Over 50 performers will take part in the festivities!

Terri Hendrix is from San Antonio, and got her start playing everywhere from "greasy dives" (as she once told me) to fancier digs like Restaurant Biga back when it was off of McCullough St. In 1996, she released her first album, "Two Dollar Shoes." The infectious title track and folksy melodies were a hit. She kept writing and performing, and became a self-made businesswoman with the establishment of her own record label, Wilory Records (née Tycoon Cowgirl Records).  Twenty years and over a dozen studio/live releases later, her audience has grown into a nationwide following.

Even when Terri Hendrix gets the blues, she does so with joy and passion. Her latest album, “Love You Strong,” was released earlier this year after a five-year hiatus from recording.

From Texas Standard:

It's been smooth sailing for Leon Bridges this summer. The 27-year-old neo-soul singer from Fort Worth has gotten lots of critical acclaim as well as a mighty big hat tip from President Obama, who included Bridges on his second-annual summer Spotify playlist.

The playlist runs the gamut from indie rockers like Courtney Barnett and Edward Sharpe to Brazil's Caetano Veloso. Dan Solomon, who writes for Texas Monthly, thinks the president may have overlooked some Texas flavor.
