Being friends first, we five started playing together in 2002 because we just couldn’t seem to get our 60s and 70s garage bands out of our system. So, SHADES OF GRAY was formed.
The Beatles, The Eagles, Creedence Clearwater Revival, ZZ Top, ELO, The Doobie Brothers, Chicago, The Monkees, The Beach Boys, Lynard Skynard, Loggins and Messina, Stray Cats, The Rolling Stones – all are included in our rockin’ set list and are guaranteed to have you singing along and dancing to the music. Plus, we throw in some R&B and Texas Country just because we can!
SHADES OF GRAY is Terry Moore on drums and lead vocals, Tim Hutchens on keyboards and lead vocals, Craig McBroom on keyboards and lead vocals, Mike Chambers on bass guitar, Beth Savage, lead vocal, and Roby Bass on lead guitar.

Wes Davis and The Highwater: Live music on Ms Jimmie Main Stage on Texas & Houston Street

Wes Davis and The Highwater is a country music outfit hailing from Waxahachie, Texas. After forming in late 2018 the band quickly began performing at backyard parties and local venues. They are poised to release their first E.P. titled “Backwards Down the Aisle” in September of this year.
Songwriter Wesley Davis tells stories of cold beer and heartache in a signature Texas drawl. However, he delivers his message with uplifting melodies and upbeat tempos to let you know nothing is going to get him down
The band draws from influences like red dirt legends Turnpike Troubadours and Texas songwriters such as Charlie Robinson. Their live performances combine all the energy of a booze-soaked bar room brawl on a Saturday night with the gut-check truths preachedon Sunday morning.

History

Country Day was started in 1937 by a small group of Cedar Hill residents to renew old friendships. In the beginning it was called the Old Settlers Reunion. A few years later the event came under the supervision of the Cedar Hill Volunteer Fire Dept.

The event grew as many former residents  returned home  to renew their friendships. For several years the event was taken over by the Chamber of Commerce and is now managed by a group of  volunteer residents known as The Friends of Country Day, Inc.

This year, Country Day on the Hill will bring up to 10,000 visitors to the streets of  Historic Downtown Cedar Hill, Texas. It is sponsored by the City of Cedar Hill, generous businesses and private citizens.

In the 1800s, businesses in Cedar Hill  welcomed  early settlers each Saturday and gave them relief from the hard working days on the farms. Country Day commemorates those early days and the relationships that helped form the community. 

Today we invite everyone to enjoy the parade, competitions, games, demonstrations, church gatherings, musicians, great food and a wonderful selection of vendors on the square. It's all made possible by volunteers on the Country Day committee, support from the City and local businesses. The support of Mayor Stephen Mason, Council members Shirley Daniels, Gregory Glover, Daniel Haydin, Chad McCurdy, Clifford Shaw and Alan E. Sims is sincerely appreciated. City Manager Greg Porter, Assistant Manager Melissa Cummings, and the wonderful City staff help make the events fun, safe and convenient.

The Cedar Hill Police Department, under the supervision of Police Chief Ely Reyes, Assistant Chief  Steve Lafferty and Lt. Charles Reiss, provide security for our event.

The Fire Department “Fire Safety House” is a huge part of Country Day, our thanks to Chief John Ballard, Fire Marshall Reginald Alexander and EMS Chief Kevin Cunningham.

The Cedar Hill Parks and Recreation team is led by Shawn Ray and Carolyn Skeels. Their superb crew makes it all happen each and every year. Our thanks are extended to the City of Cedar Hill, Street Department, Main Street, and the Cedar Hill ISD for their extensive support throughout the years. Many thanks also go to our local businesses for their generous sponsorship and support that enable Friends of Country Day to continuously provide the finances necessary to produce this beloved festival.
