2017 Music Festivals: Heart Of Texas Country Music Festival.

Out there in Brady Texas you have a wonderful Traditional Country Music operation called The Heart Of Texas Country Music Association ran by the good Mr. Tracy Pitcox and BY GOD it IS indeed in the heart of Texas. There is a museum there and also a label that boasts some of today’s most revered Legends the likes of Miss Norma Jean and Tony Booth. This fine group of folks also has cruises and awards for their ilk, as well as some truly stellar record releases that I usually go to Ernest Tubb Records Shops for.

Last year when they lost Country Legend Curtis Potter I wrote one hell of a fine article about him and greatly mourned his loss at home on Tru Country reruns. His absence leaves a large empty hole in my heart. You know with the truly great music they offer PLUS the new rise of Texas Red Dirt Country it almost makes pop country redundant doesn’t it?

This is their 28th annual event and some of it will be held at the Brady Civic Center: I’m going to highlight the dates with the correct ticket links to them so you can buy the desired date links.

2017 Music Festivals: Best Little Cowboy Gathering.

It’s time once again to embark upon the March festivals, where festival season is rapidly drawing nigh all over America. The Best Little Cowboy Gathering happens on March 9th-12th 2017 in La Grange Texas and features some really nice Traditional Texas country Music which I have always delved into and I have one other one coming soon from the Texas area that is a prominent mover of traditional Texas Country Music as well. This event happens always on the second weekend in March and if you like what you see you can purchase tickets for this event HERE. I’ll tell you what folks for the music and the venue, this one is a REAL value at 30.00 for the weekend, in fact it is one of the cheapest and most cost efficient festivals on my list in total.

It transpires at the Fayette County Fairgrounds in La Grange Texas, and this is an indoor AND outdoor event as there is a dance hall with inside and a pavilion with outdoor entertainment that happens simultaneously. FROM THE WEBSITE:  Most of our events are under a roof so any rain won’t hurt us. We go rain or shine! BRING A JACKET! Temperatures in March will drop 20-30 degrees after dark and it can get chilly. We also recommend you grab some sunscreen and your camp chairs as some of our dog and horse shows have limited seating.
