Go West for Music, Fun at Jordan Ranch April 21

Country Music Association award-winning artists Maddie & Tae will perform at the Better Out West Fest event happening 3-7 p.m. Saturday, April 21. The event is free and open to the public.

(Fulshear, Texas – April 11, 2018)   Thrill seekers and music lovers alike will find what they seek at the Better Out West Fest at Jordan Ranch 3 to 7 p.m. Saturday, April 21.

The activities in the Fulshear community get underway at The Shed, 30757 Jordan Crossing, with a day of family adventure zip lining across the community, rock climbing, running an obstacle course and mechanical bull riding. Activities for younger children will include a bounce house, balloon artist and more.

“We are thrilled to be able to bring the public a taste of the Jordan Ranch lifestyle,” said Steve Sams, general manager for Jordan Ranch. “We are an active, family-oriented community with a hospitable vibe. We invite everyone to come out for an afternoon of fun and to bring lawn chairs or their favorite blankets and hang out with us in the evening to enjoy live music.”

At 5 p.m. attendees can boot scoot to the event lawn for an outdoor concert featuring CMA award-winning artists Maddie & Tae.

The pair, from Texas and Oklahoma, respectively, were awarded by the Country Music Association in 2015 for Video of the Year. They also swept the 2016 Radio Disney Music Awards, winning both Favorite Country Artist and Favorite Country Song for “Fly.” They have previously been nominated for ACM, CMT and CMA Awards.

Opening for the duo will be Jay Allen. The singer and songwriter scored his first hit single, “Sounds Good to Me,” when he released a five-song EP last year. He also has worked with ACM-nominated songwriter Phil Barton and Lindsay Rimes.

Throughout the day, adventure seekers will have opportunities to purchase food truck fare from popular Houston mobile restaurants Licha’s Food Truck, Smok’d It Up BBQ, Truck on the Bayou, Craft Burger, SheCupcakes Bake Shop and The Shiver Shack. Beer will be available for adults 21 and up.

The Better Out West Fest is one of the many events going on now during the April Drools Home Tour. At Jordan Ranch, the public also is invited to grab dinner and a movie at The Shed from 5:30-8:30 p.m. at Bite Nite Friday on April 13.
