Stephenville, TX


The highly anticipated annual Larry Joe Taylor Texas Music Festival recently took place up in Stephenville, TX and amid the craziness was our own Steven Peters, who was able to capture some of the mayhem from the pit on the last day! Artists for that day included Denny Herrin, Walt Wilkins, Larry Joe Taylor himself, Eleven Hundred Springs, the Cottonwood Crows, Mark McKinney, Prophets and Outlaws, Kevin Fowler, and Roger Creager.

LJT has not always been the large 6-day event it is today. 30 years ago, venues for singer/songwriters were almost non-existent. Larry Joe wanted a place for he and his friends to play their own music and to provide a music-friendly environment where both the artists and fans felt a common ground. The first few festivals drew music fans from the 70s “outlaw” era. Many years later it became known as the springboard for many talented but unknown acts coupled with more well-known artists from the past and present. Today, the Taylors and their crew continue to look for new ways to improve the fan and VIP experience, enhance the traditions of camping out, picking, singing, and telling stories around a campfire, and showcasing the best original music in the nation.
