We are extremely excited to announce six of the artists for this year’s Courtyard Texas Music Series! Going into its 8th year, this series continues to bring top names from Texas Music to Plano, featuring both well-known artists and emerging talent.
Tommy Alverson has shared the stage with Texas musicians Willie Nelson, Johnny Bush, Johnny Gimble, Jerry Jeff Walker, Clay Blaker, Gary P. Nunn, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Radney Foster, and Steven Fromholz, as well as Robert Earl Keen, Pat Green, Charlie Robison, Dale Watson, and singer/songwriter Jim Lauderdale. Ed Burleson won a rodeo scholarship to Hill College in Hillsboro, TX, and it was there that he first started learning guitar. While recovering from a knee injury, his love for playing country music grew. He first started playing at a newcomer’s showcase at the Three Teardrops Tavern in Dallas. His 1999 album, “My Perfect World,” hit number four on the Americana charts.
Ed Burleson is a baby-faced, sixth-generation Texan who works construction by day and crafts traditionally minded honky tonk by night. He has counted among his supporters the late Texas legend Doug Sahm, who served as Burleson’s manager and co-produced his My Perfect World album. For that effort, Burleson was also joined by such elite Texas players as Bill Kirchen (Commander Cody) and Lloyd Maines, among others.
