2013 HEART O’ TEXAS FAIR & RODEO
INTRODUCES THE MUSIC ZONE

Waco, TX (September 25, 2013) – The 2013 Heart O’ Texas Fair & Rodeo presented by HEB proudly introduces the all new Music Zone which will be home to the Bud Light Music Stage. This year’s fair runs from Thursday, October 3 through Saturday, October 12.

The Music Zone will offer fans six nights of heart pounding entertainment in an outdoor setting which will feature “Music Zone Girls,” drink specials, contests and giveaways!! For those that show up early, they’ll receive a gift every night to include t-shirts, hats, ear buds, key chains, beach balls and retro glasses. Contests for this area include the Justin Boots Ring Toss, Allen Samuels Paper Plane Contest, Dance-off and more. The Music Zone opens at 7 p.m. on concert nights and the music gets underway around 8 p.m. during the week and 8:30 p.m. on weekends.

The 2013 entertainment lineup will be bigger than ever in the Music Zone, which will require a separate ticket purchase. Both in 2011 and 2012, surveyed fairgoers said they would pay for an additional ticket for a major singer or band. As a result, the Fair made the decision to spend more on entertainment and bring in more well-known artists.

Four-time Academy of Country Music nominee Lee Brice gets this parking lot party kicked off on Friday, October 4, along with The Brett Hendrix Band. Cost is $21 and includes gate admission to the Fair.

On Saturday, October 5, the Eli Young Band will bring a crazy good time to the Music Zone. Opening for EYB is Texas Country singer Curtis Grimes. Cost is $21 and includes gate admission to the Fair.

Next up in the Music Zone is Honky Tonk Kid – Aaron Watson – on Wednesday, October 9. Opening for Aaron, is Central Texas native SaraBeth. Cost is $16 and includes gate admission to the Fair.

Acclaimed singer, songwriter and musician – Andy Grammer – will make you want to keep your head up while you let your hair down during his performance on Thursday, October 10. Original Red Dirt Texas Country group – The Chris Low Band – will get the night started. Cost is $21 and includes gate admission to the Fair.

On Friday, October 11, you’re going to love Chris Young’s performance like there’s no tomorrow. Opening for Chris Young is the ever favorite Texas born-and-bred singer/songwriter Granger Smith. Cost is $21 and includes gate admission to the Fair.

Closing out the Music Zone on Saturday, October 12, is the always loved and entertaining Randy Rogers Band. Opening for the Randy Rogers Band is the no-bull, straight from the heart singer Brian Keane. Cost is $21 and includes gate admission to the Fair. VIP tickets are available this night.

For the music enthusiasts, the Fair is introducing a Music Zone Pass. The Music Zone Pass will get you into all six concerts and includes gate admission to the Fair for those six nights for $60, a 50% savings off the gate ticket price.
