Windy City Smokeout

JULY 12-14, 2019

2018 Five ‘Cue Friday: Troy Cartwright

With only two weeks until the Smokeout kicks off, the countdown is on and we’re waiting on the edge of our seats for Troy Cartwright!

A Dallas native, country music has been coursing through his veins his entire life. After signing with Sunfire Entertainment and releasing his critically acclaimed debut, he cracked the top 25 on the Texas Music Chart. Troy has shared bills with notable country artists — including ones that graced the Smokeout stage — like Randy Rogers, Turnpike Troubadours, Hayes Carll and Green River Ordinance.

Gearing up for Troy’s performance on Sunday, June 15, he dishes on his top bites and beats of the summer!

1. Favorite BBQ
nice sliced brisket sandwich with that sweet Texas-Style mop sauce — also if you don’t have baked beans for a side it’s not really BBQ. That’s a fact.

2. What artist(s) are you most excited to see at the Smokeout?
I can’t wait to see Brothers Osborne play their new record. They are one of my favorite live bands on the scene right now!

3. Beverage of choice
Ice-cold Lonestar beer

4. What song are you most excited to perform this summer?
My new song “Hung Up On You”

5. What’s on your summer playlist?
There’s so much good music coming out right now. I love the new Brothers Osborne song “Slow Your Roll“, and I also have to give some respect to the original summer jam “Soak up the Sun” by Sheryl Crow.

Catch Troy’s set on July 15! Check out the full lineup of artists throughout the weekend.
