Charlie Pruitt Country Music Show

Charlie Pruitt Country Music Show

It’s a reunion like no other as the Charlie Pruitt Country Music Show returns for one night only on Saturday, Aug. 18, at the Jefferson Theatre in downtown Beaumont. It’s been 10 years since the last show was held.

The Charlie Pruitt Country Music Show was a staple of Southeast Texas entertainment for over 25 years. It was a safe, family-friendly environment where young entertainers could hone their craft and develop their performance skills outside of the bar scene.

Members of Pruitt’s original house band, led by an original collaborator on the show, Doug Childress, have decided to honor Pruitt with a reunion show, and Pruitt, who suffered a stroke years ago, is excited about returning.

Assembling the house band from the many years of musicians is in the hands of Britt Godwin and Sheryl Brocato. Godwin performed on the show as a youngster and has been a notable performer for many years in Southeast Texas.

Brocato and her husband, Benny, were in the show’s original house band, which was called the Blackwater Band. They recently formed Sheryl Brocato and Country Strong, of which Childress is also a member.

Also keeping with the original tradition of showcasing new talent, there will be a couple of performers that earned a spot on the show by auditioning last month.Southeast Texas native Robby Lynn will emcee the show. Lynn is the host of the television and radio show titled Sunday’s Kind of Country.

Tickets are $10 for adults, and $5 for seniors and children. They can be purchased online at Ticketmaster.com or at the door.Proceeds will benefit the Humane Society of Southeast Texas.
