The sounds of the 11th annual live music series at the County Line, 10101 I-10 W., have begun to fill the air.

The outdoor series, which runs 6:30-10 p.m. Wednesdays, features some great names in the music business, including Cory Morrow, Two Tons of Steel and Jason Boland, all for free. Admission is merely a donation of food or money to the San Antonio Food Bank. Concerts are held rain or shine.

“We’re looking forward to another successful year of this free music series, started 12 years ago by Randy Goss,” says Mike Crenwelge, general manager of the County Line. “Over the years, people who love country music and barbecue have truly showed where their heart is with their generous donations of food and money to the San Antonio Food Bank. Let’s continue to make Randy proud.”

The most recent lineup, which is subject to change, is as follows:

  • March 30 — Kyle Bennett Band and Stonehoney

The performances are free; however, all who attend are asked to make a food or monetary donation to the San Antonio Food Bank. The 2010 music series raised more 52,640 pounds of food.

“The San Antonio Food Bank is extremely grateful to have this continued partnership with County Line BBQ again this year,” said Eric Cooper, president/CEO of the San Antonio Food Bank. “Since we began this partnership 11 years ago, we have collected more than 530,000 pounds of food that has helped feed thousands of hungry individuals each week in Southwest Texas. Randy’s legacy of helping others and fighting hunger continues to remain strong through this wonderful partnership.”

The Rib King Dies


The "Rib King" Randy Goss in front of The County Line.

The County Line’s Randy Goss, known to many as “The Rib King,” died in his car Thursday.

Goss, 55, was found inside his car, which was submerged in water.

His barbecue has been a popular fixture in San Antonio for years, and his face was known to many from the billboards seen around town for years. He will also be remembered for the weekly music series at the I-10 restaurant that raised canned goods for the San Antonio Food Bank.

According to a statement released by the restaurants, “Today we lost a friend, a husband, a father, a King. In respect to the Goss family and all of us at The County Line who loved him dearly, we will wait until the weekend to announce his memorial services. Thank you for your consideration.”

The restaurant’s I-10 location planned on closing Thursday evening but would be open again Friday.

The County Line is at 111 W. Crockett St. and at 10101 W. I-10.
