This March KHYI 95.3 The Range presents a North Texas tradition, the 23rd annual Texas Music Revolution (TMR). The music festival will be held Friday and Saturday, March 29 and 30 at Plano’s Oak Point Amphitheater, recently renamed Red Tail Amphitheater.

For almost a quarter of a century KHYI radio and General Manager Joshua Jones have brought the best of Texas country and Americana music to DFW with the signature music fest. Entertainers who’ve graced the TMR stage represent a wide variety of music, from local boys The O’s and Zane Williams to national headliners Margo Price, Stoney Larue and Kiefer Sutherland.

This year’s lineup looks as solid as years before. Friday night’s headliner is guitar virtuoso Junior Brown who will be bringing along his “guit-steel,” a double neck guitar of his own creation. The top neck is a traditional electric guitar, while the bottom neck is a lap steel guitar played with a slide. Other Friday night performers include Max Stalling and Big Gus & Swampadelic.

Saturday’s headliners are Texas troubadour Robert Earl Keen and songbird LeeAnn Womack. Keen has recorded 12 albums and had his songs covered by The Dixie Chicks, George Strait, Joe Ely, the Highwaymen and Lyle Lovett. Womack returns to the TMR stage to perform “I Hope You Dance” and other favorites. Arizona’s Roger Clyne and The Peacemakers, originally known as The Refreshments, will also perform Saturday, along with Vincent Neil Emerson, Jaime Wyatt and Zane Williams.

What’s that about a rodeo, you ask? Between performances Saturday check out TMR’s first ever bull riding competition presented by Chute 2 Productions.

Tickets start at $12.50 for Friday night only, and go up to $149 for the full weekend VIP experience, which includes access to VIP seating, parking, restrooms and cash bar, plus a 25 percent merchandise discount.

For a festival that’s hosted such names as Ryan Bingham and recent Grammy winner Kacey Musgraves, what could possibly happen to make 2019 one for the books? For Josh, it’s simple: “If the City of Plano is happy and the festival creates a great memory for the attendees, we’re successful.”
