Pat Green - Gruene Hall Tickets: $37.50 | Doors: 5 PM

One of the most influential modern stars in Texas’ long country-music tradition, Pat Green has left a mark on the lives of countless fans and generations of artists, helping to solidify a cultural movement bringing artists from the Lonestar state to the national stage along the way. The problem is, he’s always been too modest to admit it. Now with the release of Dancehall Dreamin’: A Tribute to Pat Green, the legendary troubadour has no choice in the matter. He’s being saluted by those who know him best – artists like Jack Ingram, Randy Rogers Band and more – with a surprise album meant to highlight some of the icon’s best-loved songs. Since 1995, Green has released 13 albums (12 recorded in studio and one live), and sold more than two million records, racking up a staggering 12 Number Ones on the Texas Radio chart (including his most-recent single, “Drinkin’ Days”). Green has also released ten Billboard radio hits and has placed songs like “Wave on Wave” in the Top Five of Billboard’s Country Airplay chart. He’s been nominated for three Grammy awards and is still regarded as one of the most electrifying entertainers on tour, covering millions of miles and filling venues like the historic Gruene Hall and the massive Houston Astrodome with equal ease. Even mainstream stars like Willie Nelson, Kenny Chesney, Keith Urban and Dave Matthews have taken Green out on the road, recognizing the mass appeal of his everyday anthems, dedicated to the simple joys and inevitable heartbreaks of the American experience. In short, Green has been instrumental in putting Texas country on the map, paving the way for scores of other artists who share his passion for authenticity.

James McMurtry- Gruene Hall (Bonnie Whitmore opens)
TICKETS: $15 | DOORS: 8 PM

James McMurtry spins stories with a poet’s pen and a painter’s precision. Proof: The acclaimed songwriter’s new Complicated Game. McMurtry’s first collection in six years spotlights a craftsman in absolutely peak form as he turns from political toward personal. “James McMurtry is one of my very few favorite songwriters on Earth and these days he’s working at the top of his game,” says Americana all-star Jason Isbell. “He has that rare gift of being able to make a listener laugh out loud at one line and choke up at the next. I don’t think anybody writes better lyrics.” “James writes like he’s lived a lifetime,” echoes iconic roots rocker John Mellencamp. Further evidence: McMurtry’s Just Us Kids (2008) and Childish Things (2005). The former earned his highest Billboard 200 chart position in nearly two decades and notched Americana Music Award nominations. Meanwhile, Childish Things scored endless critical praise and spent six full weeks topping the Americana Music Radio chart in 2005 and 2006. In 2006, Childish Things won the Americana Music Association’s Album of the Year and “We Can’t Make It Here” was named the rapidly rising organization’s Song of the Year. More history: McMurtry critically lauded first album Too Long in the Wasteland (1989) was produced by John Mellencamp. In 1996, McMurtry received a Grammy nomination for Long Form Music Video for Where’d You Hide the Body. Additionally, It Had to Happen (1997) received the American Indie Award for Best Americana Album.

Stoney LaRue makes real-life, thinking man’s music. The Texas native-turned-longtime Oklahoma resident has been chasing his own dream down many roads for a long time. Stoney LaRue’s newest album project, Aviator, his debut for eOne Entertainment. Don’t be fooled…LaRue has lit up and burned down a honky-tonk a time or two, becoming a Red Dirt/Texas Music circuit mainstay known for high-energy shows, and that intensity is found on AVIATOR as well, on tracks like “It’s Too Soon”, “Golden Shackles” and an album ending “Studio A JAM” not to be missed. But its tunes like “First One To Know,” the opener “One And Only” and the vivid, memory-filled title track that give AVIATOR it’s thread, trying to find a path amidst loss and life changes, redemption and reinvention.

Gruene Hall - The Bacon Brothers (Lauren Lucas opens)
Tickets: $45 | Doors: 7 PM

Kevin and Michael Bacon have been writing songs and playing music together since about the same time they may have been fighting over Lincoln Logs or little green Army guys. In fact, the cover of their first album, Forosoco, shows as much; the picture, taken in 1972, shows Kevin and Michael onstage playing congas and guitar, respectively. The look of communication between the two is telling: although the Bacon Brothers have only been a working band since 1995, they too, run decades deep. This has been their hallmark; writing songs that, through bare self-expression and humor, echo the lives of others. It’s an art they’ve refined over three albums and in the 50 to 60 shows they play each year. And with each album and tour, the Bacon Brothers move further away from perceived “don’t tap on the glass” sideshow to a “raise your lighter and sing along” rock band, garnering fan after fan and shattering the obstacle of perception. The band began when Michael received an invitation to play a one-off gig at a local club in their hometown of Philadelphia. It went off well, and Kevin and Michael decided to explore its potential. Sold-out gigs in New York, LA, Nashville, Chicago and San Francisco followed, as well as a high-profile show opening for The Band at Carnegie Hall and appearing alongside the likes of Shania Twain and Wyclef Jean on the TNT Network’s “The Gift of Song” special. In eight years of recording and touring, the band has become a top live draw and continues to build momentum. “When we first started, the people who attended our shows came strictly to see Kevin Bacon, the movie star,” says Michael. “Now people come to see and hear The Bacon Brothers.”

Gruene Music & Wine Fest- Tanya Tucker Tickets: $55.00 | Doors: approx. 9PM

In 1974, Rolling Stone ran a cover story on Tanya Tucker with the headline that said “You’re Gonna Hear From Me.” Truer words have never been spoken. The country music icon’s sultry voice and vivacious stage presence makes her one of the most admired and respected female vocalists in the country music genre. Tanya’s reign includes 23 Top 40 albums and a string of 56 Top 40 singles, 10 of which reached the No. 1 spot on the Billboard charts. Along the way, she has provided some of the biggest country music hits of each decade, including, “Delta Dawn,” “Soon,” “Two Sparrows in a Hurricane,” “It’s a Little Too Late,” “Trouble” and “Texas (When I Die),” just to name a few. Tucker is also the recipient of numerous awards, including two CMAs, two ACMs and three CMT awards. In August 2016, the Academy of Country Music honored Tucker with the Cliffie Stone Icon Award during the 10th Annual ACM Honors™. All-inclusive sales of singles, albums, hits collections and digital downloads have topped 25 million records worldwide.

Gruene Hall- Casey Donahew Band (Opening Band - TBA)
TICKETS: $25 | DOORS: 8 PM

Texas tornado Casey Donahew kicked off perhaps his biggest year yet in October 2011 with the release of his fourth studio album, Double Wide Dream. Selling out venues across the country, the Casey Donahew Band continues to thrill crowds each week with a combined frenetic onstage energy and everyman likeability, and media outlets around the country are starting to catch on to what the fans have known all along – this guy knows how to rock it. A testament to Casey Donahew’s growing popularity, the song “Double Wide Dream” is a perfect example of the Burleson native’s ability not to take himself or anything else too seriously and just enjoy the ride – and what a whirlwind of a ride it is becoming for this Texas sensation as he skyrockets closer and closer to country superstardom!

Black Joe Lewis & the Honeybears - Gruene Hall (Opening Band TBA)
Tickets: $15 | Doors: 7pm

While working at a pawn shop in Austin, Joe Lewis first picked up the guitar. Shortly thereafter, he immersed himself in the local Red River blues/garage scene, recording and performing with Austin luminaries such as the Weary Boys and Walter Daniels. Upon the release of the 2005 Brian Salvi produced Black Joe Lewis and The Cold Breeze EP with standout track “Bitch I Love You” featuring Matt Hubbard on Rhodes electric piano and the 2007 album Black Joe Lewis, the band gained critical national acclaim and toured as openers for Spoon and Okkervil River in 2007. Their debut album Tell ‘Em What Your Name Is! was released on March 17, 2009 and was produced by Spoon’s drummer Jim Eno. Black Joe Lewis & the Honeybears have performed at music festivals including Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits Music Festival, Bonnaroo, Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival and more. The band has appeared on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, Late Show with David Letterman, and Austin City Limits. In 2017, his latest album, Backlash, debuted at number 3 on the Billboard Top Blues Albums Chart. In 2018, Black Joe Lewis & the Honeybears returned with their most subversive record to date. The Difference Between Me & You was influenced by Lewis’ first decade on the road, embodying a deep repertoire of sounds. It draws from the heavy grooves of Albert King, the punked-up blues of R.L. Burnside, the storytelling of Bobby “Blue” Bland, and the soulfully layered horns of the Stones.

Jason Boland & The Stragglers - Gruene Hall (Opening Band TBA)
TICKETS: $25 | DOORS: 7 PM

Our favorite songs are like one-night stands: passionate or sad, capable of recalling moments with Proustian power. Our favorite artists are lifelong companions: fixtures we turn to for comfort and highs. Over the last two decades, Jason Boland & The Stragglers have delivered and become both. With their new record Hard Times are Relative, Boland and the Stragglers stack the smart, road-ready outlaw country longtime fans have come to expect alongside creative risks that flirt with punk and psychedelic sounds. The 10-song collection is a rare blend of instantly gratifying and rewarding of closer listens. No one has combined Woody Guthrie’s conscience with Waylon Jennings’ panache quite like Boland and the Stragglers. Since debuting in 1999 with the Lloyd Maines-produced Pearl Snaps, the band has matured without taming their refreshing irreverence. As he mulls over where the Stragglers have been and where they’re headed, Boland comes back to one idea over and over again: he and his band are who they are, and with that genuineness comes grit, beauty, and staying power. Here’s to the next 20 years.

Dirty River Boys - Gruene Hall (Tyler Stuckey opens)
TICKETS: $15 | DOORS: 8 PM

Playing upwards of 200 dates a year, giving heartfelt, unrestrained performances, and winning over a loyal audience show-by-show, the Dirty River Boys have notched a number of significant milestones, opening for legend Willie Nelson several times and selling out the famed Gruene Hall. Indeed, The Dirty River Boys have an incredible number of strengths. All four members have a hand in the songwriting, singing, and often switch instruments during shows. This isn’t just a vehicle for a songwriting frontman, with an interchangeable crew of instrumentalists bringing those ideas to life. And so, after a pair of EPs and an album, “Science of Flight,” that served as a tour calling card, the time couldn’t be better for an anthemic, hook-laden declaration of intent, served up to an audience beyond DRB’s Texas diehards. The record is both a cohesive statement and a dizzying testament to the band’s capabilities, as it shifts gears between genres with the skill of a long-haul trucker. There’s traditional, honky-tonk country (“Didn’t Make The Cut”), Flogging Molly-style Celtic rock (“Sailed Away”) and an all-out greasy road rocker (“Highway Love”). No matter the genre, the band has a knack for imbuing every one of their songs. And you still get the feeling the ’Boys are just getting warmed up!

The album’s 10 new songs seamlessly merge strains of Tex-Mex, Cuban bolero, R&B, blues, country and rock ‘n’ roll.

Drive-By Truckers have always been outspoken, telling a distinctly American story via craft, character, and concept, all backed by sonic ambition and social conscience. Founded in 1996 by singer/songwriter/guitarists Mike Cooley and Patterson Hood, the band have long held a progressive fire in their belly but with American Band, they have made the most explicitly political album in their extraordinary canon. A powerful and legitimately provocative work, hard edged and finely honed, the album is the sound of a truly American Band – a Southern American band – speaking on matters that matter. DBT made the choice to direct the Way We Live Now head on, employing realism rather than subtext or symbolism to purge its makers’ own anger, discontent, and frustration with societal disintegration and the urban/rural divide that has partitioned the country for close to a half-century. American Band’s considerable force can in part be credited to the sheer musical strength of the current Drive-By Truckers line-up, with Hood and Cooley joined by bassist Matt Patton, keyboardist/multi-instrumentalist Jay Gonzalez, and drummer Brad Morgan – together, the longest-lasting iteration in the band’s two-decade history. American Band follows English Oceans and 2015’s It’s Great To Be Alive!, marking the first time DBT have made three consecutive LPs with the same hard-traveling crew.

Cory Morrow at Gruene Hall (Opening Band TBA)
TICKETS: $25 | DOORS: 7 PM

Cory Morrow didn’t become a Texas legend by being quiet. He sings about strippers and Jesus with equal fervor. While this dichotomy may leave those on either side of the moral equator perplexed – the answer is actually very simple. Cory Morrow is beautifully and uncomfortably transparent. From the beer soaked, cocaine laden days of his early career, to today’s more sober and spiritual leg of the journey, one thing about Morrow has never changed – as goes Cory’s life, goes Cory’s songs – and that’s never been more evident than on his latest studio release “Whiskey & Pride”. It’s an aggressive blend of early Morrow sound with a current day perspective. Vintage feel from an evolving heart and mind. “Whiskey & Pride” is another mile-marker in the journey of Cory Morrow. As evidenced by his latest recordings, live shows, and online communication with fans, he’s not pandering, he’s simply doing what he knows. Pulling back the curtains, letting us in, and letting the chips fall where they may.

Gruene Hall: Todd Snider (Raelyn Nelson opens)
Tickets: $25 | Doors: 7 PM

This very special solo performance is a limited seating concert with chairs set up on the dance floor. All seating will be first come, first serve. One morning near the end of August, Todd Snider was relaxing with a visitor on the back porch of his house just outside Nashville, drinking coffee and shooting the breeze while his dog, Cowboy Jim, took a nap nearby. After a while, Snider said to his guest, “I’ve got an album’s worth of songs, and I think the songs are telling me to make a folk record.” This was a surprising bit of news considering he had spent the last six years making rock albums of one kind or another. But Snider was feeling as if he had “maybe drifted too far from the shore.” He was feeling the pull to start over, to go back to what he was doing when he first began, to return to his roots as a folksinger. If Snider is anything, he is a true artist, and he reminds us of that on Cash Cabin Sessions, Vol. 3. At a point in time when the world has never been more complicated and confusing, with people getting louder and louder, Snider did a 180, went back to his roots as a folksinger, to a simpler, quieter form of expression; and it might be what the world is waiting to hear: just a man, his guitar, and the truth.

Roger Creager - Gruene Hall (Opening Band TBA)
Tickets: $25 | Doors: 7 PM

Roger Creager is an adventurist; he does not like to sit still while the world passes by. Whether it’s climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa, snow skiing in the Rockies, catching tuna 100 miles from shore, piloting his airplane to far-off concerts, or playing music through the Italian countryside, he tries to get the most out of what the world has to offer. All of this finds its way into Roger’s music and live shows. His passion for life invigorates everyone around him including his fan base. Those who get hooked on his charisma and high energy come back show after show, year after year, and record after record. Roger is very fortunate that his music career allows him this lifestyle. But he gives it back by putting his life experiences and his infectious high energy and zeal for adventure right back into his songwriting and performances. Creager may travel the world, but he never strays far from his small-town South Texas roots and his music encompasses all of him. The new EP “Gulf Coast Time” is certainly a slice out of Creager life. Roger grew up outside of Corpus Christi and has always maintained a love of saltwater. Whether he’s happy, sad, bored, or just in need of inspiration, you can bet this artist will be somewhere breathing sea air.

William Clark Green 2018 (Grant Gilbert opens)
Tickets: $20 | Doors: 8 PM

With two critically esteemed album releases already under his belt, William Clark Green is back and this time it is getting personal. Give Green a pen and paper and he is a lyrical force to be reckoned with. On his critically acclaimed third release, Rose Queen, he is puts it all on the line and makes absolutely no apologies. “Songwriting is reality. People are scared to put reality on paper, but this is 10 times more reality than my past work,” he explains bluntly. The past few years have been consumed with Green touring heavily in the booming Texas scene and persistently writing a plethora of songs that are pulled from true to life experiences. Rose Queen has already marked a number of milestones for the young storyteller. The debut single, “It’s About Time”, was welcomed at radio with open arms and earned William’s first Top Ten song on Texas Radio. The momentum did not stop there as his follow up single, “She Likes The Beatles,” recently scored the #1 position on both the Texas Music Chart and the Texas Regional Radio Report in seemingly the blink of an eye. At this rate, the sky is the limit as everyone waits to see what William Clark Green has up his sleeve next.
