Anyone who's heard Bart Crow perform knows that when the "road-toughened troubador" and his band show up, there's going to be a good time in store. Crow, who Rolling Stone magazine singled out as one of 10 New Country Artists You Need to Know, plays more than 130 dates a year in front of loyal, rowdy audiences in honky tonks and concert halls all across Texas, the Southwest and beyond.
Now, the Austin-based Texas country star is coming to Houston as the headliner at The Big Texas Party.
Crow's brand of music fits right in with theme of the Texas-sized soiree, which highlights barbecue from 10 top Houston pitmasters, beer, bourbon and the hospitality that Houston — and all of the Lone Star State — is known for. In a sign that we all can get along, former Dallas Cowboys stars Ed "Too Tall" Jones and Randy White will team up with former Houston Oilers greats Mike Barber, Gregg Bingham, and Cris Dishman to host the party at Silver Street Studios on February 2, a few days before Super Bowl LI kicks off.
Other sports stars expected to attend the party, sponsored by CultureMap, ESPN Radio, and SB Nation, include Jamaal Charles, T.J. Glover, Elvin Hayes, Travis Johnson, Ryan Leaf, Keenan McCardell, Gerome Sapp, Damion Square, Henry Thomas, Eric Warfield, Ricky Williams, and Roy Williams.
Crow has had six No. 1 singles on the Texas Music Chart, including "Wear My Ring," which has been viewed 3.9 million times on YouTube, and “Life Comes At You Fast.” Other hits include "Run With The Devil," "Little Bit of Luck," and "Dandelion." Crow, whose hometown is tiny Maypearl, Texas (population 934), realized his dream in 2015 when he debuted at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville.
