Crow announces Opry debut

Tuesday, June 23, 2015 – Texas artist Bart Crow will make his debut on the Grand Ole Opry on Friday, Aug. 21.

"Honestly, I believe I am still in shock being invited to play the Grand Ole Opry," said Crow. "It is the shrine of country music and every song I was raised on, from both of my grandfathers to my own dad. To think that I will be standing on the very hallowed circle of wood that so many legends and heroes who blurred the boundaries of music performed, it is quite overwhelming. It is a great honor and dream I never imagined possible. And this year is the Opry's 90th anniversary ...take a moment to let that sink in."

Crow has released five albums in over a decade. He has sold more than 40,000 albums and lofted 6 number 1 singles onto the Texas Music Chart as an indie artist.

Now signed to Thirty Tigers, Crow will release "The Parade" this fall, reuniting with producer Justin Pollard. "Life Comes At You Fast" is the debut single.

Don Henley announced from the outset, though, how the group continues to tour primarily so it can keep the Eagles' many great songs alive.... »»»
Concert Review: Lovett could not have scripted it any better – Cerritos is a fair distance from Hollywood, but Lyle Lovett, who has accumulated a long list of acting credits, sometimes seemed like he was giving a company town performance this night. Maybe it was because Paul Reiser, the "Mad About You" star, introduced Lovett with a funny bit about what some of the man's songs mean (or don't mean).... »»»
