Casey Pilgreen (aka Big Pil) is a singer/songwriter, cowboy entertainer, rodeo announcer (PBR, CBR, Extreme Rodeo Bullfight Tour) from the North Texas / Southern Oklahoma area.
When Casey Pilgreen dropped the trumpet to play country, his goal was to become a singer and songwriter. Perseverance, a lot of live shows and a catalogue of songwriting is paying off for Casey. Casey grew up traveling to Nashville a lot with his family and one of his favorite places to hang out was the Grand Ole Opry. Casey takes the sound from the legends and mixes in some Red Dirt/Texas country for a lively show. Casey stays busy in North Texas and Oklahoma, with his longtime playing buddies, in his Carports and Arena Tour

Larry Joe Taylor and band will be the headliner act on Friday night to continue the second night of music and dancing at the Ranch. www.larryjoetaylor.com
Larry Joe Taylor is one of the grandest success stories in modern Texas music. Taylor has transitioned from a regular 9-to-5er to a full-time good timer. He writes, performs, produces, and promotes his own special brand of music. His annual Texas Music Festival is one of the hottest events in Texas and serves as the most prominent destination music festival for this scene of music. To look at Taylor’s unassuming demeanor, you might not guess that he’s an influential force in Texas music.
Prophets and Outlaws
Saturday, November 5, 2016 – TICC Main Stage - 8:00 - 10:00 pm
Prophets and Outlaws will be the headliner act on Saturday night to finish out three great nights of music and dancing at the Ranch. www.prophetsandoutlaws.com
Prophets and Outlaws is a southern rock band with soul. They have developed a sound that ties their passion for the Blues to their Country roots. Think TEXAS SOUL! You can find elements of the old “outlaw” music in their attitude and in the way they push the boundaries of today’s music. The Fort Worth Ranch radio station says, “Prophets and Outlaws is the kind of band that can bring the blues, rock n’ roll, the essence of Texas and then take you straight to church.”
For everyone’s information, if you are planning a September CASI cookoff, your information must be into Dorathy Williams, CASI Event Coordinator, by July 15; to appear in the August Trails. By CASI rules your September cookoff must be in the August Trails or IT IS TOO LATE and there are no waivers.
CASI Rule V.A.2: PUBLICIZE COOKOFF - All cookoffs MUST be publicized in the TERLINGUA TRAILS in the month prior to the entrance deadline. All cookoffs must be advertised as using "CASI rules" only. Any cookoff during month of September not publicized in the above manner will be guilty of a flagrant violation.
Happy 4th of July to you and your family. After all, it's a national holiday, a family day and there's usually a great picnic or cookoff somewhere with chili dogs and watermelon.
For our chili family veterans, such as myself and other board members, however, this holiday takes on a different meaning. You see, we had the privilege to serve our country along side men and women who were more than fellow Americans; they were our very good friends. And while we came back and can be with you here this holiday weekend, many of them did not. So it is in their honor that we share some 4th of July thoughts with you today. This is a great holiday and it honors our great nation. Independence Day. The 4th of July. This is perhaps, the most celebrated family holiday other than Thanksgiving and Christmas and that's appropriate. Because the 4th of July is all about our families. Our nation declared its independence in order for our families to live free – not just for one generation - but for future generations.
The 4th of July is truly our Independence Day – a day of celebration, or remembrance and of re-dedication to our country. We know that you share with us your pride in being an American. Our country has been criticized for being the richest country in the world. Let us suggest that we are proudly the richest country in the world – rich in our multi-cultural heritage, rich in our traditions, rich in our entrepreneurial spirit, our zest for the unknown and our reach into the future. The American colonies became the United States of America because of determination, self-discipline and most of all..... dreams. Our desire for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness is not a coined phrase, but a day-to-day philosophy celebrating free-expression, freedom of religion, freedom of speech and the right to be and remain free.
It is in this spirit of freedom that the 4th of July should be celebrated. Our soldiers and sailors are working all over the world to support the vision that became a reality over 200 years ago. They are willing to spend the 4th of July away from their families so that we can be with ours.
So we hope between the chili dogs, the BBQ, the cookoffs, the picnics and the fireworks, each of you will take a few moments to send a prayer of thanks. Thanks to our forefathers for their vision and thanks to our soldier and sailors around the world for their dedication. Happy 4th of July to each of you. May you continue to celebrate our freedom, in freedom.
