England, Stillwater to Play Reunion Gig

Tyler England will reunite with other former members of The Stillwater Band — Garth Brooks’ old backup group — on Saturday (March 31) in Fort Worth, Texas. The free show takes place at 8:30 p.m. at Chevy Thunder in the Stockyards, located next to Billy Bob’s, as part of Billy Bob’s 20th anniversary celebration. Stillwater parted ways after playing its last show with Brooks in 1998. Keyboardist Dave Gant, guitarist James Garver, steel guitarist Steve McClure, bassist Mark Greenwood and drummer Mike Palmer will join England on stage. England, who used to play guitar in the band, will supply lead vocals. “I haven’t worked with these guys for years, but it’s weird how you fall back into old ways,” England said after rehearsals. “It’s almost like you never left. We’re going to bring that old camaraderie back and let it be part of the show.”
