Ready to join the next Revolution? Texas Music Revolution, a two-day drive-in music festival, invites you to come out and join the fun at Southfork Ranch for a two day party July 31-Aug. 1. This is your chance to see some of the Lone Star State’s most exciting and iconic acts in a live musical concert. The music festival is presented by KHYI “The Ranch” Radio Station.

The Friday concert kicks off at 5 p.m. with John Earle Mainord, followed by Big Gus & Swampadelic. At 6:30 p.m., Matt & Jordan of 1100 Springs perform. Next up is Walt Wilkins, who’s followed by Chris Knight from 9:05-10:15 p.m. Knight’s ninth album, “Almost Daylight,” received high praise by critics around the country for its vivid imagery. Knight writes moving portraits of rural characters like those he knew growing up in Kentucky.

Texas Music Revolution Saturday Lineup

The August 1st lineup includes Nikki Lane, a Nashville singer/songwriter whose third album, “Highway Queen,” won both critical praise and hordes of new fans following its 2017 release. Legendary country music singer/songwriter Ray Wylie Hubbard (whose first song, “Up Against the Wall You Rednecked Mother,” was recorded by Jerry Jeff Walker in the 1970’s, is still writing great music, recording, and performing. Hubbard’s latest album, “Tell the Devil I’m Getting There as Fast as I Can,” was released in 2017. Also on the Friday night lineup are Dallas singer/songwriter Joshua Ray Walker, the Ottoman Turks, and Squeezebox Bandits.

Previous Texas Revolution headliner Lukas Nelson is quarantining with his dad “out of an abundance of caution” and is unable to participate this year. Some of the most popular Range artists, like Friday night’s headliner Chris Knight, will appear at this year’s Revolution. Saturday night features co-headliners Nikki Lane and Ray Wylie Hubbard.
