After 20 years of live music in the Hill Country, owners of the Nutty Brown Cafe concluded their era with final performances Nov. 26 and 27. The two-night send-off performances included Pat Green and Kevin Fowler on Friday night and Randy Rogers Band, Stoney LaRue and Roger Creager on Saturday.
Over the past two decades, the amphitheater has hosted thousands of acts including Merle Haggard, Dwight Yoakam, Ice Cube, Hank Williams Jr., Dierks Bentley, Gary Clark Jr. and Blake Shelton.
Investors behind Nutty Brown Amphitheater are busy developing a venue in Round Rock at the former McNeil Park, with a planned 2022 opening. The new concept is expected to have a larger capacity than the former location, featuring a wide variety of genres.
H-E-B owns the property where the amphitheater currently sits and is expected to build a store there.
