Gary P. Nunn starring at Nocona Nights’ Cowboy Christmas Ball 2014

Gary P. will headline our Cowboy Christmas Ball on Saturday, December 13, 2014.  This event will be held at “The V”, the VFW at 100 Baylor Street, Nocona.  It’s a new beautiful building adding to the music scene in Nocona.  Doors open at 6; dinner about 6:30; concert about 7:15.  Unfortunately tickets have been sold out to Patrons/Season Ticket Holders.

If you’ve been following Nocona Nights, you’ve seen the array of outstanding entertainers we’ve featured here.  If you wish to be a part of this next year, call the Nocona Chamber of Commerce at 940 825 3526 or email nellann@nocona.org to get your name on the waiting list for next year.  For the last eight years we’ve sold out a year in advance to Patrons, so get on the list early if you’d like to enjoy the finest Texas music north of Austin.

Here’s a short bio of Gary P.:

Gary P. Nunn has been TAKING TEXAS TO THE COUNTRY and Texas country to the world for some 40 years now, establishing himself as an icon of Lone Star music. A founding father of the progressive country movement out of Austin in the 1970s that changed the face of popular music, Nunn is also an independent music pioneer who continues to oversee his own record label and song publishing companies, manage his own career (with the help of his wife Ruth), and play most every weekend at top music venues throughout Texas and beyond. His composition “London Homesick Blues” — with its internationally known “I wanna go home with the Armadillo” chorus — is a signature Texas country song that was the theme for the PBS concert TV show “Austin City Limits” for nearly three decades. It’s no wonder that All Music Guide hails him as “a Texas music institution.”
