Zane Williams

Gruene Hall
New Braunfels, Texas

Doors: 7pm
Opener: Ray Johnston 8pm
Zane Williams: 9:30pm

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.

Doors: 8pm
Opener: Prophets & Outlaws 9pm
Curtis Grimes: 10:30pm

Already a chart-topping country star on the Texas circuit, Curtis Grimes swings for the fences – and embraces a bigger, broader audience – with his new EP, Bottom of the Fifth. Curtis sticks to his small town roots, taking you through the heart of country music for the 21st century. An impressive career as a collegiate and all-state baseball pitcher took him all around the state, and his growing success as a musician – including a stint on the first season of The Voice, where he competed on Cee Lo Green’s team – gave him the opportunity to expand his reach. He hasn’t forgotten his past – and with a catalog that include Number One singles like “Cowboy Kind” and “Our Side of the Fence,” both of which climbed to the top of the Texas country charts. With one boot planted in traditional country and the other pointing toward something new and progressive, Curtis is turning Bottom of the Fifth into his biggest release to date. Game on.

Kelly Willis & Bruce Robison

Opener: Kaitlin Butts 8pm
Kelly Willis & Bruce Robison: 9:30pm

Kelly Willis’ and Bruce Robison’s individual artistic achievements already sum up to impressive totals, but when they unite as an ongoing musical act, the sum of the parts is a musical quantity is far greater than the whole. Willis has reigned as a critically acclaimed roots music singer and Robison has made his mark as both a writer of smash #1 hits like “Wrapped” (George Strait), “Angry All The Time” (Tim McGraw & Faith Hill) and “Travelin’ Soldier” (Dixie Chicks) and an artist in his own right. When playing together occasionally over the years turned into a real collaboration, this couple in life, love and parenthood now unite as a band all its own. It’s more about the promise and thrills of the new than their considerable solo legacies and the laurels they have already earned.

Opener: Zach Nytomt 9pm
Dirty River Boys: 10:30pm

Playing upwards of 200 dates a year, giving heartfelt, unrestrained performances, and winning over a loyal audience show-by-show, The Dirty River Boys have notched a number of significant milestones, opening for legend Willie Nelson several times and selling out the famed Gruene Hall. All four members of DRB have a hand in the songwriting, and all four sing as well, while members often switch off instruments during shows. This isn’t just a vehicle for a songwriting front man, with an interchangeable crew of instrumentalists bringing those ideas to life. And so, after a pair of EPs and an album, “Science of Flight,” that served as a tour calling card, the time couldn’t be better for an anthemic, hook-laden declaration of intent, served up to an audience beyond DRB’s Texas diehards. The record is both a cohesive statement and a dizzying testament to the band’s capabilities, as it shifts gears between genres with the skill of a long-haul trucker.

Hayes Carll

Gruene Hall
New Braunfels, Texas

Doors: 7pm
Opener: TBA 8pm
Hayes Carll: 9:30pm

Hayes Carll is an odd mix. Wildly literate, utterly slackerly, impossibly romantic, absolutely a slave to the music, he is completely committed to the truth and unafraid to skewer pomposity, hypocrisy and smallminded thinking. Carll connects with music lovers across genres lines. Playing rock clubs and honkytonks, Bonnaroo, Stones Fest, SXSW and NXNE, he and his band merge a truculent singer/songwriter take that combines Ray Wylie Hubband’s lean freewheeling squalor with Todd Snider’s brazen Gen Y reality and a healthy dose of love amongst unhealthy people. After releasing Flowers & Liquor in 2002, Carll was voted the Best New Artist of 2002 by The Houston Post. He would go on to release Little Rock on his own Highway 87 label, which became the first self-owned project to the top the Americana charts. Each album expands on his already extreme vintage country, extreme thumping bad road boogie, extreme heartbroken ache – and finds new ways to take on the fate of the nation. Whether it’s the GI protagonist in the propulsive title track of KMAG YOYO, the train wreck objet d’amour of “Drunken Poet’s Dream,” also recorded by Hubbard, the road warrior of both “I Got A Gig” and “Little Rock” or the stoner liberal and the uptight Republican vixen of “Another Like You,” Carll paints vivid pictures of humanity as it really is. Thickheaded. Avaricious. Squalid. Hungry. Angry. Getting by.

Jack Ingram

New Braunfels, Texas

Doors: 7pm
Opener: TBA 8pm
Jack Ingram: 9:30pm

When Jack Ingram won the 2008 Academy of Country Music award for “Best New Male Vocalist,” thousands of people in the audience had to be smiling to themselves about that whole “new” thing. They knew the thirty-something, steel-eyed veteran accepting that trophy on that stage in Vegas had been rocking roadhouses, theaters and stadiums relentlessly since 1997, that he’d been celebrated by critics and fans of hard-core country music for more than a decade, and that as a Texas-born songwriter and performer, he’d been on the short list of next generation artists who could fill the boots of Lone Star legends like Willie and Waylon and the boys. But the award did mean that Ingram, after trials and setbacks that would have buckled other artists, had at last matched the commercial success he’d always wanted with the integrity on which he’d always insisted. So he told the crowd with no small measure of pride and triumph that night that “big dreams and high hopes” can come true. As if to validate and amplify that truth, Ingram remained in the forefront of country music with his album Big Dreams & High Hopes, the seventh studio disc of his career. Inspired by the music of his heroes Jerry Jeff Walker, Willie Nelson, Guy Clark, Ray Wylie Hubbard, and many others. Ingram’s latest album, Midnight Motel, is his first album in seven years and will be released on August 26th.

This is a limited seating concert with chairs set up on the dance floor. All seating will be first come, first serve.

For fifty years now, Loretta has fashioned a body of work as artistically and commercially successful – and as culturally significant – as any female performer you’d care to name. Her music has confronted many of the major social issues of her time, and her life story is a rags-to-riches tale familiar to pop, rock and country fans alike. The Coal Miner’s Daughter – the refers to a hit single, an album, a best-selling autobiography, an Oscar-winning film and to Lynn herself – has journeyed from the poverty of the Kentucky hills to Nashville superstardom to her current status as an honest-to-goodness American icon. Loretta’s instantly recognizable delivery is one of the greatest country-music voices in history and has earned her 52 Top 10 hits and 16 #1’s. Almost on the exact date of her golden anniversary in show business, the Recording Academy gave her its Lifetime Achievement Award. In 1972, she became the first woman in history to win the Country Music Association’s Entertainer of the Year trophy and in 1988, she entered the Country Music Hall of Fame. In 2004, Loretta won two Grammy Awards for Van Lear Rose, a collaboration with rocker Jack White.

Opener: TBA 9pm
Green River Ordinance: 10:30pm

At the core of Fifteen, the third studio album from Green River Ordinance, is a simple message: hold fast to the things that are true. Much of the freedom found on Fifteen comes from the fact that the band recorded it on its own terms. In 2011 they set out to make the kind of music that was true to them, away from the demands and restrictions of commercial music. “In that world, everything is about the three minute pop hit,” explains Jenkins. “We wanted the freedom to dig in and create our own sound.” Their first experiment out of the gate validated their instincts: “Dancing Shoes” became a breakout hit. As a band that makes music on their own terms with a focus on the things that matter most, Green River Ordinance constantly challenges the borders of genre, walking the lines of Country, Rock, Pop and Folk. This sense of freedom has evolved over the group’s 15-year career, and radiates throughout their latest album, Fifteen, which was released in January 2016.
