Tom Wurth was a pleasure to hear and watch at last week’s Valley Star Awards. He has a resonating voice that adds to the country music he sings.
You will hear him talk about “staying constant,” being real and natural. These things resonate in the songs he writes, those he chooses to record and in every aspect of his career. He has a commitment to real and natural music. It is music you can count on with every song and at every show.

Renk's final event on February 16 will honor his son Matador David Renk, "El Texano," a true icon of Matadorship in the bullfight world. David passed away September 2018. He was the sixth American Matador in history since 1902 to achieve the title, and the only one of the group to ever appear in the world's largest bullring and receive the doctorate of bullfighting.
Renk started to put on bloodless events in 1986, by leasing the Houston Astrodome, where the first of a series of world class bullfights started. From there he went with his partner Mr. Jack Woodson of Brownfield, Texas, to the Hemisphere Arena in San Antonio, then to Ft. Worth, then to the coliseum in El Paso.
