Tunes of Independence

Each summer, July 4th rolls around and people make playlists of their favorite patriotic tunes related to the holiday.  Here are a few you can crank this weekend at your bbq, parade or firework extravaganza!



Greenfest Artist Preview: Kensie Coppin


Kensie Coppin was bitten by the music bug at an early age.  She moved to Nashville at age 13 to chase her dreams before ending up back in Texas several years later to put her new knowledge to work.  This young artist has a shape shifting ability to perform a variety of styles.  Her music is rooted in country, but she’s also able to pull of stuff with rock and pop sensibilities too.  Being a fearless performer with great range is no small feat.  Kensie has been grinding away at gigs across the state and beyond making new fans with each stop.  Come see why at GF16.
