Festival organizer Brian Andrews said, “We are disheartened by the tragedy in West, Texas. Texans are passionate about their communities and upon hearing of this tragedy, the Texas music community reached out to lend a helping hand.”

The festival features an lineup of Texans including The Randy Rogers Band, Josh Abbott Band, Wade Bowen, Stoney LaRue and more.
