Chris King Heads to the Bowen Classic

In a very hotly contested race, Chris King emerged the winner of the 4th Annual Book the Bowen Classic Event.  Over 5,000 people voted and the early lead was held by Dolly Shine and Dan Adams.  King remained consistent throughout and withstood a strong, late charge from former winner Josh Grider.  Kylie Rae Harris held her own among the boys and showed that there is a desire to see more female acts on these sorts of bills.  King campaigned smart and hard.  He will represent the field extremely well and we hope to see everyone in Waco on June 1st to support King and this great event.  If your favorite didn’t win, thanks for participating.

FINAL STANDINGS:
  • Kylie Rae Harris - 13%
  • Zack McGinn & Wesley Hall of Dolly Shine - 12% 
  • Dan Adams - 10% 
  • Zane Williams - 4% 
  • Jeff Whitehead - 3%

Hypothetical Musical Draft

Few events that are of such little substance receive as much attention as the NFL Draft.  A parade of measurements, pseudo-science and unpredictability mesh together to make what should be a relatively simple process much too complicated.  But, it’s all for TV, so who can blame them?

What insane pick will Jerry Jones make?  Where will Johnny Football land?  Will Mel Kiper’s hair move?  These are the things we want to know.  This all got us to thinking.  What if Texas/Red Dirt/Americana music held a draft?  Who would go first?  Would it be a frontman?  Musician? Songwriter? Tour manager? Producer? Booking agent?

If you were starting a band, much like an expansion team, who would you draft first and why?  

**Put your answer in the comments section of this article.  The best, most insightful or funniest answer, as arbitrarily determined by us after a few Shiner Bocks, wins a pair of Greenfest 14 tickets.… Keep Reading
