The Hill Brothers

Preston, Wade and Adam Hill were raised in Pleasanton with the love for small town living, as well as traditional country music. They grew up listening to the sounds of Bob Wills, Ray Price, George Strait and many others. All three brothers graduated from Pleasanton and were National Honor Society students, each playing varsity football. They took their love of music with them to Texas A&M University where they played in a number of cover bands. While at A&M, each were members of the Corps of Cadets with Preston being the Corps Chaplain his senior year, Ross being the first captain of the first Platoon Horse Riding Calvary and Adam being the current executive officer of the Calvary in his senior year.

Each of the Hill brothers take after their father, Toby Hill, and play multiple instruments such as the guitar, bass and fiddle. During his junior high years, Adam won the Poteet Strawberry Festival Fiddlers Contest three years in a row. Nowadays, they are primarily key players in the South Texas Construction Industry. Playing music for others to dance to is a hobby they all enjoy.
