Kyle Bennett will open for the “Josh Abbott Band” Friday, June 15, at the 68th annual Watermelon Jubilee in Stockdale.

Sometimes the best chapters of our lives are the ones we write ourselves, and country artist Kyle Bennett is doing just that as he comes into his own with his first solo project to be released later this year. With a new wife, new baby, and a new band, Kyle is excited to let his music reflect this new chapter in his life.

Kyle’s parents were music directors at the family’s church in Fort Worth and have released their own Christian gospel albums, so it’s no surprise that Kyle followed suit from an early age.

The new single, “Here In This Town,” covers the depressingly happy reality of being left behind by the one you love.

Bennett will be the opening act for the “Josh Abbott Band.”

A mere 57 seconds into the opening track of the band’s “She’s Like Texas,” you’re likely to be hooked. One intro, one verse, and one chorus are pretty much all that’s required to recognize something special in the Texas-based act.

The winding riffs that open “Road Trippin” have a weighty Southern-rock air about them, though the actual instrumentation -- fiddler Preston Wait and guitarist Gabe Hanson breeze through the lines in unison -- hints faintly at the western-swing heritage deep in their Texas roots. Bass player Daniel Almodova and drummer Edward Villanueva set a powerful, chugging rhythmic foundation that walks the line between commercial country and raw honky tonks.

And Josh Abbott -- the founder, lead singer, and chief songwriter for the ensemble -- evinces a slight Steve Earle character: breathy, fiery, intense.
