The stars at night will be big and bright deep in the heart of Decatur this summer.

This week, Decatur Main Street announced a pair of must-see events in June and July – one that will bring a little local nostalgia and blues, and the other some headlining honky tonk.

Moses Snow

In June, Decatur’s own king of rock ‘n’ roll, Moses Snow, will kick of the Decatur Sun and Sound events with a Vegas stars night.

The kickoff event, June 21, at the Decatur Visitors Center will feature a vintage evening for the whole family, with Snow, a world renowned Elvis tribute artist, and cover band Vegas Stars.

Snow, a teenager from Decatur and top Elvis tribute artist, will take a break from his tour that has taken him overseas to Germany and beyond to perform in downtown during the night that is expected to have visitors dancing through the decades.

Vintage cars and blue suede shoes are welcome. State Street will be closed to insure the safest show possible, according to the announcement.

Not to be outdone, Decatur Sun and Sound will roar back to life in July to the tunes of red dirt country star Stoney LaRue.

Austin Jackson

LaRue, who’s sold more than one million albums since 2003, is known for his red dirt sound and high energy live concerts with fans singing along to songs such as “Feet Don’t Touch The Ground”, “Look At Me Fly,” and “Oklahoma Breakdown”

LaRue and company, including Fort Worth country singer Jarrod Morris, will come to town July 19, as they bring their country twang to the Decatur Square. The night will also be Jeep Night and feature cool cars, cold drinks and food trucks.
