Chuck Ligon currently serves as VP of Entertainment on the Board of Directors.

Chuck Ligon is a musician born and raised in Texas…and damn proud of it! Having a father that grew up in Lubbock, Texas and played bass in a 1950’s rock band that toured with Buddy Holly, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Waylon Jennings, it was only natural that Chuck would get an early start playing music. After receiving his first guitar at the age of 10, Chuck knew that he was destined to play in a band. As a self-taught guitar player, Chuck quickly progressed from strumming along on his Martin acoustic to ripping leads on his ’77 Fender Strat. In high school, Chuck formed a band named “Bogus” that began playing private parties and dances at JJ Pearce High School in Richardson, Texas. After high school, Chuck played bass in “The Touch”, which was a new wave college band that played fraternity and sorority parties, and he did a little studio work on the side. But after marrying his high school sweetheart Kim, the guitar was put away, and Chuck focused on a career in real estate. After a few years, they started a family and Chuck thought his music days were gone forever.

But many years later, in an odd twist of fate, the turn of events surrounding Chuck’s birthday would change everything. You see Kim surprised Chuck with a Harley, and after researching the best places to ride in Texas, they decided to head to the Hill Country…and specifically to Luckenbach, Texas. When Chuck and Kim began touring the Hill Country on their Harley, they discovered some great watering holes. They also discovered the exploding Texas Country/Red Dirt music scene. After meeting Jimmy Lee Jones in Luckenbach, and hearing his style of Texas Country music, Chuck’s interest in music was rekindled. So after dusting off his guitar, and playing a few “open mic” nights, Chuck decided it was time to jump back in and start a band. So with Scott Weidenfeller and Bill Prince, the band “Tex Fletcher” was formed, which later included Gene Perry and Cody Frink. Tex Fletcher went on to play numerous local venues, private events, and festivals. In 2011, Tex Fletcher opened for Roger Creager and Jack Ingram at the Wildflower Music Festival. In 2012, Tex Fletcher was invited back to Wildflower to open for Neal McCoy and Mark Chesnutt.

Chuck recently released a new original EP that includes crowd favorites You Talked Me Into Lazy, Down The Road, Twisted, Bound To Know, and the new Texas anthem Come And Take It!
