Jimmie Vaughan to play with UT band on Thanksgiving

Posted November 18th, 2015


Austin Blues guitarist Jimmie Vaughan will take the field with the University of Texas Longhorn band during halftime of the University of Texas’ football game with Texas Tech on Thanksgiving.

It’s the first time a hometown pop music performer has performed with the band as part of its halftime show. Similar occasions may follow in the coming year as the UT athletics department looks to draw more local music into its events.

Which Austin-based artist would you like to see included with UT’s band in the future?
