Robert Earl Keen’s “Virtual Fourth on the River” Concert to Feature Cody Canada, Willow City Music & Josh Morningstar

Robert Earl Keen will stream his Virtual Fourth on the River concert on July 4 at 7 p.m. CT via Facebook and YouTube.

The live concert broadcast from REK’s Snake Barn Movie Ranch Studio in Kerrville, Texas, will feature performances from Robert Earl Keen and band, Cody Canada, Willow City Music and special guest Josh Morningstar.

“We are excited to be able to continue our annual Fourth of July celebration by moving the concert online for our fans nationwide, and the best part is you don’t have to leave your yard or try to find a place to park to enjoy the fun,” says Robert Earl.

Originally slated to take place on the Guadalupe River in Kerrville, Texas, the concert was moved to a virtual event due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

When you’re getting a permanent addition to you body, you want to make sure it means something, right?

Michael Ray has several tattoos, but each one has a personal connection to his life, “All my tattoos are either family based, religious based, or music based.”

He shares the story of one of his tattoos that honors his late grandmother, “So, my grandma, Penny, she passed away a couple of years ago, and I have a tattoo memory of my grandfather, and I wanted a tattoo for her. Her nickname was Penny, and I got a penny with my Grandmother’s birth year, 1942, on the date, on the inside of my arm.”

If he could change one thing about the tattoo…it would just be WHEN he got it. Turns out Michael got it on a show day, and it being on his arm, well, Michael admits “I started playing guitar that night…for the show, and it hurt like hell.”

But even with that night of pain Michael proudly says “it’s probably my favorite tattoo.”
