Dewey Wayne had this to say about the event: “I have worked with MoMs USA before and I truly believe in the great work they do. Like many of us, I was never in the armed forces, so I’m always looking for ways to support the men and women who put themselves in harm’s way for all of us here at home. This event, dubbed “Honky-Tonk Strikes Back” is not only great for MoMs USA, but also for local Houston independent country music”. The lineup includes: Billy Joe Shaver, Dewey Wayne, Big John Mills, Ziggy Moonshine and the Bootleggers, Christen Sawyer, Cody Kouba, Matt Harlan, Philip Griffin, Brant Croucher, Kathy Ross, Mike Amabile, Craig Kinsey of the Sideshow Tramps, Erik Logan, Amber Lynn Slack, David Harris, Adam Berry and the Wayward Souls, Tim Frailik, Hank Schyma of the Southern Backtones, Andrew Wade, Miss Leslie, Johnny Falstaff, Dunville, Presley Lewis, Dirt and Diesel, Heather Rayleen, Bryan Shayne, and Mitch Jacobs.
