It’s not too late to two-step your way over to the 28th annual Heart of Texas Country Music Festival in Brady. There are a number of shows to choose from all week long and on Saturday. The Heart of Texas Country Music Association grew from the Hillbilly Hits Fan Club, a group established to promote the Hillbilly Hits Radio show aired in Brady, the festival website says.

The association, which has 850 members, promotes the Mason and Llano Country Opry shows at the Odeon and Lan-Tex Theaters. It has sponsored an assortment of country music entertainers at those venues, including Ray Price, Gene Watson, Kitty Wells, John Conlee, Freddie Hart, the Geezinslaws, Jean Shepard, and more. According to their website, the group also plans various trips to Branson and Nashville and operates Heart of Texas Records with projects currently by Leona Williams, Floyd Tillman, Justin Trevino, Frankie Miller, Darrell McCall, Pretty Miss Norma Jean, and Curtis Potter.
