Stoney LaRue (Aaron Einhouse opens)
TICKETS: $25 | DOORS: 8 PM

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. 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 his latest release, 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.

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!)

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!

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.

Wade Bowen (Kaitlin Butts opens)
TICKETS: $25 | DOORS: 8 PM

Across five independent albums and a decade-plus of touring, Wade Bowen has amassed a string of regional hits and awards, and also a fan base that is passionate about music. Indeed, in the fourteen years since Bowen launched his career, he’s risen from collegiate greenhorn to the top of the Texas music and Red Dirt circuit. His colleagues and friends Pat Green, Jack Ingram, Eli Young Band and others had made the major-label leap, helping to take a vibrant regional sound to the rest of America. Now Bowen is poised to bring that Red Dirt and independent spirit to country music at large. According to The New York Times, Wade Bowen is “…an earnest and direct singer who wrings feeling from a small vocal gestures and whose songwriting…is graceful, with a twists like small sighs.”

Granger Smith has been busy reinventing the face of traditional country music one chart-topping single at a time.

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.

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

Jason Boland has a reputation of being a modern day country music outlaw. Both he and his band have been leaders in the Texas and Oklahoma music scene for many years. Though Jason is the primary songwriter and singer, this is no one-man show. Jason Boland & The Stragglers have always been true: that of self-reliance, determined professionalism and bringing the best music possible to fans. While at first glance Jason Boland & The Stragglers’ music may seem easy to stereotype as Texas or Country, intent listening makes it harder to categorize their music easily, revealing the influence of the land and life that got them to where they are. Boland knows he can’t shy away from questions about how to classify his music but simply states, “The Chinese don’t call it Chinese food, it’s just food. I’m just making music.” Released in October 2015, their eighth album, Squelch, is angry, subversive, pointed and powerful.

Delbert McClinton (Kree Harrison opens)
Tickets: $45 | Doors: 8 PM

Delbert McClinton has been singing R&B, blues, rockabilly and country for 35 years, starting on the Texas honky-tonk circuit. This soulful, roadhouse-bred musician has enjoyed such distinctions as songwriter, singer, bandleader, and harp player. His name appears in the Book of Lists as one of the top 20 harp players in the world. McClinton’s voice still has the uncanny ability to transport the listener to a dusty Texas barroom that’s soaked in roadhouse blues. Such are his performances at Gruene Hall . . . this Texas musical treasure’s rockin’, bluesy style is all his own. And there’s a lot more good rockin’ to come from this enduring, original and ever-soulful artist.

TICKETS: $20 | DOORS: 7 PM

Combining the soul of country and the spirit of Rock-n-Roll, Junior Brown’s music appeals to country purists, alternative country rebels, rock-n-roll lovers and to mainstream music lovers. Junior expresses his virtuosity on his distinctly unique instrument, the twin-necked “guit-steel,” which is an efficient combination of a steel guitar and an electric guitar, one which he affectionately calls “Big Red”. In Junior’s hands, the guit-steel is an amazing tool, a means to creating some of the hottest, most heartfelt playing heard in years.

For over 20 years, Joe Ely has been one of the most magical performers to rock the floors at Gruene Hall. He’s been penned a wandering minstrel, gypsy cowboy, visionary song poet, and houserocker on fire, and of course, a Texas legend. Aside from fronting his own band, Joe is also one of the founding members of The Flatlanders (Butch Hancock, Jimmie Gilmore), and member of the Grammy Award winning group, Los Super Seven. Joe Ely’s music crosses the line over several genres of music such as country and rock. His often sold-out crowds at Gruene Hall won’t allow for much dancing at his show, but his music, his songs, and his all-star band will move your feet and rock your soul.
