TEXAS SOUNDS INTERNATIONAL COUNTRY MUSIC AWARDS 2014
Like everything else in this year’s summer festival, our music offering is bigger and more ambitious than has ever been done in Jefferson.
We are bringing top Country Music performers from Australia, Canada, Spain, South Africa, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and more!
Like all good things in life, it all starts with East Texas. We found a band online that calls themselves “East Texas” – They advertise as being from “The Deep South”… of Australia! When we communicated with them and recited all the reasons why “East Texas” should play in East Texas, they were intrigued. To make a long story short, it ends up that they are coming all the way from Adelaide, Australia, here, to participate in our Texas Sounds International Country Music Awards Festival.
Another exciting connection is with Karen Lee Batten from Canada, who was on the Canadian Idol show and is making it big now internationally.
Karen’s credits include:
2014 – #1 Canadian Country Album!
2004 thru 2006 – BC Female Vocalist of the Year
2003 – Beat out over 16,000 competitors to be in the top 11 Canadian Idol
2003 – BMG Gold Record from her recordings with Canadian Idol
