William Clark Green has been a top contender on my Texas Country list for a while. I love his shows but he seems to just magically appear around Fort Worth. A couple of weeks ago, I just happened to see his name pop up again to open for The Josh Abbott Band at Billy Bob’s, even though he wasn’t listed on their website. Sneaky, sneaky!
Then, I just happened to get free tickets to see the show, at the last minute.
The tickets just happened to be reserved seating, front row, dead center.
If I got any closer I would’ve been hugging the man on stage. Not saying I would’ve had a problem with that…
William Clark Green is amazing live. Ah hell, I’ll just let you have a listen for yourself. You’ve heard me praise him before.
Then there’s this one with Josh Abbott (who was having a ton of fun onstage) – I was one happy girl to hear this song! LOVE!
The Josh Abbott Band on the other hand. Well, the man is amazing or should I say band. He is one of the few performers who was scheduled for two nights in a row at Billy Bob’s – it’s rare. The place was packed. There was a lot of folks with a good taste in music. JAB may be more widely known due to the songs that he writes. They’re trying to bring attention to causes that the majority may over look. His most recent release, She Will Be Free, brings attention to sex traffic crisis in the US – it’s more prevalent than most think. Check out the video.
This is one of my all time favorite Texas Country songs… makes me just wanna two-step!
This turned out to be one of the best shows I’ve been to in a while. Maybe it was the fact that we were so close. Perhaps it was because they were so personable. Good company adds to the mix (and good beer). Texas music – doesn’t get much better! If you have a chance to check out either of these guys (or purchase their album) – I highly recommend it!
