Texas Water Trade announced today their free, virtual music event featuring iconic Texas musicians to support the restoration of Comanche Springs and other Texas waterways. Once known as the Spring City of Texas, the City of Fort Stockton’s 30- million-gallon-a-day spring has not flowed reliably since groundwater pumping accelerated in the 1950s. A recent study by Texas Water Trade and The Meadows Center for Water and the Environment found that a restored Comanche Springs would create tremendous ecological, cultural and economic benefits—including bringing $4 million a year in non-local spending to the City of Fort Stockton.
Featured artists include Shinyribs’ Kevin Russell, Ray Benson, Los Texmaniacs, Charley Crockett, Bruce Robison, Carrie Rodriguez, Josh Baca and the Hot Tamales, Cody Canada, Walt Wilkins, Jon Dee Graham, Jack Ingram and Gary P. Nunn.
