The Courtyard Texas Music Series continues Thursday August 4, 7:30 p.m. with a performance by Bart Crow at the Courtyard Theatre in Downtown Plano.

Always known as “the nice guy” with a smile on his face, the tides are turning and the gloves are coming off. Bart Crow is still the kind of guy  artist fans in the South and Midwest have grown to love. But on his new album The Parade, boundaries disappear and things are getting real.

Myriad spirits haunt his music– a choir of real American country in the fashion of Merle and Waylon, John Conlee, George Jones and Jerry Jeff Walker, razor-edged rock from Metallica, Pearl Jam, Alice in Chains, deep-fried Southern soul from Otis Redding and more.

New listeners may go beyond enjoying The Parade to identify with Crow as someone who knows first-hand the challenges of balancing one’s dreams, integrity, responsibilities, and reality. That dream is within reach now because Crow’s story is your story too. All you need to do is listen — and join The Parade.
