Cameran Nelson | 8:15 p.m.
Fuse Texas Country grit with down-home rock n’ roll and you get Cameran Nelson, a true Texas Troubadour whose roots run deep across 1,815 miles of the Lone Star State from Haskell, Texas where he was born to living South of Kingsville, East of Rockwall, West of Lubbock and now settled in the hill country town of Blanco.
Nelson released his first full length album in 2013 entitled “Happy to Beer” and was nominated for three Texas Music Awards: Male Vocalist, Rising Star, and Record of the Year. Following the charted success with singles, “Thrown”, “Happy to Beer”, and “Reckless in Texas,” Nelson landed his first [multi-week] #1 on the Texas Regional Radio Report and the Texas Music Chart with “35 Runs Both Ways.” His current project, “Good Thing Going”, has earned him two more #1 hits with “SHOTGUN” and “You Can Still Wear White.”
Mark Wills | 9:40 p.m.
The Reader’s Digest version of Mark Wills’ story makes it clear he’s an award-winning singer’s singer. His matchless phrasing, passionate and meaningful delivery and right-on-the money vocals make each and every song he performs come alive. Like a picture perfect painting, Wills’ music is a vocal work of art that walks right off the canvas and into the hearts of country music lovers alike.
His list of accolades is his testament. Mark Wills is a multi-platinum selling country music star with eight top 10 hits to his name including “19 Somethin’,” “Wish You Were Here” and “Don’t Laugh At Me;” all of which received nominations for Single, Song and Video of the Year by the Country Music Association. Wills won the Academy of Country Music ‘s award for Top New Male Vocalist in 1998. In 2002, his single “19 Something” spent six consecutive weeks at No. 1, was Billboard’s top country hit of the year and was the second most-played song of the decade in 2009.
Since garnering his Top New Male Vocalist recognition in 1998, Wills has become a staple in country music, like salt and pepper on a table; the chapters may have changed, but the story continues. The father of two daughters, a husband and the head of household, Mark’s role in life and music are one in the same.
“I think I’m at a point where I’ve seen all sides of me! I’ve become more aware of who I am not only as an artist, but as a father, a husband and a friend…and as a dad, I want to put out music my children can listen to; all in all, I take more ownership in it.”

SATURDAY NIGHT LINEUP:
Kimberly Dunn | 5:45 p.m.
Dunn has opened shows for Granger Smith, as well as Kyle Park and Aaron Watson. She also guests with Wichita Falls singer Johnny Cooper on his next single “Movin’ On,” soon to be released to Texas Country charts.
“When you think about how far Kimberly has come in just a year from her first gig, you realize that, yes, musical talent has a lot to do with it,” says Willson. “But it’s also because Kimberly is so much fun, such a force of nature. People want to be around her.”
Zane Williams | 7:o0 p.m.
Zane is an anomaly in today’s country music….a modern-day “throwback” who is equal parts bar-room entertainer and introspective poet. If you ask the crowd of Zaniacs at a show just what they love so much about the man and his music, they might tell you it’s his genuine smile, or the way his songs seem to come straight from the heart, or how he sings about real life in a way that real people can relate to. For all these reasons and more, they keep coming back time and time again to get lost in the music and experience together just what it means to be “Texas Like That.”
Soul Track Mind | 8:15 pm
When Donovan Keith moved to Austin in 2008 to form Soul Track Mind, he couldn’t read music or play an instrument, and he’d never fronted a band. In fact, he’d never even sung in one. But within a few months after he met self-taught guitarist Jonathon Zemek, Soul Track Mind had a regular Wednesday-night gig at an East Austin speakeasy, where they quickly earned a following while honing their energized mix of R&B, funk, pop, rock and blues. Eighteen months later, Soul Track Mind released their first album, Ghost of Soul, and earned mention in a New York Times magazine story about soul music’s revival.
Accolades continued as they built audiences in 20 states (with airplay internationally) and recorded in the same Muscle Shoals, Ala., studio as their heroes had. Earl Thomas, the blues/soul singer who encouraged Keith to pursue his dream after hearing some vocal tracks Keith had sent him, also encouraged the band to stretch beyond their original retro-soul foundation to find their own groove. Their self-titled second album moved in that direction — and drew praise from the Huffington Post, which enthused, “Soul Track Mind’s performances are not just stylish [horn] solos and blurry guitar riffs; they are a cultural exclamation point about American music.”
Kyle Park | 9:40 p.m.
Kyle Parks new album, The Blue Roof Sessions were as organic as sessions can be. Writing, tracking, tweaking and finally nailing it: The steps overlapped, each one energizing the others. This process also helped focus the album as the band moved forward.
“I figured I’d have 17 or 18 songs and I’d hopefully keep 12,” Park says. “Some of the ones that didn’t make the cut were really great songs but it just became clear that they didn’t fit the feel of this record. For example, I put horns on two songs. They turned out really cool but they would have been out of place. So I’ll just put them on the next record.”
The result is a milestone in Park’s catalog. For the first time, he lets his love for rootsy rock breathe through his music. Thundering drums kick off “Drive You,” a desperate elegy to love lost. There’s a swaggering Stones quality to “What Goes Around Comes Around.” The power riffs, searing guitar and vocal breaks of “One of These Days” sprinkle dashes of Led Zeppelin, Jonathan Tyler and the Northern Lights and Audioslave to this Southern country/rock stew. He even covers Billy Squier’s 1984 smash, “Rock Me Tonite.” (“If I had turned that song around with twin fiddles, it could have been a great country song,” he enthuses.)
None of this obscures Park’s love for country music. Born and raised outside of Austin, he started playing country venues when he was just 15. Since then, his singles have regularly settled in the Texas Music Chart’s Top 10, with his 2013 single “The Night Is Young” reaching No. 1. His Fall EP peaking at No. 1 in 2010 on the Billboard Heatseekers South Central list. He has also performed in Europe, and has opened for artists such as George Strait, Gary Allan, Clint Black, Eli Young Band and other country headliners.
