Born and raised in Maypearl, Texas, country music singer/songwriter Bart Crow made his first attempts to write songs while in the United States Army and started first performing live while studying at Tarleton State University in Stephenville, TX.

With a sound all his own, Crow produces an ever-evolving flow of Red Dirt, Texas Country and Americana music. Crow has put together an impressive track record as a recording artist, having lofted six No. 1 singles onto the Texas Music Chart – one of which, “Wear My Ring,” sold over 165,000 copies. He has sold over 40,000 albums, released eight self-co-produced records in just over a decade, including Dandelion, which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard‘s Heatseekers South Central chart. He’s been cheered in Country Weekly, on CMT, and has been named one of Rolling Stones “artists you need to know”.

Crow is also a dedicated husband and father with a passion for supporting our nation’s Veterans. “Being a Veteran I will always pay homage to our brothers and sisters who heed the call to volunteer and preserve our peace and freedom,” says Crow. He displays this sentiment in his self-penned song “Broken” from album “Heartworn Tragedy”.

Bart Crow has partnered with True Grit Talent Agency. The True Grit roster includes Cody Jinks, Sunny Sweeney, Whitey Morgan, Ward Davis & many more noteworthy acts.

With tours booked across the country and many more dates to be released along the way. Crow’s latest release, “I’m Not Finished,” caught much attention throughout the music scene, with new music on the way.

Crow returns to Mercury Lounge, Wednesday, 2/17 for a limited capacity show. In anticipation of the upcoming barnburner, MLL got the chance to ask Bart a few questions about touring. Read up and join us for an intimate showcase of one of Texas Country's hardest working performers. Tickets can be purchased in advance at

Q: Touring tends to mean a lot of meals adjacent to an interstate. Best roadside chain breakfast?

A: Waffle House


Q: Who has better coffee, Pilot or Loves?

A: Loves


Q: Ever bought an item of clothing at a truck stop? If yes, please tell us about it.

A:Oh my gosh yes. An amazing majestic wolf on a mountain top t-shirt.


Q: Mercury Lounge typically has a "3 Cover Song Max" rule which came about because of the abuse of "Wagon Wheel", however you're known to have a few great covers in your arsenal, "Guitars & Cadillacs" as an example, so that rule has been known to bend. Can folks expect anything special at your upcoming show along these lines?

A: Great rule and we definitely won’t break it!!! But it wouldn’t surprise me to hear a Tom Petty tune maybe maybe...


Q: Best show ever and why?

A: Grand Ole Opry. It probably needs no explanation as you can imagine, but for me I feel it was a once in a lifetime experience.

Thanks for the questions & we look forward to getting back to Mercury!!!
