Dustin Perkins, who has been doing a lot more writin’ and pickin’ in his living room than in bars and festivals during the past 4-ish years changed that streak Thursday night (June 29, 2017) when he played to a nearly-packed house at Hank’s Texas Grill in McKinney.

Life on life’s terms forced the popular North Texas singer/songwriter to give it up for a while, and he did that willingly and with an open heart — it was for family.

But, he’s had music friends up on that mountain-top house he calls home, outside of Antlers, Okla., and through that he and the landowner/his boss conjured up and hosted the first Mountain Jam in mid-May. The two-day festival of live music was a huge success, and 2018 promises to provide the 2nd Mountain Jam.

Now, Dustin promises to come down off that mountain more often and spend time singing and visiting with his fans.

And, tho he made up a set list that included a lot of those new songs, Dustin accommodated every shouted-out request from the crowd.

One who attended the Thursday night concert was McKinney’s Zane Williams, for whom Dustin has been a long-time fan himself. And Jared Mitchell, lead singer of his own band, and Colton Gilbreath, leader of Sons of Fannin, also played and sang during the 2.5 hours of music at Hank’s. And there were several other musicians in the crowd, just enjoying their old buddy at his best!
