Keat at Gladewater-2.jpg

Keaton Fields Bradbury was born in Longview, Texas, on September 14, 2008, and has been a lifelong resident of Marshall, Texas.  He is the son of Haley and Brian Bradbury.  Keaton has two older siblings, Karley and Klein Bradbury.  The family resides on the Bradbury cattle ranch in Harrison County, Texas.  Keaton has grown up working on the ranch and, as a result, has a deep love for cattle ranching.  

During his toddler years, family quickly picked up on his interest in music and his desire to be center-stage!  It was being said that Keaton reminded everyone of his great grandfather, Bobby Choate. Because of their similarities and love for country music, Keaton was given a small guitar, for Christmas, when he was six years old.  Soon after, he started guitar and piano lessons with Melinda Boyd. 

On February 18, 2022, Keaton's great grandfather passed away.  He has treasured  memories of singing with him and listening to his many stories.

Keaton began sharing his talents with others around the age of eight. During the past two summers, he has performed in Assisted Living Homes - calling it his summer ministry.  As well, during the summer of 2017, Keaton performed for the first time at The Gladewater Opry, in Gladewater, Texas and he continues to perform there now on a regular basis.  In 2018, Keaton auditioned for the John Ritter Showcase at the Texas Country Music Hall of Fame. He was the youngest competitor chosen as a finalist in the competition, giving him another opportunity to perform with a professional band in front of a large crowd.  Keaton has gone on to audition and perform at the 2019, 2021 and 2022 John Ritter Showcases.  

In 2018, Keaton auditioned for a western movie "No Man's Land", being filmed in the east Texas area. He landed the role and played the part of Will Childress, the main character's son.  

Keaton will take the stage, with a six member band,  at the Shreveport Red River Revel on October 2, 2022 and be the final performer of the day before Mr. Neal McCoy sets up and takes the stage.

Keaton is unusually dedicated to practicing his music.  Not only does he practice guitar, and constantly work on new songs to perform, he plays the piano. Keaton's Nana, also referred to as his "Nanager", Sandy Dunham, is usually seen at his side during practices and performances.  Having grown up listening to her father play the old country music, she is a driving force behind Keaton's musical growth. 

 

For fun, Keaton enjoys riding his horse, working cattle, tie down roping, fishing, and hunting.

Keaton is a home school student.
