Country music sensation, Mark Chesnutt returns, by popular demand, as the featured entertainer at “The 18th Annual Texas Barn Dance” fundraiser for the Boys & Girls Club of Brown County. Chesnutt was the headliner of the event in 2015 held at Sorrel Canyon Ranch. This year’s event will be held at 3 Springs Ranch in Zephyr on Saturday night May 11th.
Mark got his start in the honky-tonks of Beaumont, Texas playing alongside his dad, Bob Chesnutt, and began making a name for himself. Mark hit the national country music scene in 1990 with his debut album “Too Cold at Home”. Half the songs from that album became hit singles including, “Blame It On Texas”, “Your Love Is A Miracle”, “Brother Jukebox”, “Too Cold at Home” and “Broken Promise Land”. Other top ten hits include “Almost Goodbye”, “Old Flames Have New Names”, “It’s A Little Too Late” and “Bubba Shot the Juke Box”.
Mark Chesnutt’s stature is easily gauged; he has 14 Number 1 hits, 23 top 10 singles, 4 platinum albums and 5 gold records.
This year’s venue,3 Springs Ranch, is located on County Road 261 in Zephyr, and is a multifunctional 2,100-acre ranch boasting lush hunting, luxurious accommodations and outstanding amenities for events. The Texas Barn Dance will be held in the Ranch’s event Pavilion that features a grand fireplace, chandeliers, stage, dance area and wrap around patio.
In addition to an evening of dancing to the live performance by Chesnutt, the Texas Barn Dance will feature a delicious tenderloin meal, open bar, live and silent auctions and the opportunity to visit with friends while supporting The Boys & Girls Club of Brown County. Tickets will go on sale March 1st.
Monies raised at the 2019 Texas Barn Dance will be critical to the 2019-2020 operating budget of The Boys & Girls Club of Brown County. The Club provides a positive place for children 6-18 years of age to go after school and during the summer.
