“I was the only woman musician to have been on Bob Wills’ payroll.” While on her first tour with Bob Wills, Bob took her to Nudie’s of Hollywood to get an infamous Texas Playboys royal blue uniform. Her stage outfit had one significant difference—Wills insisted that she wear a skirt because women were not allowed to wear pants. Bob told her, “Now

Remember wherever you go, you will always be a Texas Playboy.” Carolyn Wills recalls, “In 1952, my father hired a young vocalist and accomplished rhythm guitar and bass player. She was 18 years old, her name was Louise Rowe, and she became the only female Texas Playboy musician he ever hired. As a Texas Playboy, Louise toured with the band in Southern California, delighting crowds and earning respect.
