Every year, the Lone Star Jam attracts larger crowds and a more impressive list of performers. Last year’s headliners included Randy Rogers Band, Josh Abbott Band and Stoney LaRue.

This year, Texas country music fans can double their listening pleasure as the festival expands from one day to two. Thousands will set their blankets down on the LBJ Library Lawn on the University of Texas campus to see 20 artists perform on two stages the weekend of Saturday, May 4 and Sunday, May 5.

The lineup, which includes a who’s who of Texas country bands and singers, was released Monday. Lone Star Jam 2013 features returning favorites, including Stoney LaRue; Texas country staples like Cory Morrow and Roger Creager; and local crossover artist, Bob Schneider.

The full lineup includes:

Saturday, May 4:
Stoney LaRue
Reckless Kelly

Charlie Robison
Whiskey Myers
Granger Smith

William Clark Green

Sunday May 5:

As if that list wasn’t enough to get your toes tappin’, one more Saturday headliner and two more Sunday headliners have yet to be announced.
