Want to kickoff your 4th of July weekend with a bang?  Nothing like some good ol' country music with Texas artist Jason Boland and The Stragglers this Saturday, July 1, at Scottie's Grill in Texarkana.

Boland formed the band back in 1998 and released their first album Pearl Snaps the following year in 1999. Playing the red dirt scene all across Texas, the Oklahoma native started growing a fan base of followers that are still with him today and has gained some new fans along the way. If you enjoy the traditional style of country that is almost extinct today, Boland brings that sound to the forefront. Whether it be the outlaw movement sound that made Willie and Waylon famous or just the barroom honky tonk style of music. You can bet Jason Boland and The Stragglers make you long for those days when country music was country. In fact, they still use a pedal steel guitar and fiddle in their band.

When "Pearl Snaps" was released as a single in 1999, it fast became their signature song and landed them on the Texas Music Charts. His current album Squelch was released in 2015 and featured the song "Break 19," which draws resemblance to a Waylon Jennings record.

Here's a recent video shot at a performance at MusicFest  2016.

Texarkana's local favorite the Dusty Rose Band will be opening for Jason Boland at 7PM.
