Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

Friday, May 24th:
8-11 PM
Brant Croucher Live


Just two years ago, Texas-based singer-songwriter Brant Croucher released his first album, Old Denton Roads, a collection of lyric-driven Americana, country and rock-inspired songs about road-weary travel and love-lost… and an occasional affinity for whiskey. 
The Houston native has since been nominated for Best Country Act by the Houston Press in 2011 and 2012 and Best Male Vocalist by the Texas Music Awards in 2012.
A new album in the works, for the wayward writer, along with a host of tour dates across the U.S.

Come out and taste with Shelley Henderson from Miranda Lambert's Red 55 Winery label this Saturday!

She'll be tasting our customers through:
Belle - Sweet Red
White Liar - Chardonnay
Crazy Ex Girlfriend - Sweet White
Kerosene - Pinot Grigio
Red 55 Cab - Cabernet Sauvignon
Electric Pink - Blush

More About The Red 55 Winery Here:
A good deal of time went into developing this private wine label for Miranda Lambert. The reason is simple: We believe in families working hard together and celebrating success together when it finally comes. Just like wine, in the music industry, there are no overnight sensations. Many years of hard work go into the product that the public ultimately experiences. For that reason we have partnered with the family of the LouViney Vineyards to bottle a wine worthy to put Miranda’s name on. This family owned vineyard exemplifies the very values that we honor. With each of the six wines we offer on Miranda’s private label, we trust you will taste and experience the time, effort and love that goes into every bottle. It is also our hope that you will experience the great pride that comes from working hard and celebrating success together in your own family. Thank you for enjoying a bit of ours with us.

He's played in several different bands over the years, but now after a 14 year vacation, it's just him and his guitar. Country music is his first love, but he likes all kinds of music. He mostly sings country classics in his live show, but will throw in some Eagles or Skynard or other Classic Rock.
