Wichita Riverfest

Texas on Tour opened the curtains on the 2010 road show at Riverfest in Wichita, Kansas. People flock every year to Riverfest for good times and great music. At Texas on Tour we were able to supply them with both.

The smooth guitar riffs and vocals of Austin, Texas native Ryan Harkrider filled the air of downtown Wichita from our stage. Ryan brought his authentic Austin sound from the "Live Music Capital of the World" all the way to Riverfest. A fan named Cookie approached Ryan and she told him that she had written a song, but didn't have a melody to go with it. Ryan solved that problem quickly. In a matter of minutes Ryan had composed a song to fit her lyrics perfectly. After a short rehearsal, Cookie and Ryan were ready to perform.

With Cookie on the mic and Ryan backing her up on lead guitar. The song named "Going to Nashville" turned out to be a hit with everyone in attendance. A fitting title for the song considering Nashville is stop #2 on our trip throughout the U.S. spreading the good news about Texas and all it has to offer. Stay tuned to read more about the experiences from the road with Texas on Tour.
