Polished Edge: Bart Crow to play Kosciusko Hall
WCN CorrespondentNovember 14, 2012 3,029 views Post a comment
KOSCIUSKO -- Put on your hats and strap on your best dancin’ shoes! One of Wilson County’s favorite local venues, Kosciusko Hall, will play host to Texas country music artist Bart Crow Wednesday, Nov. 21, at 8 p.m. in the hall, near Stockdale.
The singer is no stranger to Kosciusko, and has played the venue several times with artists such as Kevin Fowler and the “Eli Young Band.” Bart said he enjoys playing smaller venues like Kosciusko, because it always draws such a big crowd.
“The bigger the crowd, the better we play,” he said. “I come from a small town, so it’s my forte.”
Bart may be best remembered for his hit, “Wear My Ring,” which swept through the honky tonk scene a few years back. Recently, he released his fourth album, “Dandelion,” with the single “Little Bit of Luck,” which climbed to No. 1 on the Texas radio charts and held strong for three weeks.
“I’ve never been so proud of anything I’ve recorded as I am of this record,” he said. Bart said the band will be introducing some of the songs from the new album during the Nov. 21 performance.
To date, Bart has earned one chart topper, two more top fives, one top 10, and four top 20s on the Texas Music Chart and has sold well over 30,000 albums and downloads.
“There’s something for everyone,” Bart said of his style of music. “Although it’s just a bunch of noise and racket!”
He’s known for putting on a dynamic and high-energy live performance, and with the lively crowd that normally ventures out to Kosciusko Hall, it’s likely this show will be just as exciting!
“The Thanksgiving week show is a good concert to have,” Bart said. “Just come on out; we’ll do the rest!”
To get to know Bart a little better, here is some personal information about him that he doesn’t mind you knowing.
Bart credits his musical influences as “The Beatles,” Steve Earle, and Jim Croce. His favorite Texas country artists are Pat Green, Jack Ingram, and Bruce Robison. His favorite barbecue joint is Chiefs in South Austin, he loves funny man Blake Shelton, and when asked the famous question -- boots or chucks? -- “That’s a tough one,” he said. “I’m about 50/50 on both -- I wear one or the other just about every day!”
Make the trip to Kosciusko and support Bart Crow and his band. It will be a night full of entertainment, dancing, and promises to be a good time! Tickets are on sale at the door for $15 and pre-sale for $12.
