Favorites of the Texas Country circuit — including trail-tested troubadour Jake Kellen — will headline the “Red, White & Badass” concert on Saturday, March 29 in downtown San Marcos.

The show will benefit the American Widow Project, a Buda-based nonprofit founded by Taryn Davis, a longtime San Marcos resident whose husband, Cpl. Michael Davis, died in combat in Iraq seven years ago. The organization supports widows of military service members killed in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars.

Doors will open at 4:30 p.m. at The Marc, 120 E. San Antonio Street. Tickets are $10-$15 with a $5 military discount.

Raised in the tiny Panhandle town of Olton, Kellen has four full-length CDs under his belt and nine singles that ventured into Country Top 40 on Texas airwaves. Other performers include the JJ Garrett Band, Dry River Religion, Landon Bullard and The Hill Country Gentlemen.

The benefit is sponsored by Bobcat Nation Sports Bar & Grill, Wildwood Apartments and Dos Equis with support from  local businesses like Mocas & Javas, Grin’s Restaurant, The Tap Room and The Root Cellar.
