THE WOODLANDS, TX – Dosey Doe - The Big Barn is already reveling in the response it’s received from the music mecca’s announcement that it will be hosting the Big As Texas Music & Food Festival next spring. The festival is planned to be the largest outdoor festival in Texas. But owner Steve Said and his crew have decided it’s never too early to start preparing for such a huge event, and have put together a massive pre-festival music competition starting next week.

The Big as Texas Throwdown starts next week

The Big As Texas Throwdown starts Round 1 on Tuesday and Wednesday, November 7 - 8, and there are still slots for competitors and audience members / judges alike. The competition will consist of four bands each night performing on Dosey Doe’s legendary stage and will run from 7 p.m. - 9 p.m., with doors opening at 6 p.m. The sets are 25 minutes each.

“The kitchen is also open each night, so make a night of it and help these guys win a chance to show the world their talent,” said Steve Said.

The throwdown will be an incredible battle of the bands, a country music competition that will allow two local bands the chance of a lifetime. These up-and-coming local artists will love your support and vote – in-person attendee voting is part of the decision-making process of picking winners. Tickets to each round of the throwdown are only $10 each.

“This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for local bands to not only showcase their talent on the legendary Dosey Doe Big Barn stage during the competition but they could also get the unprecedented opportunity to perform in front of a huge audience at the Big As Texas Music Festival. Help these guys advance their music careers,” said Steve Said.

Though slots filled rapidly for the throwdown, interested musicians can still email their band contact info and press kit to to be considered.

“We are excited for the chance for local talent to compete for two slots on The Big As Texas Festival stage where an estimated 50,000 country fans will see them,” said Steve Said.
