Walker, Green to entertain Texas Inaugural night

January 4, 2011 4:56:46 AM PST
Texas-based musicians Clay Walker, Pat Green, the Eli Young Band and Bonnie Bishop are on the program at the evening celebration of the Texas Inaugural in Austin. GOP Gov. Rick Perry and Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst will be sworn in the morning of Jan. 18.

The nighttime celebration, at the Palmer Events Center, is by invitation only. Recommended attire is cocktail, not formal, as part of a toned-down celebration during hard economic times.

Inaugural committee leader Weisie Steen said Monday that the evening celebration will showcase "a few home-grown favorites" who have become household names.
