Step on down to the County Fair…
Old 97’s County Fair, that is! The North Texas alt-country festival returns April 8 with an array of bands that would make any jukebox happy.

Here’s what you need to know:

A Dallas staple through and through, here’s Old 97’s performing “Longer Than You’ve Been Alive.”
The great Lucinda Williams performed “Stand Right By Each Other” right here in the KXT studio back in 2014. Watch more videos from the KXT live session here.
Dallas-based Jonathan Tyler hits the County Fair stage at noon as the first act. Come prepared and dive in to his KXT live session before you head to the fest.
Members of The Jayhawks stopped by the KXT studio to play a few tunes off album Mockingbird Time in 2011. Listen back to the KXT interview.
