This year we celebrate and honor the rich Railroad History of Texarkana with the 8th annual Railfest event this Saturday.

The 2019 Railfest features singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Parker McCollum with special guest the Dusty Rose Band. The Dusty Rose band will open the show at 7 p.m., followed by Parker hitting the stage at 9 p.m.

The Austin-based and Conroe native is always accompanied by an exciting stage band and has no problem satisfying Red Dirt Texas Country fans while adding a bluesy Americana flair to his presentation, without losing a single beat. An accomplished violinist, Parker picked up the guitar at 13-year-old and the harmonica at 15-year-old and has never looked back.
