Pat Green is ready to give the fans at the Brownwood Reunion on Friday night everything they want and the ‘kitchen sink.’
Green, who is from Waco and has spent most of his life living in Central Texas, was a late edition to the Brownwood Reunion, stepping in to fill the headlining spot for the band Survivor, who suffered a sudden tragedy when lead singer Jimi Jamison died unexpectedly on Aug. 31, 2014.
“I was so sad to hear about the passing of the lead singer and obviously it is such a difficult time for his family,” Green said. “Blessing to his family.
“I have been living in Central Texas my entire life, so I am happy to fill in and be part of this big show. We are going to make the best of it.”
Green will hit the Celebration Stage on Friday night at 10:30 p.m. and is ready to give the fans what they are wanting.
“Obviously, we will play all the hits,” Green said. “All the Wave on Waves and Carry Ons, Three Days and Southbound 35s and Feels Just Like It Should. However, we also have some new songs to keep things going. So, you get everything, including the kitchen sink.”
Green has been in and around Brownwood more times than he can count. And while music is how he makes his living, some of the best times he has had around Brown County have been with a shotgun in hand.
“More than playing (in Brownwood), I have gotten to go deer hunting and dove hunting in the area,” Green said. “I have to say, my best experiences in life in (this) area has been having fun as an old West Texas boy.”
The gates are set to open at 6:30 p.m., with a National Anthem by John Barnes slated for 7:25 p.m.
Ellashore will hit the stage at 7:30 p.m., followed by Van Wilks at 9 p.m. Then ninety minutes later the fans will get what they came for — a night with Pat Green.
“Anytime I get a chance to play in and around my hometown I feel great,” Green said.
