"The Voice" Star Luke Wade Performs in Downtown San Angelo Tonight:

Wade is a graduate of Tarleton State University where he became acquainted with the Texas music scene. At Tarleton, the Texas music scene is almost exclusively Texas country. Before The Voice, Wade won the Larry Joe Taylor songwriting competition at the regionally significant nearby music festival.

Wade sees the Texas country scene changing somewhat over the past three or four years. “In a positive way,” he said. “I think that the scene is not trying to be exclusively for one thing or the other. Wade said it’s allowing other musical influences to be introduced. Wade points to the playlist at Fort Worth’s The Ranch 95.9 FM. The radio station that used to brag about being the home of “Texans, outlaws and legends”, is becoming more diverse, he said. “They’re playing a lot of Americana stuff,” Wade said. The Texas music radio stations and music venues have recognized what people today want, and the Texas music scene is delivering, he said. “I don’t think Texas country is headed towards Nashville, but I do think the scene is inviting in other sounds to freshen it up,” Wade said.

One year ago today, a group of my friends got on stage with me and helped close out the night with Ghost on a Wire. The next morning, I headed out to my first audition for The Voice not really knowing what to expect but knowing that no matter what happened, I had a great group of people to support me on this journey. I can’t thank all of you enough for all of your love and support this past year. Looking forward to what is still to come!
