishbone crack I sure hope you'll take me back Cross my fingers that you'll take me back I sure love you I hope you can find a way to love me too Snap, crackle, pop, walk a mile for a Camel Scrubbing bubble action won't hurt your enamel Name your bologna the man behind the star I ain't selling nothing I like who you are I ain't selling nothing I like who you are
Chorus: Dance on a dirt road, dance where it's paved Dance in the kitchen while the gravy gets made Little bit of flour and grease make rue Keep on stirring till it all gets smooth I really want to smooth things out with you I really want to smooth things out with you
