With performances spanning generations and music that is still enjoyed by country music fans, the Brazos Valley Fair is excited to welcome The Charlie Daniels Band to the Bud Light Stage. “In his time, he’s played everything from rock to jazz, folk to western swing, and honkytonk to award-winning gospel”, former President Jimmy Carter said. “In Charlie’s own words, “Let there be harmony, let there be fun and 12 notes of music to make us all one.’.” There is no doubt that there will be all of those things brought to the stage by this exciting entertainer during the 2015 Brazos Valley Fair.

Other performances scheduled for the weekend include the always fun and entertaining Velcro Pygmies; the band leads the crowd on a roller coaster ride through the 80s, with occasional detours into country and R&B. The Emotions, a Texas Country Band known for pure entertainment across the state, perform songs from Country to Rock and everything in between. Both The Emotions and Velcro Pygmies will play on Saturday of the Fair. The weekend will finish up with Los Terribles Del Norte, on the Bud Light Stage, the Latin Grammy award winning group is known for their quality Norteño sound and high regard for excellent music.

The crowds will be entertained by great music, new attractions and delicious food. “We are very excited to be hosting the Brazos Valley Fair and Rodeo on the same weekend as the Alabama/Texas A&M Football Game this year” stated Tom Quarles, General Manager of the Fair, “It is a great opportunity for fans to have some extra fun while in town for the weekend. The fact that the Fair runs for three days allows guests to enjoy the Fair and still have plenty of time for midnight yell, tailgating and watching the game, which will also be broadcast at the Fair in our indoor tailgating area.” With the slogan “More than you Imagined” it really offers something for everyone.
