The Best of Country Music Travel - 2019
With a love of Texas country music that’s as big as the state itself, nobody understands the Texas Country Music Cruise better than Cynthia. She knows it’s a hankering for country music that’s brought you onboard.
And she’s organized a lineup sure to satisfy. From top names like Pat Green and Bart Crow to Bri Bagwell and Randall King, get ready to hear all of your favorite show-stopping hits while sailing the high seas.
What does Cynthia love about each of these performers? She has plenty to say when it comes to great Texas country music and why you’ll love this year’s lineup.
Pat Green will be headlining the cruise leaving Galveston on September 29th. He’s recorded 10 studio albums, and 15 of his singles have topped the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts including “Wave on Wave” whose album went gold.
Headlining the cruise finale will be none other than Bart Crow, and Cynthia couldn’t be more excited.
Bart hails from Austin, the hub of all Red Dirt and Texas country music, and credits Gram Parsons, The Beatles, and Elvis as his major musical influences.
After years of touring with his band, this blue-collar balladeer has chiseled a solid foothold in the edifice of Americana music.
His hits include “Wear My Ring” with more than 165,000 copies sold. His album Dandelion hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Heatseekers South Central chart.
More Artists to Satisfy Your Country Cravings
Besides theses headliners, Cynthia knows you’re going to fall in love with some of the rising stars on the cruise. Two of these breakout artists are Bri Bagwell and Randall King.
Bri Bagwell has been chasing her country music dreams since the age of 14 when she started singing in her twin brother’s band. She’s come a long way in 15 years as evidenced by her latest album In My Defense.
Songs such as “Asphalt & Concrete” and “If You Were a Cowboy” are set to haunting, echoey guitars that amplify her soaring vocals. What’s more, she’s a powerhouse on stage, both flirting with and embodying her carefully crafted lyrics.
To satisfy your craving for honest Southern music, Cynthia says look no further than Randall King. Raised on the soulful, rich stylings of country legends like Alan Jackson, Keith Whitley, and George Strait, they shine through in his honest songs.
But the list of Texas country artists doesn’t stop there. From the Dirty River Boys to Glen Templeton and so many more, get ready for the musical adventure of a lifetime. Check out the full Red Dirt music lineup.
