KOKE-FM Welcomes the “Texas Country Kickoff” featuring Josh Abbott Band and Stoney LaRue to Cedar Park Center on Friday, February 13.
Josh Abbott Band is a Warner Music Nashville recording artist hailing from Lubbock, Texas that was formed in 2006.
Josh’s love for Texas has permeated every aspect of his songwriting, weaving authentic character-driven tales while exploring real-life issues that have shaped the Lone Star State. Joined by Preston Wait (fiddle, guitar), James Hertless (bass), Caleb Keeter (guitar), Austin Davis (banjo) and Edward Villanueva (drums), the band has quickly risen to the top of the Texas music scene and has opened for acts such as Eli Young Band, Miranda Lambert, Carrie Underwood and Pat Green.
Josh Abbott Band’s 2014 EP “Tuesday Night,” out on Atlantic Records, follows the band’s independent success, which has earned sales of more than 175,000 albums and 1.4M singles.
LaRue is a Texas native, turned long-time Oklahoma resident who has been chasing his own dream down many roads for a long time.
“I’ve always been motivated by and came up under the style of old Woody Guthrie songs,” LaRue says. “It’s always been about talking to the people.”
Hence you have the laid-back, conversational style found on Stoney LaRue’s newest album project, “Aviator,” his debut for eOne Entertainment.
Don’t be fooled…LaRue has lit up and burned down a honky-tonk a time or two, becoming a Red Dirt/Texas Music circuit mainstay known for high-energy shows, and that intensity is found on “Aviator” as well, on tracks like “It’s Too Soon”, “Golden Shackles” and an album ending “Studio A JAM” not to be missed.
