Let’s Keep it Country Saturday Night With Sawyer Brown, Randy House, Brennin and more.

The iconic Sawyer Brown will remind you and the girls what you came for with his country rock sound. With some luck, he’ll play his anthem, “Some Girls Do” because….well, some girls do. Randy Houser will keep you and all of Cruces dancing to “How Country Feels” and his other hits. And if your heart skips a beat for Brennin, (as in TV Series “Nashville”) you will not be alone ladies.

Cuz Monday’s Coming…..

It’s Sunday and your last day to enjoy all things country with your besties. You’ve shopped, you’ve danced, now fit a run in! Get your sweat on with a fun run at the Giddy Up Gallop. Put on your best western costume and bring home the prize for “the team.”

The fun continues with Whataburger Sunday Funday. If you can’t get enough country, kick it with our country DJ until the Abe Mac Band rocks the stage, and don’t miss country music star Rick Trevino when he hits the stage at 2:30 to close out the festival.
