Classic country music legend performs in Pearland

Tony Booth in PearlandThe 15th Annual Tony Booth Day returns to Pearland on Saturday, May 1 at Billy’s Hall, 4070 Wells Drive. Booth along with a collection of country music artists bring a Texas dancehall vibe to Pearland during the annual event.

This year’s event features several performers including Darrell McCall, Mona McCall and Brian Collins. Additionally, local-talented performers include Tony Booth Band, Dana Rowan, Kari Hlavinka, Mary Dooley, Royce Melton, Shalane and Missy Brown on Saturday night’s line-up.

“Being able to perform our 15th annual event is a great honor. Having County Judge and Brazoria County Commissioners declare the first Saturday in May, Tony Booth Day in Brazoria County means a lot to me. I want to thank all the fans that show up for this event, it’s not possible without the fans,” according to Booth.

Inducted into the Texas Country Music Hall of Fame in 2014, Booth at 19 became familiar with the comment, “What they call country music today is not really country.” His style of music continues to be considered real country. In 1973 Booth was nominated for Male Vocalist of the Year by the Academy of Country Music along with Conway Twitty, Buck Owens, Merle Haggard, Ray Price and Charley Rich. The Tony Booth Band won Band of the Year from the Academy of Country Music 1970-1972.

Booth recorded 12 albums for United Artist, Capital, MGM and Heart of Texas. Hit records include Keys in the Mailbox, Lonesome 7-7203, Cinderella, When a Man Loves a Woman, Carwash Blues, Old Faithful, Happy Hour, Secret Love.
