KHYI Vice President and General Manager Josh Jones described how over the past 20 years TMR has become one of the largest events of its kind in the nation, but that the move to Plano is a welcome change. “We needed a little bit of fresh air, both metaphorically and literally, so I cannot tell you how excited we are to be going to Oak Point Park and Oak Point Amphitheater and to be partnering up with the City of Plano. This is going to be, I think, the single biggest event in Texas Music Revolution history.”

Steven described how excited Toyota was to be partnering with KHYI and the city to present this music festival. He followed up by saying, “Being a good corporate citizen means more than building an environmentally sensitive campus or creating jobs, which is what we’re doing, but it also means working with great partners like The Range and like the City of Plano to create great experiences for everyone in the community to come together and share.”
