Taking place March 31 to April 1 at the Back Porch of Texas in Abilene, the Outlaws & Legends Music Fest has consistently brought high-quality talent to the area in support of such a great cause. Previous years have seen the likes of Merle Haggard, Charlie Daniels, the Marshall Tucker Band, Jamey Johnson, Robert Earl Keen, and the Randy Rogers Band. The Ben Richey Boys Ranch benefits directly from the fundraising efforts put forth through this festival, which is a boys’ and now family program facility incorporating church, school, 4-H, FFA, and a horse program, along with other activities.
