JULY 3RD

INDEPENDENCE DAY SPECTACULAR

Join us at Liberty Hill’s Independence Day Spectacular to celebrate our freedom!

Neighbors and friends will gather at Liberty Hill Junior High on July 3rd to celebrate freedom in the most patriotic way. Residents engage in friendly competition for the coveted blue ribbon in challenges like the Homemade Apple Pie contest, Homemade Ice Cream contest, Watermelon Seed Spitting contest and the Hot Dog Eating contest. Children play in the Radical Run Obstacle Course, ride the trackless train and jump on the Velcro wall.

The activities pause mid-evening for the Beach Ball Drop. Thousands of hands raise in the air as children try to catch one of the hundreds of beach balls that fall from the sky, just before the headliner band kicks off.

The evening’s festivities conclude with a spectacular  fireworks show.

LIVE MUSIC

FORCE CLOSE
Caleb Young Band | 6-7pm

Caleb Young Band

Most country artists strive to fit a specific mold, the Caleb Young Band aims to break it. With genre bending songs and honest lyrics the CYB looks to push the boundaries of what most people consider the norm for country music. The Caleb Young Band combines soaring vocals, burning guitar leads, rocking rhythms and melodic pedal steel to create a sound that is both unique and fresh.

Formed in 2015 by Caleb Young and guitarist Austin Grigry, the duo quickly recruited some of the best talent the local scene had to offer in order to round out the band. Hailing from the Permian Basin area of West Texas, these members include Lilo Hernandez on drums, Will Doroteo on bass and Timmy Neves on pedal steel and electric guitar.

After honing their craft playing in dives across Texas the group entered Orb Studios to record their debut single “Long Road Home.” This single helped establish the CYB as a band that is not adherent to the industry standards. “We did exactly what we felt we needed to do with that song, it might not fit in any specific genre but its who we are as a band” says Caleb Young. The group soon returned to the studio to track their second single; a piano driven power ballad called “Friend for Tonight.” Guitarist Austin Grigry says “With Friend for Tonight we wanted to do almost the opposite of Long Road Home. Something that was completely different, epic in scope but could still compliment Long Road Home nicely.”

The CYB has been working hard to take their energetic live show across the great state of Texas from cities such as Corpus Christi, Houston, and Dallas to small towns like Pecos, Alpine and Snyder. The group has recently finished tracking their debut EP, “Down in Flames” due to release Spring of 2021. With the unapologetic sound you would come to expect from the band, the group hopes to continue to make its mark in the Country music scene for years to come.

Stoney LaRue | 8-9:40pm

Stoney LaRue

For nearly two decades Stoney LaRue has sustained a seminal music career that was dug straight out of the red dirt in Oklahoma. His rock infused country “tude” coupled with a dominating set of vocal pipes quickly identified him as a rising star. 20 years later, LaRue has “been there” and “done that” in almost every facet of the music hemisphere.

Sold out shows in a continuous 200 plus dates a year tour schedule, high charting albums on Billboard, iTunes and the Texas Regional Radio Chart, featured videos on CMT, over 1 million albums and singles sold, guest vocal performances on songs by Lee Ann Womack and Miranda Lambert, shared stages with some of the biggest names in country music and a most coveted debut performance at Nashville’s renowned Grand Ole Opry.
