*December 6, 2013: Casey Donahew Band

With their latest release, Moving On, The Casey Donahew Band are quickly becoming one of the hottest names in Texas country, drawing fans at home and beyond to their energetic live shows. Matt Stell opens.

  • December 7, 2013: 7th Heaven

7th Heaven has charted #1 on the Midwest Billboard Charts twice in the past two years. The band has been heard on many radio stations in Chicagoland with their hits “Better This Way” and “Sing.” Playing over 250 shows a year, 7th Heaven has been performing since the mid-’80s. Their energetic live shows mix originals and covers, including their famous “30 Songs in 30 Minutes” medley of ’70s and ’80s hits.

December 28, 2013: The Personnel

An electro-rock band hailing from Chicago, IL. Ramping up to the release of their sophomore EP, the band released their first single in nearly two years, “Naïve.” Their Borrow or Steal EP shows a band poised to leap forward. A mix of etherial synthesizers, glassy guitars, and driving rhythms, this new batch of songs is equal parts earnest, equal parts catchy.


January 3, 2013: Maggie Rose*

Cool and confident, yet warm and approachable with a laugh that’s as melodic as the songs she sings, it’s difficult to look at Maggie Rose and not think that she was born under a very special star. And maybe she was. How else can you explain her journey from Potomac, Maryland — hardly a mecca for country music — to Nashville by way of storied record executiveTommy Mottola (Celine Dion, Mariah Carey)?

January 11, 2013: Josh Abbott Band

Weeks before its Valentine’s Day release on iTunes, the Josh Abbott Band’s “Touch” was already well on its way toward being one of the most talked-about songs in Texas music of 2012. Granted, the hot-streak momentum of Abbott’s career had a lot to do with that. In the wake of the breakout success of “Oh, Tonight” (which climbed to No. 44 on Billboard’s country chart) and the title track from 2010’s regional smash “She’s Like Texas,” created a stir that reached all the way to music executives in Nashville and New York City. With opening act Whiskey Myers.*
