The recent tropical weather that cooled Texas off may have signaled the changing of the seasons, but one thing about Texas never changes: its love of country music. While the mecca of country music is always thought of as being in up Nashville, the Texas Red Dirt scene has spawned a genre of country all its own, and its many talented performers are no strangers to local bars and dancehalls. This weekend on Friday, October 2, Southerns in College Station is hosting what is sure to be a classic Texas country show. Local up-and-comer A&M student Hayden Haddock will be playing with fellow Texan Tylor Bigley at 8:30 p.m.
Haddock, a Texas A&M junior, has spent his last few years in a delicate balancing act between school and music, performing all across Texas and its surrounding states on the weekends. He has also notched hundreds of thousands of listens on Spotify and has even signed a partnership deal with Rebecca Creek Whiskey, a prestigious Texan distillery. Having already written and recorded hits with some of the most talented names in the country music scene, Haddock has made Aggieland plenty proud, and it’s always a pleasure to see him back here.
Tylor Bigley, a Bryan native, now lives in Austin, and has been performing for a little more than five years. Growing up in a family of Tejano/country musicians, Bigley’s inspiration covers everything from Tracy Lawrence to Michael Salgado, Sturgill Simpson, Merle Haggard and Texas Twisters.
If you order tickets ahead of time from Southern’s website , they will only cost 10 dollars (though military and first-responder discounts can lower that even further), and they will cost 15 dollars at the door.
