Bob and Kelli Phillips host Texas Country Reporter, now in its 50th year on TV. The show explores people from all walks of life who embody Texan values and culture.

Texas Country Reporter has been on the air longer than any other independently produced TV show in American history.

Throughout the concert, Bob and Kelli will narrate stories of Texas history, culture, and tales from their half-century of travels.
