Texas were founded by Johnny McElhone (formerly of the bands Altered Images and Hipsway) in 1986 and feature Sharleen Spiteri on lead vocals. Texas took their name from the 1984 Wim Wenders movie Paris, Texas.
Texas released their debut album Southside in 1989, along with the debut single “I Don’t Want a Lover” which was an international hit, reaching the top ten in the UK and other high charting positions in Europe. Despite the success of Southside, the follow-up albums Mothers Heaven (1991) and Ricks Road (1993) were less successful.
The band’s fortunes changed in 1997 with the release of their White on Blonde album which entered the UK Albums Chart at number one and became their biggest seller. Follow up album, The Hush (1999) was also successful, debuting at number one on the UK album charts and certified triple platinum. The band’s Greatest Hits album, released in 2000, was another big seller, again debuting at number one and also being certified six-times platinum. Texas released two other studio albums, Careful What You Wish For in 2003, and Red Book in 2005.
