Kix Brooks will rock OilPatch Festival

Kix Brooks Formerly of Brooks & Dunn to Headline 
July 4 Summer OilPatch Festival in Drumright, OK
Annual Day-Long Concert and Lifestyle Event to Include Special Guest Star Shawna Russell, Featured Artist LiveWire and Others

TN (June 26, 2012)  – Country star, Kix Brooks, formerly of the
world-famous duo Brooks & Dunn, is set to headline the “Summer
OilPatch Festival” at the Sellers Ranch in Drumright, Oklahoma, on
Wednesday, July 4, 2012. Gates open at 11:00 a.m. Admission is free to
the public and lawn chairs are welcome.
The family-friendly annual day-long concert and lifestyle event will also include special guest star, Country singer/songwriter Shawna Russell (whose latest single “Sounds Like A Party” has been chosen as the official theme song of this year’s show), along with featured artist LiveWire, plus the Flat River Band, Bo Phillips and the Red Dirt Rangers.
One of Oklahoma’s most unique entertainment experiences, the Summer OilPatch Festival
has grown into one of the state’s largest and most diverse Independence
Day events. In addition to the music, it includes a special children’s
fair area, classic cars and motorcycles, and a variety of entertainers
including clowns, stilt walkers, skydivers and jugglers, plus helicopter
landings and a huge fireworks display. The show is co-sponsored by Keystone Gas Corporation, Pacer Energy Marketing and Budweiser.
“Bring the whole family. There will be great music and great food,” says Rick Sellers, President of Keystone Gas Corporation, co-sponsor and organizer of the event. “We’ll serve barbeque sandwiches and hamburgers until the buns are gone. Oh, and we’ve ordered a semi-truck load of those!”
Sellers, a local philanthropist and community booster for the city of Drumright and the surrounding Cimarron Valley
area of Oklahoma has taken the show from a small company party to a
large-scale concert event. Since 2008, Sellers has booked nationally
recognized recording artists to headline the event, including
Pop/Country icon, B.J. Thomas, Classic Rockers, Head East and award-winning Country vocal band, Ricochet. With the addition of Brooks to this year’s lineup, the attendance at the 2011 Summer OilPatch Festival is expected to jump significantly from prior years.
Brooks spent 20+ years as half of Brooks & Dunn, the most successful duo in the history of Country Music, and is currently promoting his solo single “New To This Town,” which features a guest appearance by Eagles guitarist and solo artist, Joe Walsh.
Summer OilPatch Festival also provides a large platform for Sellers to
promote rising homegrown recording artists and performers, including
Russell, an Oklahoma singer who has graduated from opening act to
featured artist over the past five years. During that time, she has
released two albums and garnered national and international radio
airplay and critical acclaim in publications such as Maverick and Country Weekly.
Country band, LiveWire, who debuted at the show in 2011, has released
several successful radio singles in the U.S. and Europe in the past year
and drawn national attention in with their video and single for “Miracle Of The Human Spirit,”
which benefits tornado victims in their hometown of Joplin, Mo. Two
other acts returning this year are the Nashville-based Flat River Band
which features three brothers whose sibling harmony-driven sound
combines Country, Americana and Bluegrass influences, and local “Red
Dirt” music favorite, Phillips, who is presently winning fans on the
Texas Music charts. Making their debut this year are the Red Dirt
Rangers. Since forming in the late-80’s in Stillwater, the group has
carried the torch for a growing musical style that has spawned such
famous performers as Cross Canadian Ragweed, Jason Boland and The Stragglers and others.
Entertainment booking and publicity services for the Summer OilPatch Festival are provided by Clif Doyal of the Clif Doyal Agency and CDA Promotions-Nashville.
