LJT 25 Preview: Wednesday


Business begins to pick up on Wednesday at LJT and the lineup they’ve booked is a good indication of that.  Fan favorites like Josh Abbott and Casey Donahew headline the mainstage that night, but there are several sets to not be missed throughout the day.


The first must see of Wednesday is on the Allsup’s Acoustic stage:  Chris Knight at approximately 3:45PM.  Knight takes over a listening crowd in almost a hypnotic sense.  His stories and songs are full of such grit, reality and violence at times that it’s as if the audience is scared to anger him by not being the perfect listening audience.  That said, some of the coolest audience sing-alongs I’ve ever been witness to have happened at Knight’s prior LJT engagements.  He is the type of songwriter that is universally revered, respected and almost feared.  With his catalog of songs and the uncertainty of what may happen onstage, this is a set to not miss.


Tarleton alum and Galleywinter Ultimate LJT Giveaway participant Bart Crow will be lighting up the mainstage around 6PM.  On the strength of his best album, Dandelion and a back strengthened by surgery, Crow is putting on the best sets of his career.  Catch him in the environment where he cut his teeth as a fan and performer.

Next up is Whiskey Myers.  These east Texas rockers have picked up the old Skynyrd mantle and carried it into this century with a youthful spin on old music.  They don’t reinvent the wheel, but they can rock the house and groove with the best of them.  There may not be a better band to complement a field full of revelry at a spring festival in Texas.

Rounding out our must-sees for Wednesday is Stoney LaRue.  Stoney recently welcomed guitar phenom Rodney Pyeatt back into his band, The Arsenals.  When combined with the rhythm section of bassist Casey Twist and drummer Jeremy Bryant, you will not find a better band on that stage all week long.  Stoney’s recent sets have been energized and refreshed.
