Love & War in Texas (Plano location at the NE corner of U.S. 75 and Plano Parkway), annually hosts the Singer/Singwriter contest named after the late and oh-so-great Rusty Wier, a Texas Hill Country-based musician who entertained countless folks for decades.

Round Two of this year’s Rusty Wier singer/songwriter contest got off to a dynamite start Sunday (Feb. 12) with eight of the 25 remaining musicians swapping songs and making more friends, and just all-about having fun while making music and friends.

Playing this week were:  Alex Lease, Zack Jones, Wesley Joe Malone, Stacey Shope, Larry Martin, David Byboth, Jess Skelton, and Harley Dale Brown. Their pictures are shown in that link above.

Oh, yeah — almost forgot — added bonus this week. Big Gus Samuelson and Guthrie Kennard both sang one of their songs at the end of the night. What a treat!

Week 2, Sunday, Feb. 19, will feature: Byron Dowd, Ed McGory, Matt Nix, Whitney O’Neil, Marina Rocks, Tanner Sparks, Mr. Troll, Tyler John, and Town Walsh, tho the order of their song-swapping will be disclosed Sunday, when it kicks off. Music starts at 4 p.m., and there’s no cover charge for these days of great music.

UPDATE:  NOT going to skip a week, because of construction being postponed instead.  4 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 26  Scheduled then are:  Jake Bays, J.D. Cobb, Matt Dunn, Kevin Edwards, Nick Flint, Hanah & Hailey, Bryan Adam Joyner, and Robin Willis.
