Are You Ready for the TXM Summer Concert Series?
This is a concert that you don’t want to miss. It’s Stoney LaRue LIVE on the outdoor stage at the Cannery!
Born in Taft, Texas, LaRue was raised in Yanush/Buffalo Valley, Oklahoma where he still visits regularly and began playing country music at a young age.
LaRue moved to Stillwater, Oklahoma, and began to play in the various bars around the college town, as well as his brother, Bo Phillips. He befriended Jason Boland and Cody Canada and the three moved into the infamous “Yellow House” where they would have late night jam sessions and entertain other various musicians around the town, like Mike McClure and Brandon Jenkins. LaRue was heavily influenced by Woody Guthrie, Bob Childers, and the “Red Dirt” music scene.
Also performing is San Antonio-born Mike Ryan is set to enter the next phase of his career with the release of “New Hometown,” the lead single from his forthcoming album. Ryan set the bar quite high with the release of his last album Bad Reputation, in 2014, which featured a trio of number one singles on the Texas Music Charts. Ryan says he is more than excited to give his fans new music.
With the release of his forthcoming new album, Ryan is hoping to make more music that his Texas audience loves, but he also wants to take his music all the way around the world. “I consider myself very fortunate to have the support from Texans that we do. We’ve actually been playing in the surrounding states for the past couple of years, and we’re getting further and further away from home all the time. I just want to keep making music that I am proud of and that I believe in. Texas has a lot of great fans, and I know the rest of the United States does as well. I’m ready to take it to them!”
The Powell Brothers are Country/Americana recording artists from Houston, Texas.
The group is fronted by brothers Taylor Powell (lead vocals) and Blake Powell (lead guitar). The Powell Brothers are currently promoting their latest single, “Coming Home,” a love letter to their hometown of Houston that addresses life on the road and missing home. The single is the first in a long line of new music to come, as the band is set to release their first full-length album in the Fall of 2018.
