Ronnie Huckaby was born and raised in Waco, TX. He began playing music at the age of 6 and formed his first band when he was 11. After high school, he moved to Austin in the early 1970s to experience the exploding outlaw country movement firsthand. He played in local bands around the area until an audition with George Strait in 1983 led him to his current position as band leader and piano player for the country music superstar. One of the highlights of Ronnie’s career was playing the presidential retreat at Camp David for then President George H.W. Bush and First Lady Barbara Bush with George Strait and fellow Ace in the Hole member Rick McRae. In addition to his almost countless concert appearances and best-selling recordings, Ronnie has also appeared in the movies Pure Country and Stop-Loss.
