The idea was broached by Josh Abbott’s tour manager, Cody Kelley, on Twitter the other day of having an amphitheater tour revolving around five of the larger names in Texas/Red Dirt music acts. We think that’s a tremendous idea! Metal has Ozzfest. Alternative has Warped Tour, and so on. Granted, those productions are a larger scope than we’re talking, but there’s no reason a rotating festival of the biggest bands at huge venues wouldn’t draw and work. Sure, we can see any of these guys at our local Graham Wild West Central Rodeo Station, but putting them on a shed tour of the major markets in Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Colorado etc would be cool.
That bears the question:
-What five acts would you put on the bill?
