Deep Blue Something
Saturday, January 18, 2020

It’s been a while since the worldwide success of the Home album and the singles “Breakfast at Tiffany’s,”

“Halo,” and “Josey,” but Deep Blue Something reconvened in 2016 to record the Locust House EP. It has been expanded into a full-length album, and the excitement after a few shows has grown into a genuine desire to hit the road again.

It certainly doesn’t hurt that a whole new generation of fans has embraced the band due to their inclusion in popular films and T.V. series. In one six-month period during 2018, the band’s Spotify listeners went from 200,000 to over a million, and this total continues to grow. Deep Blue Something’s current monthly listenership is 1.75 million and counting.

Gary P. Nunn
Saturday, February 15, 2020
Gary P. Nunn has been taking Texas to the country and Texas country to the world for some 40 years now, establishing himself as an icon of Lone Star music. A founding father of the progressive country movement out of Austin in the 1970s that changed the face of popular music, Nunn is also an independent music pioneer who continues to oversee his own record label and song publishing companies, manage his own career (with the help of his wife Ruth), and play most every weekend at top music venues throughout Texas and beyond. His composition “London Homesick Blues” — with its internationally known “I wanna go home with the Armadillo” chorus — is a signature Texas country song that was the theme for the PBS concert TV show “Austin City Limits” for nearly three decades.

After almost 50 years of making music and two million miles of travel across Texas, Nunn plans to retire at the end of 2020.

Sunny Sweeney
Saturday, March 21, 2020
Sunny Sweeney is the party and the morning after. She’s the quip that makes people laugh and the truth that makes people cry, the devil that’s egging people on and the angel whispering that people aren’t alone. But those compelling contradictions aren’t what’s most interesting about Sweeney: it’s the depth and brazen authenticity she brings to all her roles that grabs people and won’t let go.

Sweeney’s salty wisdom and Texas-hewn soprano have never sounded stronger than they do on her latest release, Trophy. The wit and honesty that have always defined her stone-cold country have blossomed into confessional, complex songwriting for grown-ups, still whiskey-drenched and honky-tonk-ready. Drugs, death, the ex-wife, drinking, devotion, and longing for a child: it’s all here, raw and real.

The mastery of holes in the wall, major label stint, and serious songwriting chops make Sweeney something of a rarity: an artist with barroom cred, mainstream validation, and songs meaty enough for listening rooms. Or, as Rolling Stone put it in September 2016: “Sweeney is one of the rare entertainers who can hold her own at CMA Fest as well as AmericanaFest.”

Sarah Jaffe
April 11, 2020

North Texas-based singer/songwriter Sarah Jaffe has worked across multiple musical genres spanning folk, synth pop, and indie rock. She most recently performed in Lewisville as part of the city’s 50th Anniversary Texas International Pop Festival.

Flaco Jiménez with Los Texmaniacs
May 16, 2020

Grammy Award winning Los Texmaniacs is quick to point out that Cruzando Borders, the band’s third album for Smithsonian Folkways, is more than music; it was crafted to send a message. Prompted by negative public rhetoric about the U.S.–Mexican border and Mexican culture and inspired by the transcendent brotherhood and exquisite beauty of the border life they have experienced, Los Texmaniacs have created an album that asserts pride in both their native Mexican culture and U.S. nationhood. The recording features all-star guest appearances from country legends Lyle Lovett and Rick Treviño, is a “vital heartbeat for a group of folks who truly have one foot on either side of the border” (NPR Music) and was nominated for the “Best Regional Mexican Music Album (Including Tejano)” Grammy award.

Los TexManiacs are honored to perform with legendary five-time Grammy-winning artist, Flaco Jiménez, whose six-decade career has taken his accordion-fueled TexMex sound to a larger audience than any other conjunto or Tejano artist.

Jimmie Vaughan
Saturday, June 20, 2020

When it comes to the blues today, there are a handful of guiding lights to make sure the music stays true to its powerful source. The sound of pleasure and pain that first sparked musicians to create such a sound is a force that can never be underestimated. The mojo has to be there. For Jimmie Vaughan, he's dedicated his life to making sure the blues not only stays alive but remains full of life and an inspiration to all who listen. It's a spirit he holds close to him, and for over 50 years of holding the blues close inside him, Vaughan isn't about to stop now.
