The Lineup



Quietly and with a growing former regional Texas reach, Josh Grider and Drew Kennedy (best friends and singer/songwriters) have written some of the smartest and richest music coming out of the Lone Star State over the last decade or so. They travel and play shows together frequently and have dubbed themselves previously unofficially as the Topo Chico Cowboys.

Says Grider, "The Topo Chico Cowboys are what Drew Kennedy and I are calling our side project. We've been playing shows together for years, but we finally found a cool name and recorded some new original material together.

The sound and stories of these talented musicians is something you don't want to miss, as this is sure to be a show to remember! You can their individual bios on our artist page.


She stems from a small town in Texas, not much larger than Nixon, but there is nothing small about her singer/songwriter skills! She has the accolades to back that up as she’s been deemed Texas Country Music Association's (TCMA) Female Vocalist of the Year three years in a row (2017-2019) with a nomination for this year’s upcoming award show.

Tucker also has a few crowns from the East Texas Music Awards (ETX) as in 2017 she won Songwriter of the Year, Song of the Year, Video of the Year and Female Vocalist of the Year. We could go on, but I think you’ve gotten the point by now. Holly Tucker is one hell of a songwriter!

This award winning songwriter will perform at the Camp House for her first time on October 16, 2021


Alex Coba was the kind of kid that grew up taking naps in his mom’s guitar case. Music was all around him in the South Texas heat along the Rio Grande. He is proof that sometimes a meandering path and a penchant for trying things is the exact right recipe for a soulful songwriter to emerge as boundless as the landscape he grew up around. 

From the rich traditions of Tejano Music of South Texas to the 70’s folk and harmony rich rock and roll in his parent’s collection, music was the heartbeat of Coba’s family life early on. School and sports took him across the country to Indiana but music followed him there; he played coffee houses and parties, solo and in bands as an undergrad. The Harlingen, Texas area native now based in Houston is recording his debut album, a literal lifetime in the making for the songwriter whose life story, while still in the making, is undeniable fodder for interesting, moving songs driven by heart and grounded in strong roots.

Alex Coba will make his second appearance at the Camp House, performing October 16, 2021.


JAM or John Arthur Martinez is an Austin native and American country music artist who might look familiar. Martinez finished 2nd place on the first season of the USA Network talent show Nashville Star.

From the Sixth Street clubs in his birthplace of Austin, Texas to the Alpine festivals in Switzerland, from music venues in Paris, France to the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, John Arthur Martinez has proven his music grades on stages all over. He acknowledges that he's among the fortunate few that can make a living doing what they love, "I write, record, and perform songs. And, in doing so, I bare my soul, meet new souls, and see the world." He's celebrating the release of For the Love of Western Swing (& Other Love Songs), his 14th album of original music--yes, 14th. The Academy of Western Artists awarded the title track Western Swing, Song of the Year honors on August 13, 2020. 

John Arthur Martinez will perform at the Camp House for his first time on October 16, 2021.
