SECOND ANNUAL HOUSE PARTY

Eli Young Band and the Texas Rangers have announced details of what is now the “annual” Eli Young Band House Party. This year’s is the second House Party, taking place Saturday, November 8, at Globe Life Park in Arlington.

 

Joining EYB on stage will be Pat Green and Cody Johnson.  Green is no stranger to Texas stages.  He’s a two-time Grammy nominee who sold more than a million albums.  Johnson’s “Me and My Kind” hit number one on the Texas Music Chart this week. 

 

Kicking off the night of music will be Texas and Oklahoma female duo Maddie & Tae, the up-and-coming country sensations whose debut single “Girl In a Country Song” has nearly 6 million views on YouTube. 

 

The House Party in Arlington also features Gary Allan.

 

Tickets for the show start at $25. For more information, go to TexasRangers.com/eliyoungband.

 

The inaugural House Party a year ago was a huge success with more than 18,000 fans in attendance.

 

The House Party moves to Houston’s Minute Maid Park November 15th

 

Josh Abbott Band, Cody Johnson, and Thomas Rhett headline the Houston show.

 

ON THE SIDELINES

The Aggies’ resounding 52-28 win over South Carolina last week sure made Bonnie Bishop happy.  At game time, Bonnie was on stage at the Mucky Duck in Houston, trying to catch the action between sets. 

 

Bonnie grew up in a house with one of college football’s most revered celebrities – Jackie Sherrill.   She stood beside him on the sidelines for over ten years while he was coaching at Mississippi State.  She was only 12 when her mom married Jackie and she had never been to a football game.  “After repeated attempts to win me over with Barbie dolls and Walkmans, Jackie switched his tactics and invited me to be with him on the sidelines.” 

 

The football experience triggered a song, “Sidelines,” which Bonnie recently wrote with Django Walker.  “The song isn’t about me,” she said in a Cluttered Corner interview at Best In Texas. “It’s told from the point of view of the players who are waiting their turn on the sidelines, who are waiting their chance to shine. More than anything, it’s about being an underdog.  A lot of people can relate to that.

 

“I learned everything I know about being a fighter from those years of having a sidelines view of some of SEC football's greatest upsets, although at the time I didn’t know that experience was preparing me for the future. I was just trying not to get my ass RUN OVER on the sidelines!”

Bonnie and Django are pitching the song to ESPN and she’s putting some of her football stories down on paper.   

 

THEY CHOOSE THE ALLMAN BROTHERS

Prophets and Outlaws, that little ole band from Dallas, is out on a radio tour, and everyone told us how good they are and how much fun they are.

 

It’s all true!!! We found out when lead singer Matt Boggs, lead guitarist Stevie G, and drummer James Guckenheimer came by to film Cluttered Corner videos, which we’ll share soon at BestInTexasonline.com and TexasMusicChart.com.

 

Great singers with great harmonies and a soulful country sound that makes you think Allman Brothers, Marshall Tucker Band and a heapin’ helping of old school R&B.  During our Five Questions segment, we asked the guys to choose either Allman Brothers Band or Lynyrd Skynyrd.  Laughing, they told us they’d choose the Allman Brothers, not just because they love their music, though. The reason is all the people who ask Prophets and Outlaws to play “Free Bird” during their shows!  It is over 8 minutes long, you know!

 

The guys have a real sense of fun, so the Corner was full of laughter as well as great music.  We heard their new song “Shine On Me” – this one just makes you feel good! Check these guys out at www.prophetsandoutlaws.com.

 

AFTERBURNER

Get well wishes to Dusty Hill, ZZ Top’s incredible bassist who fell and injured his hip on the tour bus the other day.  Several dates have been cancelled.  The show with ZZ Top and Jeff Beck in Houston may be rescheduled, so hold on to your ticket stub. 

 

WON’T YOU BE OUR FRIEND?
