Horseshoe Bay Resort welcomes Pat Green on Saturday, July 29th as the featured headliner at the 5th Annual Beer by the Bay Music Festival with a scheduled performance starting at 9:30 p.m. After rising through Texas’s college-town dance hall scene years ago, Green earned himself major-label support in Nashville and became the poster child of Texas Music for a whole generation of fans. His list of achievements include over 2 million albums sold, three Grammy Nominations and a sold out Houston Astrodome.
But after releasing six albums in eight years, sending singles like “Wave on Wave” and “Let Me” up the charts, touring with powerhouses like Kenny Chesney and Keith Urban and dealing with accusations of “selling out,” the meat grinder of of mainstream stardom proved to be too much. He was spent.
Now, after breaking the cylce for a three-year recharge, Green is back in his comfort zone and playing by his own rules again. His new independent album Home is his first set of originals in several years, and speaks to to hardcore fans that have been with him since the beginning.
The album’s first single, “Girls from Texas,” is a prime example, and also features the first of the albums stellar guest appearances. A sugary, grown-up lullaby that explains why Texas girls are just a little bit better than the rest, the track spent 10 weeks on top of the Texas Music Chart. Green calls recording the song face-to-face with Lyle Lovett a highlight of the whole project.
Mainstream country may have changed, but Green is back in his groove, back to loving and making music on his own terms and happier than ever. And that’s a recipe for a comeback of epic proportions.Book Now More Events
