There's nothing quite like live music and fun under the stars here in West Texas. That's why we thought it was only fitting that this event was set for the outdoors at the Back Porch of Texas.

So make plans now to join us for the Inaugural West Texas Food Truck Festival featuring the legendary rock band .38 Special.

I'll be honest, there's no one more excited about this event than me. First off, I love food. I love lots of food and the Abilene area is home to some of the greatest food trucks anywhere. Second, and most importantly, .38 Special is one of my favorite bands ever and one of the few remaining on my live music bucket list.

Preale tickets will go on sale this Friday, July 20th, via, (877) 990-7882 and Townsquare Media studios at 3911 South 1st. Public on sale begins Saturday at 10am.

Ticket prices will range from $19-$49, plus service fees. Kids 12 and under are only $10.

We'll be giving away a bunch of tickets too, so make sure you have our app installed on your smartphone (with notifications on) for chances to win.
