About this Event

Read Southall Band - Facebook Born and raised in the heart of Oklahoma, Read Southall brings a unique sound to country music. Growing up listening to everything from Hank Williams to Johnny Paycheck led him to fall in love with the soulful stories behind country music. The young artist quickly used these influences to find his fit in the genre. Read started performing in choirs and local bands at a young age, and at age 22 he began performing locally as a solo artist. Overnight it seemed, he had a dedicated fan base in his home state. As he continued to grow as an artist, Read began writing in between performances. Putting personal experiences to paper came naturally, “I really enjoy writing music simply because I believe I can connect with people… Words can’t describe the high you feel when someone says your music has gotten them through something. That alone is a greater honor than any dollar compensation,” says Southall. Read wrote, recorded, and independently released his first album, Six String Sorrow, in 2015 and recently released Borrowed Time with his band. With overdriven guitars and heavy drums, the Read Southall Band aims to deliver a rock and roll experience at every show.

Chris Colston - Facebook

East Texas native, Chris Colston has recently sent a storm sweeping through the Texas/ Red Dirt scene with the release of his 2018 EP, “Gone.” The title track surpassed a half-million streams on Spotify in just a few short months after its release and with that, Colston set the bar quite high for himself as well as other upcoming artists in the scene.

Colston’s musical story began when his stepfather signed him up for drum lessons at the age of 7. He knew immediately that he wanted to be a musician and a few years later he picked up the guitar. At 17, Colston formed his first band and they hit the road playing everywhere they could. Colston’s music is heavily influenced by some of the greats he grew up listening to like Lynard Skynard, The Allman Brothers and country legends Merle Haggard and Willie Nelson. His musical sound has continued to grow with inspiration from Whiskey Myers and Blackberry Smoke. Listening to them helped Colston curate his own style of what he describes as “gritty Texas roots combined with a little blues and rock n’ roll.” His powerful vocals are undeniable and his honest, relatable lyrics resonate with his rapidly growing fan base creating a product you cannot deny.
