A respected name in Texas Country, Stoney LaRue has been performing in College Station for years. Texas A&M students and Brazos Valley residents have welcomed him to Hurricane Harry’s.
As an artist raised in Oklahoma, LaRue has proven his worth and is now comparable to the ‘greats’ of Texas Country such as Pat Green and Robert Earl Keen. His rising influence in the industry quickly resulted in an increase of fans, or as he refers to them, the “LaRue Crue.” The most recent release from LaRue in 2015, “Us Time” pays tribute to his supporters by featuring his most loved original songs such as “Feet Don’t Touch the Ground” and “Oklahoma Breakdown” as well as covers and new songs.
Stoney LaRue has landed himself a position of upmost respect from Texas Country fans all over Texas and College Station is no exception. In the midst of off his sold out shows and long tours, he always manages to plan a stop in Aggieland. He’ll be taking the stage at Hurricane Harry’s on February 10 with Nathan Bonnes opening the show.
Bonnes, an Americana artist from Corpus Christi, has seen extreme growth in his writing and performance skills. Bonnes spent his college years performing at small coffee shops and open mic nights around Houston with his small band. He later met a group of highly talented friends from Aggieland as well as classical musicians enrolled alongside him at Rice University. These friends added a new flavor to Bonnes’ music that took his sound in a unique direction. Stunning additions of steel guitar, mandolin and string quartet arrangements are all featured next to Bonnes’ vocals and lyrics. The combination is a breathtaking twist on classic two-steppin’ music.
Following his multiple EP releases, Nathan Bonnes’ first full length, self-titled album dropped in November. He has gained traction with this album and will be opening for Stoney LaRue at Hurricane Harry’s.
The doors will open at 9pm on February 10, and tickets can be purchased for $15 online, at Cavender’s Boot City or Aggieland Outfitters on University Dr.
