Guitar great and Texas music legend Junior Brown is coming to Abilene, headlining second night of the Swingin’ Tex-Fest at the Taylor County Expo Center. The event, to benefit the Ben Richey Boys Ranch, takes place August 24th and 25th.

Brown, well known for his custom-made “guit-steel” guitar (a 6-string guitar/steel hybrid) plays a brand of music that is as unique as the instrument he invented. With all the roots and influence of country music and the energy and spirit of rock and roll, Junior Brown will show you a live performance like you’ve never seen before. This singer, songwriter and instrumentalist will bring a smile to music lovers of all ages.

In his career, Brown has released 9 studio albums, plus his 2005 CD “Live at the Continental Club: The Austin Experience”. He’s been featured on movies and television, including “Me, Myself and Irene” and “Sponge Bob Square Pants” (he sings with Sandy, the squirrel from Texas), and is the narrator in the 2005 big screen remake of “The Dukes Of Hazzard“.

Here’s Junior Brown’s video for his 1993 song “Highway Patrol”:

Also playing at Swingin’ Tex-Fest will be Jody Nix, Curtis Porter and Kelly Spinks (Friday, August 24th), with Mark Powell and Lariat and Bobby Flores will take the stage Saturday, August 25th with Brown.
