Love and Theft and Casey Donahew Band to Headline Second Annual Buckin Wild Music Fest

Buckin Wild Music Fest

Dubbed by Great American Country (GAC) as one of last summer’s Top Tours, Festivals + Rockin’ Road Trips, the Second Annual Buckin Wild Music Fest returns to the Lost Creek Ranch and Arena on historic Route 66 west of Erick, Oklahoma, adding a third night to the party July 16-18.

Capturing the hearts of fans all over Western Oklahoma, the Texas Panhandle and beyond, with more than 3,000 in attendance last year, the highly anticipated festival remains one of the first and only festivals in the area to combine live Country and Red Dirt music, bull riding, camping, and much more. Many avid festival-goers have already staked out their campsites from last year, claiming Buckin Wild Music Fest as their own new summer tradition.

The All-American, home-grown festival is proud to announce 16 acts in its 2015 line-up. Topping the list again this year is platinum-selling duo Love and Theft, set to perform on the main stage Saturday night. The CMA, ACM and CMT nominated duo’s latest single, “Whiskey on My Breath,” is a current mainstay on Sirius XM’s “The Highway,” and the Grand Ole Opry stage in Nashville, in hot pursuit of another #1 spot on the Billboard charts, following their 2013 #1 hit “Angel Eyes.”

Friday night also brings a fired-up roster with headliner Texas Music Mainstay Casey Donahew Band, whose high-energy, leave-it-all-on-the-stage throw-downs and latest album, “Standoff,” which debuted a #1 on the Country iTunes chart, have propelled them onto the national music scene. Other hit makers to perform include Trent Tomlinson, American Young, Tyler Wilhelm, JW Lane and County Road X, Tommy Gallagher Band, Elaina Kay, Sarah Dunn Band, Steve Brack, a Few Dollars More, Kaitlyn Butts, Troy Cartwright, Boone Cook and the Remains, Ethan Stedman, Shep and Tear Stained Eye and more well-loved local area artists. Following the artists’ performances on Friday and Saturday, there will be a Post-Show Artist Jam led by American Young outside on the main stage.

Kicking off the festival, Thursday night will offer a FREE Artist Acoustic Showcase to all festival ticket holders. The showcase will create an intimate setting of hay bale seating inside the arena for casual acoustic performances by festival artists who will swap songs and share the stories behind them. “This is part of what makes Buckin Wild unique, the connection among the artists and the fans.  On or off the stage, everyone has a great time,” said festival founder and producer, Donny G. Liles.

Friday night’s Lost Creek Invitational Bull Riding Competition is sure to kick up the dust with top-notch riders and bulls on the PBR (Professional Bull Riders Association www.pbr.com) circuit competing for the $20,000 pay out.

The Buckin Wild Music Fest is proud to team up with the Cystic Fibrosis Oklahoma Chapter once again in 2015, hosting numerous fund raising activities for “adding tomorrows.”

The laid back, friendly atmosphere at the beautiful Lost Creek Ranch will again have both fans and artists treated to down-home, Western-style hospitality and good eats.  This year the Buckin Wild Music Fest has excellent vendors serving a wide range of foods, in addition to a great group of local volunteers and professionals helping.

Tickets and detailed information about the festival are available online at www.buckinwildmusicfest.com.  For updates, follow Buckin Wild Music Fest on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and use #BWMF.

Dierks Bentley Releases “Riser” LIVE Music Video

Dierks Bentley has released a LIVE music video for his new single, “Riser.” The performance was plucked from the 50th Annual ACM Awards in Dallas.

“It was really hard for me not to get emotional that night at the ACMs in Cowboy’s Stadium,” Bentley shares with EW. “I really wanted to keep the production simple and make the performance all about the arrangement and the lyrics. The reaction that night and now when we perform it on tour has already been so gratifying. People just relate to the message in that song…we’ve all lived it in one way or another.”

Check it out!

HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY from Country Music Tattle Tale

fourth0715-of-july

Country Music Tattle Tale wishes all of our readers a very safe and Happy 4th of July!   With so much going on in our world today we believe it is important to remember why we celebrate this very important day in our history.

Every July 4th we celebrate the signing of one of the great documents of history. The Declaration of Independence is still cherished today, not only because it proclaimed the independence of a new nation; and not only because it declared that all Americans are free. The Declaration goes further than that, asserting, ‘that all men are created equal’.  Every day thousands of people leave their homeland to come to the “land of the free and the home of the brave” so they can begin their American Dream.

“The Star Spangled Banner”

by Francis Scott Key
20 September 1814

Oh, say can you see, by the dawn’s early light,
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars, through the perilous fight,
O’er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming?
And the rockets’ red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.
O say, does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

On the shore, dimly seen through the mists of the deep,
Where the foe’s haughty host in dread silence reposes,
What is that which the breeze, o’er the towering steep,
As it fitfully blows, now conceals, now discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning’s first beam,
In full glory reflected now shines on the stream:
‘Tis the star-spangled banner! O long may it wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

And where is that band who so vauntingly swore
That the havoc of war and the battle’s confusion
A home and a country should leave us no more?
Their blood has wiped out their foul footstep’s pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight, or the gloom of the grave:
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

Oh! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved homes and the war’s desolation!
Blest with victory and peace, may the heaven-rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, for our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: “In God is our trust.”
And the star-spangled banner forever shall wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
