Boot Rock Boys
If a group with a name like ”The Boot Rock Boys” sounds as if it promises the best in music variety, you’re right! Whether it’s a country classic swing song, some hybrid country rock tune that is hooting and hollering its way up the charts, or just some good down home classic rock and roll, The Boot Rock Boys are undeniably hot. This rugged six-member band of musicians have a good time turning out music that is honest, and upfront, with a unique style and sound that’s all their own. Their trademark is a variety of harmony vocals, with a sax and mandolin twist. Top that with hot harmonica and guitar leads, split-second timing, and overall superb musicianship blending these outstanding talents and you have a unique single musical unit that creates music from the soil and the soul.

MAIN STREET STAGE 8-10pm | DALE WATSON
Dale Watson is a honky tonk hero and country music maverick, a true outlaw carrying on where Waylon Jennings left off. A member of the Austin Music Hall of Fame, he stands alongside Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, and George Strait as one of the finest country singers and songwriters from the Lone Star State.
Dale signed with Red House Records in 2011 to release his 20th album called The Sun Sessions. Hailed as “one of the best country albums of the year” (Atlanta Journal Constitution), it was recorded at Memphis’ legendary Sun Studios with The Texas Two (bassist Chris Crepps and drummer Mike Bernal) in the stripped-down style of Johnny Cash’s earliest recordings. He followed this with El Rancho Azul, 14 fresh honky tonk originals about marriage, heartbreak and honkytonkin, which propelled Dale into the national spotlight with multiple appearances on late-night television and NPR.
