Pat Green and Cory Morrow
Pat Green sold more than 200,000 independently released records (a Miller Lite sponsorship didn't hurt) before hooking up with major labels and trying to bust through the mainstream. A legitimate star in Texas who has sold out the Astrodome, Green toes the line between contemporary country and modern rock. Robert Earl Keen fans dig his Texas troubadour vibes, but Green's proletariat appeal is universal enough that even Dave Matthews has brought him aboard for a few tour dates. He'll join fellow Mellencamp-worshipper Cory Morrow for back-to-back rowdy nights at the Granada.
