Nashville, TN --- Thursday, April 25, 2013 --- In response to the recent tragedy in West, TX, Texas Thunder festival organizers have teamed up with fellow Texas music artists to support the West, TX community. The Texas Thunder music festival, running May 17-19 and taking place in Gardendale, Texas, will feature The Randy Rogers Band, Wade Bowen, Casey Donahew Band, Josh Abbott Band, Stoney LaRue and many more and will raise funds for those affected in the tragic explosion last Wednesday.

“For 13 years now our band has been traveling I-35 and stopping in West, TX along the way to sample the good food,” said Randy Rogers. “It’s become a staple on our tour. Now it’s time for us to give back.”

“We are disheartened by the tragedy in West, Texas. Texans are passionate about their communities and upon hearing of this tragedy, the Texas music community reached out to lend a helping hand,” says event organizer Brian Andrews. “100% of net proceeds from the Texas Thunder music festival will benefit the schools and first-responders of West, Texas.”

Texas Thunder presents an all-star, all-Texas line-up, with both musicians and fans coming together to help bring support to those who need it most. Weekend passes are available for a discounted price of $65 with camping starting at $110. A very limited number of single-day tickets are available for $35.
