Kosciusko’s third annual “Kickin for a Kure” welcomes music powerhouses the “Randy Rogers Band,” Robert Earl Keen, and Aaron Watson as they perform live on Saturday, July 13, in the Kosciusko Hall at 7975 F.M. 541 E. in Stockdale.

‘Randy Rogers Band’

The “Randy Rogers Band” is a hard-hitting, no-frills band that averages more than 200 tour dates a year on a road in which, as their new studio album intimates, “Trouble” is always just around the corner. Teaming up for the first time with award-winning producer Jay Joyce (Eric Church, “Cage the Elephant,” “The Wallflowers”), the Texas five-piece dove headfirst into songs of loss, love, and, above all, truth. “At times it cuts deep and you can hear the pain,” said Rogers. “But it’s honest, it’s real.” The band has always enjoyed critical acclaim, thanks to their signature blend of outlaw edge coupled with guy-next-door charm. This album takes that duality to the next level and gives us all a reason to get into some “Trouble.”

Rogers has performed with Willie Nelson, Gary Allan, Dierks Bentley, and Miranda Lambert, and opened for “The Eagles” at Indio’s Stagecoach Festival. The “Randy Rogers Band” has performed on the “Late Show” with David Letterman, and the “Tonight Show” with Jay Leno.

Robert Earl Keen

Keen was born Jan. 11, 1956, and is an American singer-songwriter and entertainer living in the Central Texas Hill Country. Debuting with 1984’s “No Kinda Dancer,” the Houston native has recorded 18 full-length albums for both independent and major record labels. His songs have also been covered by several different artists from the country, folk, and Texas country music scenes, including George Strait, Joe Ely, Lyle Lovett, “The Highwaymen,” Nanci Griffith, and the “Dixie Chicks.” Although both his albums and live performances span many different styles, from folk, country, and bluegrass to rock, he is most commonly affiliated with the Americana movements. Additionally, although Keen has toured extensively both nationally and internationally throughout his career, he has long been heralded as one of the Lone Star State’s most popular and consistently acclaimed musical ambassadors, leading to his induction into the Texas Heritage Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2012.

Aaron Watson

Watson has been through a lot in his 12-year career: 11 albums, the birth of four children, countless hours on the road, and many more still spent toiling away at his guitar. He’d give all the credit to God, but it’s also the result of a long career inspired by the greats of country music -- George Strait, Chris Ledoux, Willie Nelson, and Waylon Jennings. His music has formed into a unique sound that is at once both purely new, and representative of a grand Southern tradition.

Watson’s career has been, as he would put it, “slow and steady; a long distance race and not a sprint.” Though he currently lives in Abilene, he was raised in Amarillo on his father’s record collection that not only included classic country, but also acts like the “Beach Boys” and “The Beatles.”

Ask Watson what inspires him -- and his music -- and he’ll list three things: family, fans, and faith. After a series of records including one of gospel songs titled “Barbed Wire Halo” and another a dual disc CD/DVD, “Aaron Watson LIVE: Deep in the Heart of Texas,” Watson feels his most recent album, “Real Good Time,” is the pinnacle of his musical tenure thus far. He has sold more than 150,000 records, seven No. 1 singles on the Texas Music Chart, and four albums that debuted on the Billboard charts.

So kick your feet up as Watson sings, and let a country boy show you a real good time.

Attendees can also participate in the IBCA-sanctioned barbecue cook-off and a washer tournament. General admission will be $25 per person with all proceeds to benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
