Well, the folks are coming, moving on down the road and arriving at the Larry Joe Taylor Texas Music Festival. Day two also brought rain, along with Texas music fans, and most of them didn’t even seem to mind. This reporter, however, ducked back into Hippie Van right after Deryl Dodd & his Homesick Cowboys. The sound here from the Bud Light stage is so unlimited that I was able to hear Wade Bowen’s and Pat Green’s sets flawlessly.

It all started off with Randy Brown — and every day will start with Randy Brown hosting the Bloody Mary Mornings inside the T-Birds Garage Bar. He’s happy when other musicians step up to the mic, but Tuesday morning, Randy carried it all off himself.

Over on the Bud Light stage, Larry Joe, Deryl and Dave Perez, aka The Coalition, sang the Star Spangled Banner as a military unit presented the American and Texas flags. The wind made them even more spectacular, if it’s at all possible for those flags to be even more heartwarming!

And then time for Double D, with Steve, Andrew and Kerry to take the stage. DD never fails to bring out the best of feelings, joy, enthusiasm, even sadness when he plays the seldom-heart sad song.

Wednesday, both the Allsups’ and the T-Birds’ stages kick off at the same time. There’s a finely built wall to keep the sounds separate during the back-to-back concerts. It works… sometimes just barely, but it works.

And then on the Bud Light (main) stage, there will be Adam Hood, Casey Donahew band, and Turnpike Troubadours along with several others.

Still tickets left. Buy them online or at the gate.
