Texans United Flood Relief



I don’t own a boat. I can’t go put my boots on the ground down in greater Houston right now. But, what I can do is band together with my musical brothers and sisters to provide a fundraising network.

Everybody out there waiting for help, it’s coming.

On Sunday October 8th there will be a Texas-sized statewide fundraising event being held simultaneously at a slew of your favorite music venues. Details coming over the next couple days, but I can assure you that no matter where you live in Texas, on 10/8 you will be within a short drive of a very special music event to benefit our Coastal friends in need.

We have a diverse group of industry folks (musicians, venue owners, radio etc) stretching from the Panhandle to the coast working hard on this. We are taking our time trying to get this organized to the best degree and do the maximum amount of good.

There are dozens of musicians donating their time and talent across the state that day to raise funds for our friends down south. From the biggest names you hear on the radio to the guys and gals busking for tips and everything in between.

Everyone is pitching in, the event list is growing by the day. So many folks have been helping each other out and it is inspiring and uplifting in the face of this devastation.

In the meantime, please continue to pray and send good vibes to our friends down that way.

Love y’all. Proud of our state.


Mile 0 Fest

For years, many of us have clamored for a tropical festival featuring Texas/Red Dirt Music.  Some smart folks finally listened and this winter, Texas Music at large takes over the tiny island hamlet of Key West, FL. Platinum VIP packages sold out within an hour.  GA tickets and a few gold packages are left.  We’ll be there.  We think you’d dig it too.

River Jam Rewind

by: Cody Starr

Now that River Jam is over, it’s time to start writing again. It’s been about two weeks since attending my first River Jam so I’ve had a chance to soak it all in. I pretty much went straight from the hundred degrees heat of New Braunfels to the 60-degree beauty of Breckenridge, Colorado.… Read the rest

{Review} Josh Abbott Band – Until My Voice Goes Out

Many bands reach the point of having a distinguishable brand and stop evolving.  From AC/DC to Reckless Kelly and the Rolling Stones to George Strait, once an artist lands on what makes them tick and sells albums/tickets, they normally don’t fool with the formula.  … Read the rest

{Brad's Corner} August 2017: Best of Both Worlds

{Brad�s Corner}

Last week the two hottest tickets in this scene were Sean McConnell and Koe Wetzel. Two acts as divergent as salt and pepper.  Yet, like those handy seasonings…they both go well over the same morsels.  McConnell has been mining the soulful singer/songwriter folk path without peer for over a decade now.  … Read the rest
