20th Annual Red Poppy Festival Announces Saturday Night Headliner

We are thrilled to announce that Pat Green is The Red Poppy Festival headliner for Saturday night’s concert, the evening of April 27! Pat Green is an extremely talented country singer whose hits include the ever popular “Wave on Wave.” “After rising through Texas’ college-town and dancehall scene years ago, Green earned himself major-label support in Nashville and became the poster child of Texas music for a whole generation of fans. His list of achievements includes over 2 million albums sold, three Grammy nominations and a sold out Houston Astrodome.” Share your excitement by using the hashtag #RedPoppy2019 on social media, and stay current with schedule updates at redpoppyfestival.com.
