Hearne, a Dallas native, has had a long career not only solo, but also with his band South by Southwest and as a member of Michael Martin Murphy’s band back in the ’80s. He’s written songs for the likes of Jerry Jeff Walker, Gary P. Nunn and Johnny Rodriguez.

Courville's caters many food items

Big Rich Courville’s name is synonymous with everything that is good and that tastes good in Southeast Texas. If you lived in a box, odds are you would still know who he is because most likely, by gift or by commerce, he has fed you at some point.

Storms, floods, charity auctions, fundraisers or perhaps at his venue on College, Big Rich Courville, it seems, is always there for us. Now it’s our turn and time to remember those who are always here for us when we need them by supporting our local businesses.
