It’s such a simple equation: You get free music and a chance to have some fine barbecue while making sure that others have food to put on their table.
That’s what the popular Ancira Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram 2014 Live Music Series at The County Line, 10101 I-10 W., benefiting the San Antonio Food Bank is all about. And the music returns on Wednesday with Dirty River Boys.
Now in its 14th year, the 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, The Rick Cavender Band and many more.

The live music series is free; however, all who attend are asked to make a food or monetary donation to the San Antonio Food Bank. Since it started, the series has raised more than 820,000 pounds of food for the San Antonio Food Bank; last year’s music series alone raised almost 105,000 pounds of food for the Food Bank, which translates into more than 81,000 meals to those in need in our community. The Texas Restaurant Association just named this County Line a winner of its annual Restaurant Neighbor Award—one of only three in the state and the only one in San Antonio—for its charitable support and dedication to improving their local communities through its music series and donations to the Food Bank.
“Summer is the hardest time for the San Antonio Food Bank as the need in our 16 county service area grows with children out of school and the elderly facing increased utility bills while our donations from the public decrease,” says Eric Cooper, San Antonio Food Bank president and CEO. “The County Line Music Series is tremendously helpful filling that gap and makes sure that those in need have food on their table.”
The free music concerts are held every Wednesday night from 6:30 – 10 p.m. from April 2 through July 30 at the I-10 location, which is between the Wurzbach and Huebner Road exits, near the Colonnade). Held on the restaurant’s open-air patio, the opening act comes on at 6:30 p.m.; the headliner plays from 8 – 10 p.m. Concerts are held rain or shine. Drink specials run from 3 to 7 p.m. on concert days in the bar.
Sponsors thus far include Ancira Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram; Y-100; Budweiser; Dulce Vida; Rebecca Creek; Enchanted Rock Vodka; Twilight Services; Comfort Air/Primo Plumbing; Red Bull; Ozarka; and Pure Party Ice.
