Just got back from attending a media luncheon with the American Cancer Society at the Red Road Winery for a upcoming major event announcement. The American Cancer Society is proud to present the first-ever Stateline Stampede Cattle Baron's Ball Saturday, October 5 starting at 7 p.m. at Bandana Ranch located off Farm to Market road 1397 Texarkana, Texas.

According to co-chairman Linda Lilly these type of events have been going on for a number of years in cities all across the U.S. Lilly said, "we are really excited about bringing a first scale fundraising event of this caliber to Texarkana to help raise money for the American Cancer Society."

The theme of this year's Cattle Baron's Ball is 'Boots, Bangles, & Bandanas.' The event will feature a live auction, a full scale dinner, and a live concert provided by Grammy nominees Emerson Drive. The band had hits with  Fall Into Me" "I Should Be Sleeping" and their first number one single with "Moments" in 2008. Emerson Drive also won the ACM Top Vocal Group of the Year in 2007. The band is expected to be releasing a brand new album in October of this year.

There will also be two other bands scheduled to play that evening including new artist Sam Shupak and new band Dagnabbit.
