BRADY — The 31st Heart of Texas Country Music Festival will run from March 20-28, in Brady and will feature fifteen shows and dances with over 30 traditional country music artists plus the Darrell McCall and Friends Golf Tournament.

The Heart of Texas Country Music Festival grew from the Hillbilly Hits radio show featured on KNEL FM 95.3. During the last several years, the event has become a destination event for Traditional Country Music fans from across the country and many foreign areas as well. Last year, tickets were sold to fans from over 21 states as well as Switzerland, Canada, Ireland, Scotland, England, Australia and Sweden.

Tickets are on sale beginning January 28, at www.heartoftexascountry.com or by phoning (325) 597-1895. The events will be staged at the new Brady Civic Center, the Heart of Texas Events Center and the Heart of Texas Country Music Museum.

“The Heart of Texas Country Music Festival is a great time for fans of Traditional Country Music to gather and hear the music that they enjoy,” event organizer Tracy Pitcox said. “It is like a family reunion of sorts allowing the fans and the artists to gather and celebrate great music. It also helps out our local economy and allows many people to see our community that may never visit here for any other reason.”
