Tailgate & Tunes


Here is the deal: summer is the best time of year, in my opinion. Why is summer the best, you ask? The answer is simple, because there is sunshine all the time, wonderful festivals, school’s out, and summer concerts. That last one is something we take seriously here in Chickasaw Country. Summer concerts are pure bliss and good for your soul.


On July 4th, Chickasaw Country hosted Tailgate & Tunes on Lake Texoma. We had two Oklahoma Red Dirt bands playing: The Damn Quails and Whiskey Myers. They both know how to put on a good show! Both of these bands have a huge local fan base; we had people from all over Oklahoma flocking to this concert to catch two of their favorite bands. Everyone was all atwitter about it (get it, all a-Twitter). Throughout the night you could see multiple fireworks shows, which made the perfect backdrop for a concert stage.


The Damn Quails have a unique sound. You don’t hear many bands like them on the radio. Their lead singer is also a storyteller. He gave a little explanation about each song before they preformed it.




Whiskey Myers, on the other hand, was a little less talk and a lot more action. They were loud, energetic, and the crowd was singing along to every word! If you want to know more about these two awesome bands check them out on Twitter. They rock on social media, too!






My dilemma: what does one wear to a summer concert? That is something that my girlfriends and I talk about frequently. Since this particular concert was close to the lake, there were a lot of bikinis under clothes. That night I saw sundresses, cowboy boots, and lots of jeans. Jeans in July, you ask? Yeah, in Oklahoma that’s a thing.

The weather could not have been more perfect for an outdoor concert. I’ll tell you one thing: it didn’t feel like July in Oklahoma. It was still hot, but the breeze really helped cool us down that evening. The cooler temperatures made wearing jeans and cowboy boots more enjoyable. I can tell you that from firsthand experience.

Make sure to keep an eye out for an announcement next spring. We hope to bring another summer concert your way! I hope that you can join us for a night filled with great music, fun, and dancing! In the meantime, make sure you check out Chickasaw Country’s plentiful concert venues.
