Brief Guest Interview featuring TBA

A Gruene Hall tradition, now in its 19th year, where hipsters, oldsters, suits, locals and drifters mix it up to start their weekend rite (pun intended!) This quintessential Friday happy hour celebrates the warmer weather with great beer prices, prize giveaways and the best in Texas tunes broadcast live by KNBT 92.1 FM Radio New Braunfels. There’s even a very special guest interview each week. Some that have stopped by for a chat have included Ray Benson, Steve Earle, Delbert McClinton, Radney Foster, Hayes Carll and Ray Wylie Hubbard. Good times!

Kelly Willis & Bruce Robison (Pauline Reese opens)
TICKETS: $25 | DOORS: 8 PM

*This is a limited seating concert with chairs set up on the dance floor. All seating will be first come, first serve.* Bruce Robison & Kelly Willis are often described as one of the finest roots duos working in Texas with organic harmonies that can only come from a whole lotta life lived together. This annual family-friendly tradition puts concertgoers of all ages in the holiday spirit with a warm celebration. The only place where number one hits like George Strait’s Wrapped are played alongside classics like Santa Baby, this Texas country staple is now a syndicated television show! “Until our most recent albums, we had tried our best to keep our careers separate. The holiday shows started out as our one cheat, our few shows we’d perform together each year, and it turned into this beautiful annual celebration of coming together around the holidays.” – Bruce Robison

Lyle Lovett TICKETS: $95 | DOORS: 7 PM

A singer, composer and actor, Lyle Lovett has broadened the definition of American music in a career that spans 14 albums over three decades. Coupled with his gift for storytelling, the Texas-based musician fuses elements of Americana, swing, jazz, folk, gospel and blues in a convention-defying manner that breaks down barriers. Whether touring as a ‘Duo’ or with his ‘Acoustic Group’ or ‘The Large Band’, Lovett’s live performances show not only the breadth of this Texas legend’s deep talents, but also the diversity of his influences, making him one of the most compelling and captivating musicians in popular music. Since his self-titled debut in 1986, Lyle Lovett has evolved into one of music’s most vibrant and iconic performers. Among his many accolades, besides the four Grammy Awards, he was given the Americana Music Association’s inaugural Trailblazer Award, and was named Texas State Musician. His works, rich and eclectic, are some of the most beloved of any living artist working today.

Ray Wylie Hubbard (Mike Ethan Messick opens)
Tickets: $20 | DOORS: 7 PM

Ray Wylie Hubbard is a well-respected Texas Country singer-songwriter who is most known for his songs “Snake Farm” and “Up Against the Wall, Redneck Mother” and made famous by Jerry Jeff Walker’s 1973 recording. The renowned Americana hero returns with a lean ’n’ mean follow-up to 2012’s triumphant The Grifter’s Hymnal with his latest album, The Ruffian’s Misfortune. Soon to be followed by his uproarious, hair-raising autobiography, A Life…Well, Lived, The Ruffian’s Misfortune was co-produced by Hubbard and bassist George Reiff and showcases Hubbard’s bluesy slide alongside the twin guitar leads of Gabe Rhodes and Hubbard’s son, Lucas.

Bob Schneider’s fellow Texans as well as his rabid U.S. fanbase will testify to his abilities, as he has become the most awarded singer songwriter in Austin’s history, winning over thirty Austin Music Awards. His scruffy good looks and strong, husky voice provide a good complement to his semi-confessional songwriting. The real beauty of Schneider’s artistic career is about the freedom to constantly write, record and stockpile songs. While he’s already released hundreds of songs with his bands, Schneider estimates there were at least a thousand songs that didn’t fit his band’s concepts.

Aaron Watson with special guest Bri Bagwell
TICKETS: $29 | DOORS: 7 PM

Aaron Watson isn’t interested in what someone else thinks he should do. But instead of getting lonely as he sidesteps expectations, he’s gaining followers – hundreds of thousands of them. Delivered with a warm smile and fueled by a wild spirit, Watson’s rebellion echoes the land that helped make him. Throughout his 17-year career that spans a dozen albums and more than 2,500 shows throughout the U.S. and Europe, 39-year-old Watson has stubbornly and sincerely identified with the everyman – even as he’s proven to be the exception to the rule. The latest evidence of Watson’s homespun singularity is Vaquero, an ambitious 16-song set of character-driven storytelling, level-headed cultural commentary, and love songs for grown-ups that promise to further solidify his status as one of today’s finest torch-bearers of real country music.

Granger Smith has been busy reinventing the face of traditional country music one chart-topping single at a time. By consistently providing blended hits that are well outside the realm of “typical”, Granger’s music provides a refreshing and unique variation on the growing independent country music scene. Granger has had 10 Top 10 singles on the Texas Music Charts including 4 Top 5’s and the most recent singles “Miles and Mud Tires” and “Silverado Bench Seat” both landed at the #1 spot, the latter of which debuted on ESPN’s Sports Center. He’s even successfully launched a crowd-pleasing alter-ego, “country boy” Earl Dibbles Jr. He could never have imagined the viral success Dibbles has become, with his own singles “The Country Boy Song” and “Country Boy Love” with music videos, TV shows on CMT and CBS Sports Network, “YEE YEE” clothing lines and legions of fans all over the globe.
