    It’s been about 2 decades since Texas country legend, Jerry Jeff Walker played a full set in Nashville. Jerry is known for his monumental role in the 60’s & 70’s Country music scene. Jerry Jeff is also known for bucking the system by walking away from the “Nashville Recording Industry” in the 1980’s to start his own record label, “Tried and True Music” which falls right in line with the DIY spirit of Muddy Roots Music Events. Enjoy a full 90 minute set with all the classics.

    Another Country music legend, Bobby Bare will join us on stage bringing you all the hits. Bobby Bare has played our Muddy Roots Music Festival and was quoted saying “Now this is how it’s supposed to be done. This is how a festival should be.” We can’t tell you how honored we felt knowing Bobby was not only playing his music for us but that he felt right at home. That the music was in context to the festival climate. We’re proud to bring Ol’ Bobby to the prestigious Grand Ole Opry House stage!

    East Nashville’s very own honky tonk rounders JP Harris & Joshua Hedley represent the local sound just before Bobby Bare takes the stage.

    Deke Dickerson carries over the Nashville Boogie Vintage Weekender 50’s vibe with an all-star house band with guest appearance by Big Sandy & Billy Harlan. Billy played the Grand Ole Opry in the 1905’s playing bass for Jim Reeves and also the Wilburn brothers.

    The evening kicks off with local “Honky Tonk Tuesdays” revivalists from the American Legion Post 82, East Nashville’s very own The Cowpokes!
