Kree Harrison’s trip back to Woodville, Texas involved everything from a crawfish boil with her family and hometown mayor Ben Bythewood to a trip back to her childhood home with her sister to a surprise performance at the Tyler County Rodeo from the bed of a pickup truck to a hometown parade to a sold out evening concert at Ford Park in nearby Beaumont, Texas. Check out pictures and video from Kree’s hometown visit!
This post will update as more pictures, video, and reports come in.
Concert at Ford Park: Kree was accompanied by Misa Arriaga, who flew in after a Friday gig in New York City on The Late Show With David Letterman with Kree’s close friend Kacey Musgraves, whom he regularly accompanies on guitar and background vocals. This concert sold out quickly when tickets were made available Friday. Check out some Vine videos from Kree’s friend Natalie Osborne (who surprised Kree at the rodeo), which attest to the enthusiasm of the crowd as Kree took the stage: Vine 1 Vine 2
