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!
Authenticity. Self-reliance. Hard work. Camaraderie. Gratitude. These are the qualities Zane Williams sings about in his rootsy anthem “Texas Like That”–the title track of his 5th studio album–and so it comes as no surprise that these are also the qualities on which his rapidly-growing career is built. Zane has earned a reputation for releasing albums on which every song is worth listening to over and over, and “Texas Like That” is no exception to that rule. Zane is an anomaly in today’s country music….a modern-day “throwback” who is equal parts bar-room entertainer and introspective poet. What makes Zane Williams stand out is his songs… Like mini movies, they pull you in, tell you a story, make you laugh, and remind you of life’s deepest truths. Zane wrote all eleven songs on his latest album, and while they cover a broad range of sonic and lyrical territory, his unique voice runs through them like a thread that ties them all together.
