About Stan Cox1
Born in Texas but raised in Oklahoma, Stan Cox inherited his love of music from his Dad Donley, and fine tuned his bass guitar skills at a early age. At the age of 8 years old, Stan found himself playing music along side his Dad, and other adult members. While his friends were going to parties and FFA meetings, Stan was helping provide the entertainment for those occasions
Paying his dues in any honky tonk, bar, club, or dancehalls, was a pleasure for Stan, and soon led to working with the "Oasis Band" that played for, and opened for, many Country Music Legends, including Jerry Reed, Hank Thompson, Johnny Paycheck, Johnny Bush, Faron Young, and more.
Married and divorced at a young age, Stan would re-marry in 1981, to the love of his life, and soulmate, LaDanna. The two of them soon found they shared the passion for music, and started writing songs together.
Their love for children would soon lead them to become foster parents, although they had 5 children of their own. Soon they found that the kids that came to live with them, needed permanent parents, and adopted 10 more children. When asked if they would adopt more children in the future, Stan laughs and says "if any kid needs us, we need them.
Today, Stan is concentrating on the songwriting part of his career, hoping to have that one song that becomes a part of Country Music history, and he states "I don't just want to write a 'HIT' song, I want to write a 'STANDARD'."
