The 87th East Texas Yamboree is proud to present our featured headliner for this year's Barn Dance our own Country Music Legend; Pat Green.

Born in San Antonio, Texas, Pat Green has firmly established himself as a Texas legend with his evocative blend of traditional and modern country music. He started his musical career playing at local bars while attending Texas Tech University, quickly capturing the hearts of listeners with his authentic sound and heartfelt storytelling. His debut album, Dancehall Dreamer, released in 1995, marked the beginning of a celebrated journey that would deeply embed him in the fabric of Texas music culture. Pat Green’s influence in Texas country music is underscored by a career that spans over two decades, with albums like Three Days and the gold-certified Wave on Wave capturing the essence of Texas life and propelling him to national acclaim. These albums have not only brought critical acclaim but also resonated broadly, leading to three Grammy nominations and a consistent presence on the Billboard country charts. Green now sits with over 2 million albums sold and over 200 million career streams. Known for his profound Texas pride, Green’s songs often explore themes deeply rooted in Texas culture, reflecting his own experiences and the lives of those around him. His 13 #1’s at Texas Radio, collaborations with fellow Texan artists, including Lyle Lovett and Willie Nelson, and selling out the Houston Astrodome have further solidified his legacy as a cornerstone of Texas music.

Adding to his storied career, Pat Green just released a new song titled "Elvis in Memphis," which promises to enchant listeners with its rich narrative and melodious charm. Alongside his creative endeavors, Green continues to tour extensively across the United States, bringing his iconic music to fans old and new.

Beyond his music, Pat Green is a dedicated philanthropist, actively supporting music education and advocating for “underdog” charities through the Pat Green Foundation. His enduring contributions to his community and his ability to resonate with fans through his music have cemented his status as a beloved figure and a true Texas legend.
