San Antonio, TX (PRWEB) February 28, 2018
The “Ancira Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram 2018 Live Music Series at The County Line” that benefits the San Antonio Food Bank is back for its 18th year on Thursday nights. This very popular live music series will run from March 1 through July 26, 2018 at The County Line Bar-B-Q restaurant at 10101 IH-10 West (between the Wurzbach and Huebner Road exits, near the Colonnade). Concerts begin at 7:30 and run until 9 p.m.
A food booth will be available on the patio during concerts. Happy hour will run inside and outside of the restaurant, from 3 to 7 p.m. on concert days.
As always, this live music series is no cost. However, all who attend are asked to make a food or monetary donation to the San Antonio Food Bank. In 2015, the County Line was recognized by the San Antonio Food Bank for raising enough food to feed over 1 million people since the inception of the music series in 2001. In 2017 alone, it brought in a record breaking number of donations: $7,822.32 in cash and 2,386 lbs. of food, which equals 80,609 lbs. of food to feed the hungry in San Antonio area.
No cost parking is available at Hallmark College, less than one block away on IH-10 access road. Concerts are held rain or shine.
At the concerts, guests can enter a drawing for a trip for two to The Music Fest at Steamboat Springs, Colorado in January 2019; the drawing for that prize will be held during the last concert on July 26. Midway through the series, Rebecca Creek Radio will also give away a guitar signed by artists at The Music Fest at Steamboat Springs, held January, 2018.

“We are so inspired by the legacy of the ‘Rib King’ Randy Goss, and his dream to have a food-secure San Antonio. The County Line Music series helps provide meals for kids and seniors throughout the summer, the time when they are most at risk for hunger,” says Eric Cooper, President and CEO, San Antonio Food Bank.

"Besides feeding millions of people, with the promise to do more going forward, County Line has a deep history of community philanthropy," says Mike Crenwelge, General Manager of the IH-10 County Line location since 1980. "Even before we started this incredible donation campaign with the San Antonio Food Bank, we have been active donors to the Food Bank's Second Servings program from the 1980s to this day. When we started the music series, we made a commitment to hold a no cost, family event that would benefit the Food Bank. Although the music series has evolved in many ways since we started it 17 years ago, we have always stayed true to our mission, and intend to keep it that way."
The County Line Live Music Series has featured some of the very best Texas and national country musicians such as Blake Shelton, Bart Crow Band, Kyle Park, Gary P. Nunn, Cory Morrow, Stoney LaRue, Randy Rogers, Jason Boland, Roger Creager, Wade Bowen, Pat Green, Aaron Watson, Radney Foster, Kevin Fowler, Bleu Edmondson and many more.
