Blue Water Highway Band's full lineup

Taking their name from a stretch of road along the Texas Gulf Coast, Blue Water Highway Band are establishing themselves as a powerful voice in Texas music. Though still new to many ears, the group is already being recognized for their melodic harmonies, smart lyrics, and top-notch musicianship.

Band members carry influences as wide as Texas, ranging from classically trained Opera to Jazz, which creates a unique sound on their debut full-length album "Things We Carry." The 6-piece group, limited to 5 members temporarily due to Catherine Clarke's illness, will perform Saturday Sept 19th at Rally Round Greenville. Blue Water's primary songwriters and vocalists Zack Kibbodeaux and Greg Essington checked in from Kyle for an in-depth discussion with Notably Texan.

Notably Texan is heard weekdays from Noon - 3pm on KETR.

Born in Dallas, Texas, Matt moved to the Sulphur Springs area in 1990 and settled in Commerce shortly thereafter. Having dreamed of working in radio since childhood, he began working at KETR while taking Radio-Television courses at Texas A&M University-Commerce in 1993. Matt has transitioned from a part-time worker and pupil of KETR, to the station’s Chief Announcer/Producer and supervisor of student broadcasters. A familiar voice of 88-9 KETR, Matt has hosted such shows as The Late Nite Lion, and can currently be heard as host of Notably Texan.
