Facebook

The night East Texas has been waiting for, Party in the Dirt 2012 presented by KNUE is here! Tonight Gladewater and East Texas will be overtaken by Curtis Grimes, Charlie Robison, Jason Boland and David Allan Coe. As of right now, tickets are still available online just click here to buy yours. But when online ticket sales end, you’ll still be able to get yours at the gate. No coolers are allowed but beer will be sold at the show.

Let’s talk about East Texan Curtis Grimes, who is from Gilmer where he graduated from Harmony High School, and last year he took a chance (and ultimately the spotlight) on the debut season of NBC’s The Voice.

If you don’t remember Curtis and his battle round partner Emily Valentine ended their performance of Lady Antebellum’s “Need You Now” with a big ass kiss. It shocked people and left everyone talking.

But that’s what we’ve come to expect from the East Texan. When given the opportunity Curtis doesn’t shy away from the chance to shine. Much like when he shared the stage with one of Country Music’s biggest stars, Kenny Chesney. If he was nervous, no one watching knew it.

Well, Curtis stopped by Radio Texas Live recently and we talked about the big concert, he sang us a brand new song and Curtis and I ended up making a bet involving Mr. Coe, check out the audio.

The video for Curtis’s latest single “Irresponsible” is doing great on YouTube, now with over 100,000 views since being uploaded. And it’s not doing to bad on the Texas charts either — coming in this week at 21 on the Texas Music Chart and 22 on the Texas Regional Radio Report.

I don’t gamble very often but it seems like every time Curt stops by, I end up making a bet with him. This time we’ve got $20 on the line. The bet is whether or not David Allan Coe will do “something” on stage. What is the “something” press play to find out.

In yet another RTX-clusive, Curt left us with the live performance of a brand new song. It’s probably his most personal song to date. Press play on “Home to Me.”
