Gruene Hall: Todd Snider (Raelyn Nelson opens)
Tickets: $25 | Doors: 8 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.

Kevin Fowler - Gruene Hall (Triston Marez opens)
Tickets: $30 | Doors: 7 PM

Kevin Fowler has a found way to live the dream – by earning it. It’s never been an easy road, but it’s a path he wouldn’t trade and has positioned him as one of the most consistent artists, in any genre, of the last two decades. His musical journey began playing in rock bands before finding his footing as a solo act in the early 2000s in his home state of Texas, where he burst onto the scene with the celebrated album Beer Bait and Ammo – a mainstay for fans to this day. And while his songs have been covered by Country Music mainstays such as George Jones, Mark Chesnutt, Montgomery Gentry, Sammy Kershaw and others – Kevin’s versions of these songs are feelgood classics that rival the most well-known and memorable songs of any of his contemporaries. Fowler released seven additional albums over the following 14 years after Beer Bait and Ammo, including his most recent effort 2016’s Coming To A Honkytonk Near You produced by Trent Wilmon. Now he readies his latest effort, Barstool Stories which was released in August 2019. Barstool Stories confirms the dream Kevin Fowler keeps living – repeatedly making great music, having a lot of fun doing it and inviting the audience to do the same and this album proudly claims its’ place as his current “snapshot in time.”

Josh Ward - Gruene Hall (Jesse Raub Jr. opens)
Tickets: $20 | Doors: 7 PM

Since the release of both his second studio album “Promises” and his latest studio album “Holding Me Together,” Josh has amassed seven consecutive #1 hits on the Texas Regional Radio Chart over two solid years and counting. It was in 2012 when Ward truly found his stride with the release of his first full length album “Promises,” produced by Grammy Award-winning producer, Greg Hunt. It seemed clear that radio had discovered their new banner artist in Ward with all five singles hitting the Top 20 on the Texas Music charts, three of those scoring #1’s -almost unheard of for a debut artist. Ward wrapped up 2013 as the Texas Regional Radio’s New Male Vocalist of the Year. When it came time to get back in the studio for his next album, Ward knew just where he was going…back to Rosewood Studios in Tyler, TX with the return of Greg Hunt behind the sound board. Ward credits the hidden jewel studio as the place where he found his sound, and Hunt as the wizard who pulled it out of him. Their work on Ward’s third full length album “Holding Me Together” (released October 2015) proved yet another triumphant collaboration—all four singles went to #1 on the TRRR Chart.

Mike Ryan (Mason Lively opens)
Tickets: $15 | Doors: 8 PM

San Antonio-born country singer-songwriter, Mike Ryan mixes contemporary country melodies with rock & roll guitars, reinforced by his soulful and passionate vocals. Ryan was born in 1988 and was raised in a musical family — his grandfather spent more than two decades leading the Texas National Guard Band, and Mike’s dad played bass in a bluegrass group while also performing in local musical theater. While Ryan graduated from the University of North Texas with a degree in criminal justice, his passion for music proved stronger in the long run, and he began performing around Texas and the Southwest. Ryan cut an EP, The First One, in 2010, and in 2012 he teamed up with Smith Music Group to release his full-length debut, Night Comes Falling. Ryan’s first two releases earned him radio airplay in his home state, and 2014’s Bad Reputation followed suit, with the tunes “Girls I Date” and “Dancing All Around It” both receiving significant radio exposure in Texas. Ryan’s resume also includes winning Song of the Year for “Dancing All Around It” with Texas Music Pickers in 2014 and New Male Vocalist of the Year at the Texas Regional Radio Awards in 2015. Mike Ryan released his latest album, Blink You’ll Miss It, in October 2017.

Roger Creager - Gruene Hall (Cody Bryan opens)
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.

Kody West - Gruene Hall (Giovannie & the Hired Guns opens)
TICKETS: $15 | DOORS: 7 PM

Kody started playing music in the beginning of 2014, eager to take on as many acoustic gigs and songwriting competitions in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area that he could. As a frequent support act of the Texas Country/Red Dirt band Dalton Domino and the Front Porch Family, he took on the role of tour manager beginning of 2015. On the road with the band, he rapidly gained valuable hands-on experience working and playing music across the state of Texas. Thanks to his time on the road and his ability to fill in and play when needed, he was quick to gain a fast following of loyal fans. Kody recorded his first full production EP later that year in Stephenville, Texas with producers Ben Hussey and Josh Serrato. The EP titled Higher Ground released January of 2016 with “Playing Cards” as the first strong, poignant single. Kody’s music has been described as a mix of Texas Country and Bluegrass with some good-for-the-soul grooves. Shortly after his EP release, Kody formed a full band in order to continue his commitment to travel across the country playing his tunes to the masses.

Growing up with a single mother in San Benito, Texas, the hometown of Tejano star Freddy Fender was not easy for blues singer Charley Crockett. Hitchhiking across the country exposed Crockett to the street life at a young age, following in the footsteps of his relative, American folk hero Davy Crockett, who also lived a wild life on the American frontier. After train hopping across the country, singing on the streets for change in New Orleans’ French Quarter, busking in New York City and performing across Texas and Northern California, Crockett set off to travel the world and lived on the streets of Paris for nearly a year before searching for home in Spain, Morocco, and Northern Africa. The blues artist returned home to Texas and released his debut solo album titled A Stolen Jewel in 2015, receiving critical acclaim in Dallas and ultimately landing him a Dallas Observer Music Award that year for “Best Blues Act”. He released his sophomore record In The Night, an admirable nod to his Texas country and Louisiana blues roots, in 2016. In 2017, he found time to get back to Austin, Texas to record a collection of his favorite honky tonk songs called Charley Crockett presents Lil G.L.’s Honky Tonk Jubilee which was his first release under his new label deal with Thirty Tigers (Jason Isbell, Sturgill Simpson).
