On June 3rd, Baylor's Touchdown Alley at McClane Stadium in Waco will transform into a country music festival paradise when the 20th annual Bowen MusicFest is held. Each year, musician Wade Bowen throws the fest to raise money for the Bowen Family Foundation. Last year alone, the event brought in $500,000 for children and family charities in the Waco area like local chapters of the March of Dimes, Boys and Girls Clubs and CASA.
Tickets for a base price of just $25 went on sale in mid-March along with the announcement that Midland, Joe Nichols, Aaron Watson and Josh Abbott would hit the stage. Now, the full line-up is out, so Texas country music fans will be hurrying to snag a ticket if they haven't already. New additions include Ray Wylie Hubbard and Jason Eady taking some headlining spots, joined by Kevin Fowler, Randy Rogers, Suzy Bogguss, Cody Canada and REO Speedwagon.
Bowen MusicFest is open to country fans of all ages, and kids 12 and under get in for free.
