Real Outlaw Country can be heard this July 11 starting at 6pm. Three bands will be headlining including Bryon Garrison and the RainMakers, The Doodlin’ Hogwallops, and Rick Ruiz.

The bands will be defying expectations by kicking off the first festival since the start of COVID 19. “We’re holding it rain or shine,” said Garrison. The event will be held at 1187 Greasewood Rd. outside of Fort Stockton in Pecos County. “If you are tired of being stuck inside, this is a chance to hear some good country music from West Texas artists.”
