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.

As it is the Christmas month, Daniels sang a... »»»
Concert Review: Rawlings easily moves out of the shadow
Every once in awhile David Rawlings moves out of the shadow of musical mate Gillian Welch to launch his own tour. While Welch, for whom Rawlings plays guitar, has the more prominent career, nights like this ably confirm that there is a reason does his own thing as well.
Rawlings, who released the very fine "Poor David's Almanack" in... »»»
