Foster & Lloyd is an American country music duo consisting of singer-songwriters Radney Foster and Bill Lloyd. After pairing up in 1986, the duo recorded three albums for RCA Records, charting nine singles on the Billboard country charts. The highest-peaking of these was their debut single "Crazy Over You", a No. 4 hit in 1987. After disbanding in 1990, Foster and Lloyd began solo careers. They reunited in 2010 to release a fourth studio album.
The tandem consists of Radney Foster (lead vocals, rhythm guitar) and Bill Lloyd (harmony and occasional lead vocals, lead and rhythm guitars).
They met while employed at MTM publishing in Nashville. They co-wrote the country hit "Since I Found You" in 1986 for Sweethearts of the Rodeo before obtaining their own record deal. Their self-titled debut LP produced five hit singles on the U.S. Billboard country music charts. Follow-up albums, Faster & Llouder (1989) and Version of the Truth (1990) were less successful. After the third record, they parted ways and embarked on solo careers. They reunited in 2010 and released a fourth studio album in May of 2011.
They were hailed by critics for their tasteful blend of popular country and rock and roll. Foster described their style "a country garage band" which is "harking back to what was best in music in the '50s and '60s and making it part of the '80s." Their musical style combined Foster's plainspoken lyrics with Lloyd's virtuoso guitar licks and power pop sensibilities.
