Bud Light Performance Center New Artist Showcase featured Texas Country artist Jake Ward on August 23rd.  The Corpus Christi native made his debut as a country artist at 2014  Larry Joe Taylor's Festival.  It was the first time he played his first single, 'Hit the Road.'

This song would eventually reach the top 30 and became one of the top 100 Texas radio songs of 2014.   Jake Ward has developed a reputation for high energy original songs, blending classic country with contemporary rock and rich harmonies. All of these qualities are on display in their live shows and recordings. Jake Ward has been called the #1 best kept secret on the Texas music scene.

It was a great night with an amazing night to finish off at the official after party headquarters at Dodge City!
