Texas Thunder Music Fest

In response to the recent tragedy in West, TX, Texas Thunder festival organizers have teamed up with Texas music artists to support the West, TX community.

The Texas Thunder music festival, running May 17-19 and taking place in Gardendale, Texas, will feature The Randy Rogers Band, Wade Bowen, Casey Donahew Band, Josh Abbott Band, Stoney LaRue and many more and will raise funds for those affected in the tragic explosion last Wednesday.

"For 13 years now our band has been traveling I-35 and stopping in West, TX along the way to sample the good food," said Randy Rogers. "It's become a staple on our tour. Now it's time for us to give back."

"We are disheartened by the tragedy in West, Texas. Texans are passionate about their communities and upon hearing of this tragedy, the Texas music community reached out to lend a helping hand," says event organizer Brian Andrews. "100% of net proceeds from the Texas Thunder music festival will benefit the schools and first-responders of West, Texas."

Texas Thunder presents an all-star, all-Texas lineup, with both musicians and fans coming together to help bring support to those who need it most. Weekend passes are available for a discounted price of $65 with camping starting at $110. A very limited number of single-day tickets are available for $35.

Texas Thunder tickets are now available for purchase at Graham Central Station in Odessa, Rockin' Rodeo in Midland and Arriba Midland. For more information or to purchase tickets and camping, please visit www.texasthunderfest.com or call (855) 362-0535.

Seven-time Grammy winning trio Lady Antebellum will light up national TV over the next two weeks with performances spotlighting tracks from their upcoming fourth studio album Golden, out May 7th.

Release day will begin with appearances on Good Morning America and The Ellen DeGeneres Show and end with an exclusive and intimate release show at New York City's newest hot spot The McKittrick Hotel for the Lady Antebellum GOLDEN Release Show presented by Citi.

The VIP event will give a select number of fans the first preview of songs off the new album and a donation will be made to Musicians On Call on behalf of the group's charity initiative LadyAID.

The net day, Lady A will begin their take-over on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and set up residency at 30 Rock with interviews and performances on both Wednesday (5/8) and Thursday (5/9) nights' shows. The following week, Lady A will jet to the West Coast for an appearance on Chelsea Lately (5/13) and a performance on NBC's The Voice (5/14) before continuing on to Toronto for more media appearances and events.

Fans will find the new album familiar but simultaneously unlike any of its predecessors. It focuses on songwriting and fresh uses of their talents, which was at the heart of what drew Lady A together in the first place. In the end, the mix of their road experiences, songwriting and challenging outside songs adds a brightness to the album that's reflected in the Golden title. Golden's playful lead single "Downtown" set the pace ahead of its release, quickly becoming the trio's fastest charting No. 1 single, holding at No. 1 for two weeks and earning gold certification by the RIAA.

For more info on the new album and upcoming appearances, visit the band's official website.
