ACL Live at The Moody Theater
June 16


by Derek Van Wagner

Have you ever had the best of both worlds? Perhaps you won the lottery after you donated to charity, or you found 20 bucks while on a jet ski. If you have never felt that sensation, don’t fret because June 16 is your chance. Head to The Moody Theater to experience some of the best country music Austin has to offer with the sweet tones of Bruce Robison & Kelly Willis followed by the salty antics of Ray Benson & Dale Watson. With Willis’s heavenly voice and Robison’s melodic songwriting, the duo has made a name for themselves as one of Austin’s most harmonious couples. Now on the other side of the spectrum, Watson and Benson have separately made names for themselves as two maverick band leaders, with Benson in front of Asleep at the Wheel and Watson leading His Lonestars. From the Grand Ole Opry to Ginny’s Little Longhorn Saloon, they’ve just about played every watering hole in the country, and now they are the keepers of the flame for rowdy, raucous, Texas honky tonk music. So put some yin in your yang, some sin in your grin, maybe a little rum in your ice cream, and come downtown on Friday night to see both sides of the coin that Austin calls country music.
