For the 25th year, the Larry Joe Taylor Texas Music Festival returns to Stephenville, Texas. Melody Mountain Ranch will play host to great live music from some of Texas' best singers, songwriters and musicians is what the LJT Festival prides itself on year in and year out, but there's much more to the event. Camping, a barbecue cook-off, and this year, there will be a silent auction to benefit the victims of the fertilizer plant explosion in West, Texas.

Five-day and four-day tickets are sold out for the event, but you can still buy 3, 2 and 1-day passes for Thursday through Saturday.
