Texas Artists Come Together To Help The Community Of West, After The Recent Tragedy. After the explosion of a fertilizer plant in West, Texas, the Texas Thunder festival organizers and the musicians scheduled to attend, have decided to support the West community. The Texas Thunder music festival will be May 17-19 in Gardendale, Texas. The Randy Rogers Band, Aaron Watson, Charlie Robison, Wade Bowen, Casey Donahew Band, Josh Abbott Band, Stoney LaRue and many more will perform and 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.” 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. “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 tickets are now available for purchase at Graham Central Station in Odessa, Rockin’ Rodeo Midland and Arriba Midland.
