America’s Got Talent sensations The Texas Tenors are back in Hollywood, where they first rose to national fame, and working on their second album, “You Should Dream.” The top vocal group in the history of the show is bringing their unique blend of country and classical music to the prestigious Conway Studios, working with Grammy and Academy Award nominated producer Nigel Wright.

Wright, a fixture among the music industry elite, took interest in the trio after working with them on the show.  Wright serves as Simon Cowell’s musical director for ‘America’s Got Talent,’ ‘X Factor,’ ‘American Idol’ and has a successful partnership with Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber.  He has produced industry heavyweights from Barbara Streisand and Madonna to Jose Carreras with over 40 top 20 hits and four number one singles.

Award-winning artists, like Michael Jackson, Tina Turner, Guns ‘n’ Roses and Lady Gaga have recorded in the legendary Conway Studios.

“We are very excited to be recording our second album in the same place as these incredible artists,” said Marcus Collins, commonly know as ‘the blonde tenor.’ “Wright is such a visionary and really understands our sound and what we want to do with our music.”

“You Should Dream” will feature the Prague Philharmonic Orchestra and include original songs by Grammy award winning songwriters.  Originals include “You Should Dream,” an inspirational ballad about the group’s journey over the last two years.  The album will also feature all new versions of “God Bless The USA,” “Unchained Melody” and “My Way” as seen on America’s Got Talent.

The Texas Tenors won the hearts of millions with their melodic three-part harmonies and Texas charm in 2009.  Since then, they have brought their modern interpretation of country and classical music all over the world in over 270 concerts, including a 23-city tour of the UK.

Fans will have more opportunities to see The Texas Tenors live as they embark on a 93-concert tour across the United States, featuring their live band and some performances with a 65-piece orchestra.  They will also be adding international dates including China and Australia for the fall of 2012.  The full touring schedule is available at

The album is due this fall, with the first single “God Bless the USA” out on September 1 to commemorate the 10th anniversary of 9/11.  Partial proceeds from the single will benefit the nonprofit Homes for our Troops organization that builds homes for wounded veterans at no cost to them.

“We are proud to be able to donate to such a remarkable organization like Homes for our Troops,” said JC Fisher. “This has been such an amazing two years for us and we’re blessed to be able to give back.”
