Wylie will indeed be wide awake July 5 for Bluegrass on Ballard, a free festival featuring top bands, a car show, arts and crafts and great food. The event in historic downtown Wylie breathes new life into the city’s longtime moniker and continues the tradition of drawing citizens and members of neighboring communities into the heart of the city.
Slated to perform are top bluegrass bands Danny Paisley and the Southern Grass, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Bluegrass Band, Grammy award-winning Brad Davis (performing with Texas & Tennessee), Purple Hulls, Phil Ferguson & Texas True, and Nickelville Road.
