It was 4:45 p.m. and the crowd was just rolling in as Lubbock local Ross Cooper opened the second big day at JAB Fest with a solid performance.

I had the opportunity to introduce his set, and it was easy to see day two of JAB Fest 2017 was off to a great start. The up-and-coming country singer and former bronc rider (yes, really) is currently working on a new album, I Rode the Wild Horses. After Cooper's set at JAB Fest, it's safe to say he's got more ears perked up for his new music.
