TTRMS – LJT Texas Music Festival On Tour!
April 5th – 8:00 p.m.
Larry Joe Taylor started out in the early 70’s no different than many of his fans today: A full-time employee with a deep love of music, armed with only an old guitar and a dream. Taylor writes songs that form his own genre he likes to call “Coastal & Western”. The varied moods of Taylor’s songs keep the crowds on their toes while he shifts from his loud-and-proud dancing tunes to soulful ballads.
Some 40 years later, Taylor finds himself right in the middle of the biggest dream of his life; to not only be a respected songwriter in his own right, but also having the opportunity to present songwriters and music he respects on one of the biggest stages in the U.S…the Larry Joe Taylor Texas Music Festival, drawing crowds of 55,000 plus.
So what does LJT do when not recording, performing or hosting the Texas Regional Radio Music Awards “Event of the Year”? Each July, you can find Taylor living on “Island Time”, a 10-day trip to the small Caribbean island of Isla Mujeres, Mexico. August finds Taylor in Red River, New Mexico for his “Hot Chili Days, Cool Mountain Nights” festival. In September, he’s back at Melody Mountain Ranch for his annual “Rhymes & Vines” Music Festival and Homebrew and Winemaker Competition. In January, Taylor can be found “Coastin’ & Cruisin’” on his songwriter cruise, the largest songwriter cruise sailing out of Texas for the past 17 years. Music and event hosting aside, Taylor enjoys spending time at his ranch raising Black Angus and Brahman cattle, following PRCA Rodeo and PBR Bull Riding, and looks forward to the time when he can spend at least a year sailing the Caribbean; and the rest, as they say, is history.
