Ray’s of Hope Concert and Golf Tourney

Our good friend Wade Bowen and his Classic aren’t the only golf game in town, or the state, as it were.  Some folks in Gatesville have rounded up quite the cool line-up for a golf tournament fundraiser in a couple weeks. April 11-12.  A concert featuring some really cool acts such as full band performances from Adam Hood, Jason Eady and Thieving Birds will be alongside some acoustic performances from acts you don’t get to see very often anymore: Ryan Turner, Ryan James and Clayton Landua formerly of 6 Market Blvd.  The opportunity to raise some money for a good cause AND see some guys jam some tunes that you don’t get to see much anymore is too cool to pass up. We hope to see you in Gatesville on April 11-12.

Lift Up Jayce Ward

Josh and Heather Ward are part of the Galleywinter family.  They’re what we like to refer to as “old-skool”.  Heather was a part of the original Tore Up From the Floor Up group that birthed this website/community.  We’ve watched Josh grow from banging around on a couple chords to becoming one of the most successful independent artists in Texas at the moment.  Recently, their young son Jayce has been beset by some medical issues.  The family has circled the wagons around their little man and due to this Josh and Heather have missed a great deal of work.  Postponed gigs equals postponed money that the family could use now.  Due to this, a GoFundMe has been set up for the family where you can learn more about Jayce’s prognosis and the family’s story.  The Texas Music Family at large, and the Galleywinter family more specifically, encourage you to consider donating to the Ward’s.  They’re good people…and they’re family.

{Brad�s Corner}

Aaron Watson barnstormed the national country music scene last week during CRS.  His The Underdog album raced to the top of the charts and spurned many think pieces in the wake of the Gary Overton spewn ignorance. The passion and fervor displayed by his core fanbase spurred him to the top of the charts and the forefront of the ongoing “where is country music headed?” conversation.

This passionate underbelly of support comes from the fanbase Aaron has built one show at a time for well over a decade on the Texas circuit.  His authenticity and genuine nature has allowed him to connect to audiences on a grander scale than many of his Texas peers.  He shares his life from the stage and speaks about his wife and kids in such a reverential tone that you want to emulate what he does.  He’s a God-fearing man burning the honky-tonks down.  People respond to that.  People respect that.  People relate to that.  Fans feel connected to Aaron Watson on a deep level.  The type of level they could only dream of attaining with an artist on the Blake Shelton level of fame. Aaron speaks directly to them and not down to them.  He shakes their hand after the show and signs anything they want signed.… Keep Reading
