Opening Performance by Singer/Songwriter and American Idol Contestant Riley Thompson


Very fresh on the music scene, Riley Thompson started performing on the local stage in July 2017 with a mix of Country and Texas Country covers, along with her own originals. Influenced by Kacey Musgraves, Miranda Lambert and Maren Morris, Riley has a unique voice with a character that you will not forget, especially coming from a 20-year-old college sophomore from the small town of Mabank, Texas. Riley’s notable accomplishments to date include becoming a top 14 American Idol contestant; being awarded the title of “2019 Young Artist of the Year” by the Texas Country Music Association; competing in the first season of Shania Twain’s Real Country TV show; and a top five showing in the Texas Music City Songwriter Competition at 15-years-old. Riley has also had the pleasure of opening for some of Texas Country’s greatest, including Walt Wilkins, Bart Crow and Jack Ingram.

Main Event Performance from southern soul band Prophets and Outlaws


The southern soul band originated in a Jesuit high school set in the heart of metropolitan Dallas when two brothers and a best friend came together in their shared love of music. Almost a decade and five EPs later, the now band of five boasts a massive fan base that spans ten states across the South and Midwest and an active online community of more than 25,000. Their commanding instrumental groove, relatable lyrics, and authentic five part harmonies have sent them to the top of the music charts and earned the band over 2 million Spotify streams.
