This year The East Texas State Fair added something new to the live music, TWO full days of Country Music. Country Fest continues this Saturday (Sept. 30), headlined by William Clark Green.

In 2013 Rose Queen became a true breakout project for the Flint, TX native. With it Green got his first taste of radio success (“It’s About Time” Top 10, “She Likes The Beatles” No. 1, “Rose Queen” No. 4, and “Hanging Around” No. 1). In addition Green earned high praise from the Dallas Observer, the newspaper named “She Likes the Beatles” the best song in Texas that year.

The monster that is Green’s third studio album, Ringling Road, was unleashed in April of 2015. That album has a No. 1 single in “Sympathy,” a Top 5 with “Sticks and Stones,” and the title track was another Top 10 on the Texas charts.

Oh, yeah, and last year Rolling Stone included WCG’s latest album on it’s list of “Top 35 Country Albums of 2015 That You Probably Didn’t Hear.”

Green's newest single "Still Think About You," a co-wrote with his mentor and friend, the late Kent Finlay.

Additionally we will see country performances from Jamie Richards, Dalton Domino, Mike and the Moonpies (Thursday 9/28), Kylie Rae Harris, Ray Johnston, and more.
