BlueHighways Lead to Lone Star State


BlueHighways TV Monday announced a new weekly, half-hour series called Texas County Line that will feature prominent Lone Star State musicians, music and personalities.

Hosted by Texas native Brad Maule (General Hospital, 7th Heaven), the new series bows on Tuesday at 8:30 p.m.

"Texans enjoy their traditional country and western swing music, and our state is rich with musicians and songwriters," Maule said in a statement "With Texas County Line, I take BHTV viewers on the ultimate insider's tour of Texas honky-tonks and festivals, spiced with the famous characters, stories and vintage performance footage of our musical history." 

The series is produced by David Stallings of Texas County Line Productions, based in Nacogdoches, Texas. 

Texas County Line features Country Music Hall of Fame member and Grammy Winner Ray Price's 82nd Birthday Concert in Tyler; a visit to the Texas Country Music Hall of Fame in Carthage; and a vintage video clip of a dapper Willie Nelson singing "Crazy," the song he wrote for Patsy Cline.  The show also includes a video from Crystal Sands, a newcomer who keeps her sound traditional to country roots, and a visit to Harlon's Barbeque in Nacogdoches, where singer Glenn Lenderman offers up roadhouse country music for patrons and dancers. 

Future performers on the BHTV Texas County Line series will include: Bob Wills' Texas Playboys, Gene Watson, Eddy Raven, Johnny Rodriquez, Billy Joe Shaver, Darrell McCall, Tony Booth, Joe Stampley, Moe Bandy, Heather Myles, Amber Digby, Justin Trevino, Frankie Miller, Leona Williams and Ron Williams.
