Shane Smith and the Saints – 8:30pm

Shortly after Terrell native Shane Smith moved to East Texas to play tennis, he transferred to St. Edwards in Austin and began playing music, eventually forming Shane Smith & The Saints. Ten years later, the road warrior Americana band features fiddle, electric lead guitar, a stout rhythm section and four-part harmonies and plays around 200 shows a year on the Red Dirt/Texas Country circuit as well as a tour of Ireland. Their third album, “Hail Mary” (summer 2019) crosses “the gritty, blue-collar storytelling of Bruce Springsteen with the singsong hooks of Mumford & Sons.” “I don’t like just throwing stuff out there,” said Smith. “If I’m going to be singing about something every night, I try to make it personal, make it something I can really relate to. I like to sing with conviction, an honest conviction.” His voice and the band’s sound is unmistakable. The scrappy, talented Shane Smith & The Saints makes fans wherever they perform and will appeal to listeners, partiers and dancers of all ages. 

Erick Willis – 6:30pm

Henrietta native showcasing a smooth voice with an excellent upper register, uniquely gravely at times, and always pleasant to the ear, Erick is bringing lots of soul to the mix, along with undeniably Texas inspired lyrics.
