Today the Houston Chronicle posted news about a two-day music festival in in Bryan-College Station, at the Texas World SpeedwayÂ on October 13 and 14th, which will feature Willie Nelson, Los Lonely Boys, Lyle Lovett, Flatlanders, Robert Earl Keen, Tim McGraw, Miranda Lambert, Trace Atkins, Los Lonely Boys, Drive by Truckers, Leon Russell, Dirks Bentley and over 40 other mostly country and Americana acts.
TheÂ festival is being put together by C3 Presents, which also organizes the Austin City Limits Festival and Lollapalooza. Two-day passes will go on sale at 7 a.m. Saturday. Prices and other information are available at www.bigstatefestival.com.
I guess this will send the message — Don’t mess with Texas, California! Coachella or not, Texas is the Country Music Capital of the world!
