Russ Varnell & Too Country

Location: R.A. Fountain

From our promo for this concert:

Russ Varnell and his Too Country Band is also a popular Fountain act. Varnell, of Black Creek, is a strong proponent of traditional, honky-tonk country music in the style of George Jones, Merle Haggard, Del Reeves, Hank Williams, Sr., and Buck Owens, with whom Varnell performed with at Owens’ legendary Crystal Palace in Bakersfield, Calif., annually in the last years of Owens’ life.

“Russ’s performances are really from a lost era of country music,” said Albright. “He’s got a good following and and an excellent band. And we always like seeing what new additions he has to his classic wardrobe that already includes outfits formerly belonging to Owens and Ernest Tubb.”
