The Dallas – Fort Worth area has SO much to offer. Sometimes, it’s hard to forget what’s in our own backyards or maybe we just can’t fit it all into one weekend. This area has so many great opportunities and adventures, it’s hard to narrow them down when we have friends/family coming into the area. Frankly, I just tell them to come back for more!
This weekend, there will be two more Vermonter’s in town to join in the fun! I’ve put together a list of my top “to do’s” in the area!
What’s on your list when friends and/or family come into town? Do you have any favorites?
Sunday, April 13th – Reds Roadhouse in Kennedale, Texas held the Texas Red Dirt Roads radio show. The guests were Cody Canada, Courtney Patton and Jason Eady. As always, what a great time.
If you’re into the best music around, great company and a comfortable atmosphere, this is your kind of event. Each Sunday from 3-6pm, tune in or better yet just show up and spend the afternoon in one of the best ways one can.
Courtney Patton started off the show. If you haven’t heard her, just go ahead and buy a few tunes off iTunes. No need to YouTube. Trust me. ‘Twisted’ is a favorite. Her voice sounds so familiar, that she’s speaking to you, comforting, forgiving, understanding.
And then there’s Jason Eady. Do the same – just go ahead, purchase a few songs. Heck just get the album! ‘Cry Pretty’ – this one should sound familiar. An Air Force veteran, a proclaimed songwriter. Texas should be blessed to have this Mississippi fella!
Did I mention these two are married?!
Then there’s the most popular out of the three (sorry there Courtney and Jason) – Cody Canada. Perhaps you recognize his name from Cross Canadian Ragweed or Cody Canada and the Departed. Lucky for the attendees (and the radio listeners) we were in for a treat at this show. Not only did we get to listen to Cody Canada solo, we also got his two best right hand men to help him on stage, his boys! They did such a great job (and there’s definitely no stage fright in sight).
As Justin Frazell would say “See ya down the road!”
Who is your favorite Texas Country artist(s)?
Each day in 2014, I am taking a photo. There is no telling what the photo will be or where the “inspiration” will come from. All photos are taken either with my Nikon D5100 or the iPhone (for those times on the go). Come back each Friday for a complete compilation of the past seven days and link to join / view others as part of the 365 projects!
This week: I missed two days and I didn’t even realize it until now. I hope you can at least enjoy some of the shots that I did grab! Have a great week!
