On Wed, January 20, the TMO’s Texas Music Mixtape was joined by Red Dirt country music singer/songwriter Cody Canada, MusicFest founder/producer John Dickson, & TMO Director Brendon Anthony to discuss “The Years: a Musicfest Tribute to Cody Canada & the Music of Cross Canadian Ragweed." During the conversation, we learned: the origins of popular destination Texas music fest, how the numerous artist collaborations at the fest come together, & what's the magic formula that keeps artists like Canada, Jamie Lin Wilson, Courtney Patton, Reckless Kelly, Randy Rogers, & countless others coming back each year, performing to capacity crowds that sell-out tickets a year in advance.
