Kick Off Summer with Sammy Kershaw Live at Fat Daddy’s!


Join us as we kick off summer with a night of live music from a Texas Favorite, Sammy Kershaw!

“The music business is an ever-changing model, and Sammy Kershaw has seen it all. From consolidations with radio and record companies to the digital era that we are now in, he admits that he wondered if there was still a place for his Pure Country sound. “I don’t know if the fire ever left,” he says, “but I had some doubts for a while if people still wanted to hear my music, or if radio would still play my music anymore.” Click here to read Sammy’s full biography.

The live music will start at 9pm with an opening performance from Josh Grider! Josh’s mix of traditional and modern influences has combined to make a living, breathing collection of songs that range from ethereal and pensive, to light-hearted and downright funny. He makes no more apologies for his electronic loops than he does for his thoughtful lyrics. Click here to read more about Josh!

Not only will Sammy be here live but we’re also offering 2 lucky fans a chance to meet him! Simply “like” us on Facebook by clicking here before June 18th and enter to win! Check back on the page to see if you’ve won!
