COUNTRY MUSIC DUO BIG & RICH TO BE FEATURED IN UPCOMING EPISODE OF ABC’s HIT ROMANCE REALITY SERIES THE BACHELOR

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (February 5, 2014) – Famed country music duo Big & Rich will be featured on an upcoming episode of The Bachelor.

Chris Soules, the handsome and successful new Bachelor who has become known as “Prince Farming,” introduced himself to last season’s Bachelorette Andi Dorfman, and female fans fell hard for the soft-spoken man with a heart of gold. Now, this dreamboat farmer and wealthy businessman from Iowa is looking to fall in love and find a wife — and bring her back home to share a life with him in the small Iowa town of Arlington. With the support of his family and the state of Iowa rooting for him, Chris truly believes he can find the right woman to share a life with. Follow Chris Soules’ search for his soul mate in the 19th edition of The Bachelor on Mondays (8:00–10:01 pm ET) on the ABC Television Network.

Texas Thunder Rumbles with the Sound of Thousands of Fans—

 

Festival Organizers Already Planning for 2015

 

Zero Arrests at This Year’s Festival According to Ector County Sheriff's Department

 

GARDENDALE, TX (May 20, 2014) – The second annual Texas Thunder music festival, held in Gardendale this past weekend, was a smash success, featuring performances by country superstars The Band Perry and Lee Brice, as well as Texas favorites Randy Rogers Band, Stoney LaRue, Wade Bowen and more. The mixture of Texas and Nashville country music attracted thousands of fans to the two day music festival. The family-friendly atmosphere included non-stop music from two stages, but also specialty and food vendors, a carnival ride, camping and much more. Festival organizers are already planning on making 2015 even bigger and better.

 

“2014 was a great success for us,” said festival owner Herb Graham. “but we want to build on this momentum to create the biggest and the best country music festival in Texas. This is an incredible opportunity for local communities to be a part of the growth of Texas Thunder, not only as an audience enjoying amazing world class entertainment, but to also attract thousands of people to the Permian Basin each year, which in turn helps to support the local economy.”

 

The festival is also proud to announce there were zero arrests and zero DWIs at this year’s event, in stark contrast to other events in the area. The festival and the Ector County Sheriff’s Department worked together to support an entertaining, fun, and family friendly event, which is an important priority for festival organizers. 

 

“At large-scale events similar to Texas Thunder, we have had as many as 19 arrests and 40 DWIs,” said Sergeant Eric Carrasco, head of security at this year’s festival. “Everyone had a great time while following the rules and it helped to create a safe and fun atmosphere for all attendees.”
