Music to Our Ears 🎶

SUNDAY August 7, 2022

“Where words fail, music speaks.”

Hans Christian Anderson

Kevin Galloway’s music strikes a chord with easy tunes and compelling stories that invite us to take a listen and tap our toes. Hear new music from Galloway’s second album Secondhand Starlight at Winnsboro’s Bowery Stage on August 13.

Many other voices from the Upper East Side of Texas are also music to our ears — sometimes from the most unexpected people. In this issue we share the story of how as an infant, Lady Bird Johnson inspired Alice Shaw to give her the nickname after hearing her beautiful voice.

 

County Line Magazine brings you the best music and events from around the region. We also tell stories that matter about the region’s people, places, and events.
