More than 3,700 people invaded the square in Downtown Tyler for the first-ever -- and completely sold out -- Red Dirt BBQ & Music Festival last May.

It's happening again Saturday, May 2, and the festival is gearing up to spill all its secrets.

Starting Monday, Feb. 9, Red Dirt BBQ & Music Festival and KNUE are teaming up to announce not only its lineup of Texas' best barbecue restaurants, but also a music act each day for five days.

The first band will be announced Monday, with the headliner announced Friday, Feb. 13.

You'll get your first chance to know the bands when our morning show, Big D and Bubba, announces our lineup at 7:20 a.m. each morning on 101.5 KNUE. So, be sure to grab that radio, listen right here on or download the RadioPup app and listen live through your phone.

If you can't listen, be sure and like Red Dirt's Facebook page and follow the festival on Twitter to keep up with all the announcements. Each band will also be added every day next week after Red Dirt's website relaunches Feb. 9.

The first-ever Red Dirt BBQ & Music Festival featured 14 of the best barbecue restaurants from all over the state, plus a music lineup that featured The Bigsbys, Green River Ordinance, Whiskey Myers and Randy Rogers Band.

To let you in on a secret: there will be more restaurants and more bands in 2015.

And it gets even better. Next week we're teaming up with our friends at East Texas Professional Credit Union to give you the chance to win two VIP tickets to the festival before they go on sale on, so stay tuned for more details.

Tickets for Red Dirt BBQ & Music Festival, presented by Tyler Ford, go on sale at 10 a.m. Monday, Feb. 16 on the festival's website.
