Dale Watson

Presented by ACDI

Dale Watson, keeper of the true country music flame, latest album Call Me Insane, was recorded in Austin with veteran producer Lloyd Maines.

The Austin-based honky-tonker carries on in the tradition of Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson with his “Ameripolitan” brand of American roots music.

Album highlights include “Jonesin’ For Jones,” a love song to the music of the legendary George Jones, “A Day At A Time,” about “getting by by barely getting by;” “Call Me Insane,” the album’s moody title track; “Bug Ya For Love,” a fun warning to all the single ladies, and “Mamas Don’t Let Your Cowboys Grow Up To Be Babies.” (Yes, it is an answer song to the Waylon Jennings/Willie Nelson hit.) “Crocodile Tears” is a tear-in-your-beer country song that sounds like an instant classic and “Burden Of The Cross” reveals Watson’s serious side.

The Decades Band

‘The Decades’ is a duo cover band featuring Vocalist Diane Tropea and Guitarist Don Hubbard. They both live, work and perform live music in the Austin area. The band was formed in late 2016 shortly after a chance meeting while Don was performing solo. After a trial studio session it was obvious there was great synergy and a match in their musical tastes, styles and goals. Diane has been singing since early childhood and did some LA touring during her college days. Don has been playing clarinet, acoustic guitar, and guitar synth for decades. Through a careful blending of acoustic guitar sounds and guitar synthesizer produced instruments, any particular song may feature a Trombone, Sax, Clarinet, Rock-Organ, Piano, Flute, or Vibes, whatever the song requires. The result is a big band sound but with the simplicity of a duo band.


The Ransom Brothers

There’s no mistaking Austin band the Ransom Brothers’ major musical influence; those slide and twinned guitar riffs, fierce fiddle solos and bluesy, soul-infused melodies pay proud homage to the Allman Brothers, Marshall Tucker Band and other ’70s Southern rockers, though the band also pledges allegiance to red dirt, outlaw and outlier country, jam bands.

But it’s definitely their own musical chops and songwriting skills on display in each track of their debut album, Resurgence.

“Our goal has always been to be ourselves and write and play what inspires us,” says lead singer and guitarist Sean McHargue, who formed the band with fellow Texas State University graduate Daniel “Sal” Solis (guitars, mandolin). They were a duo when they came up with the name, inspired by Jimmy Stewart’s character in The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance, but have since added bassist Phil Eckhardt, drummer Aaron English, fiddler John Thomas and keyboardist James Rodman.


Morgan Ashley

Hailing from College Station, Morgan Ashley grew up raising cattle and barrel racing. She decided at age 17 to finally pick up the guitar that sat in the corner of her room for years and hasn’t put it down since! The Texas Music bug hit hard, and she knew that she belonged on a stage somewhere in Texas, playing the music she grew up loving and introducing her fans to her own unique brand.
Strong vocals mixed with witty lyricism over an ice-cold country tune adds up to be the perfect recipe for a Morgan Ashley song! Morgan currently plays 150+ dates per year at venues across Texas and beyond. Along with the successful release of her projects over the last four years, Morgan has had five successfully charted songs to Texas Radio at Top 40 or higher and her all time Spotify streams are over 75,000! She also just won the 2021 New Female Vocalist Award with the Texas Regional Radio Music Awards!

Morgan hopes to continue releasing music that channels everyone’s wild side and to continue connecting with more and more fans along the way!
