We’ve been lovin’ all over country music with Rodeo Houston but there’s also a little music festival goin’ on with our friends to the west. SXSW has taken over Austin and you really never know what’s going to happen.
…Well…Some music fans who skipped out on the annual Ray Benson birthday party fundraiser concert this week are now kicking themselves for missing a surprise appearance…from upcoming Rodeo Houston performer, Willie Nelson.
…Last year, George Strait’s surprise appearance was the talk of Texas, but now Willie is making waves because of his roller coaster of ups and downs health wise. Willie recently canceled several concerts due to illness, and his appearance this week showed us all that the country legend is in good spirits while also holding his own on stage.
…Anddddd everyone let out a sigh of relief.
…We’ll see Willie this Saturday at Rodeo Houston. And from the videos we’re seeing out of Austin this week…we have a lot to look forward to.
…The singer is set to release his forthcoming album on April 28.
Baytown’s own RaeLynn has been a busy lady! We just saw her in town when she performed at our LiveBright Bash…girlfriend has been touring with Blake Shelton…AND next Friday marks the release of her new album, WILDHORSE.
…So how’s a 22-year-old supposed to celebrate?
…With a REALLY large tattoo.
…RaeLynn spent a lot of time looking for art and inspiration for this tattoo but ended up letting her tattoo artist create a one-of-a-kind piece instead. Girlfriend is a little thing anyway so this is some horsey head that takes up her whole forearm.
…She said, “I’ve always wanted a horse tattoo. I got some blue bonnets around it for Texas. And I wanted her to be really girly. When he drew her up, I was like, ‘Can you make her eyelashes just a little bigger?’ It’s funny cuz I never thought I was gonna be that girl with a big tattoo on her arm, but now I’m that girl with that big tattoo on my arm.”
