The Texas Thunder Festival, featuring the Randy Rogers Band, Wade Bowen, Casey Donahew Band, Josh Abbott Band and Stoney LaRue, makes its debut in 2013. It is also part of an effort to raise funds to benefit the schools, first responders and victims of the explosion that took place at a fertilizer plant in West, Texas 10 days ago on April 17.

The event, which is modeled after the annual Country Thunder shows, takes place on May 17 through May 19 in Gardendale, Texas.

“For 13 years now, our band has been traveling I-35 and stopping in West, Texas along the way to sample the good food,” said Randy Rogers in a statement. “It’s become a staple on our tour. Now it’s time for us to give back.”

Event organizer Brian Andrews commented, “We are disheartened by the tragedy in West, Texas. Texans are passionate about their communities and upon hearing of this tragedy, the Texas music community reached out to lend a helping hand.”

Weekend passes are discounted at $65, with camping options starting at $110. Go here for more details and other pertinent information.
