Greenfest Artist Preview: Rodney Hayden

Rodney Hayden makes music that was made for smoky bars and nursing long necks while thinking about your present situation…and the past. It’s old school honky-tonk done with singer/songwriter sensibilities and delivered with one of the finest country voices to be found anywhere. He’s equal parts Don Williams and Gary Stewart…but all Rodney Hayden. This is country music done the right way and we’re proud he’s coming back to share his songs with us once more.   Greenfest tickets:  GF TIX! Performance date/time:  Sun July 24 at Lone Star Floathouse.  5PM. Years at Greenfest:  Five Twitter:  @rodneyhayden
