Some of Texas country music’s best current talents pay homage to a talented peer on Dancehall Dreamin’: A Tribute to Pat Green. The tribute album arrives on April 5, which happens to be Green’s 46th birthday.

After a run in the ’90’s as an independent artist with the benefit of a Miller Light sponsorship and a Willie Nelson endorsement, Green began a mainstream career in 2001. Sparse moments of fame and recognition followed, with such tracks as “Three Days” and “Wave on Wave” netting chart success and radio airplay. He eventually became just as happy pursing his music on his own terms, returning to the Texas’ rich independent country music scene in 2011.

Artists on the compilation include some of Texas’ best homegrown songwriters and performers, including Jack Ingram, Aaron Watson and the Randy Rogers Band. In addition to 10 covers, 10 tracks tell the story behind each song.
