Meet Terry DeVolt, the artist behind T. Texas Terry:

Terry Devolt  has been entertaining audiences across the USA and around the world for over 30 years! He has won awards like Harrah’s “Entertainer of the Year” and has performed as far away as England, Canada, Singapore and Japan. From Madison Square Garden with Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus to spinning his fire lariat and touring for 3 years with country music stars, Brooks & Dunn on their award winning tour, “The Neon Circus and Wild West Show”, as well as appearing on “America’s Got Talent”, Terry has literally entertained over two million people so far in his entertainment career!

Three lesser known facts about Terry are:

• T. Texas Terry was born in Texas, but Terry grew up in Drexel, MO, (population 753) where he got his start in show business during high school when he discovered a book in the town library called “How to Juggle.” After learning that useful life skill, Terry was voted “class clown” during his senior year, a title he was honored to obtain.

• After attending college for one year and obtaining a degree in pinball and air hockey, Terry served a four-year apprenticeship in Sheet Metal Workers Local No. 2. Then he went off to Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Clown College where he became the only “walk on” student in the history of the famous circus. Without an audition or prior acceptance, he showed up the day before Clown College started and impressed the Dean of Clown College with his passion and desire to be there and was accepted on the spot.

• In a recent year of performances and touring, Terry spent 231 days on the road—truly a “road warrior” and an entertainer in demand!
