About Larry Joe Taylor

Larry Joe Taylor is an avid songwriter, rancher, and festival producer. He began his festival career in 1989 by hosting a small gathering in the small town of Mingus, west of Fort Worth where he and some of his songwriting friends to perform their tunes and hopefully draw a few fans. The idea was to provide a music friendly environment in which both the artists and fans felt welcome and on common ground. Today, Taylor and his family produce the largest independently-owned outdoor 6-day music festival in Texas, known as the Larry Joe Taylor Texas Music Festival, and often referred to as “LJT”. Not only does the Taylor family host multiple live music events year-round on the 380 acre “Melody Mountain Ranch” in Stephenville, Texas, Larry and his crew have produced and co-produced off-site live music events at other venues such as “Pickin’ at Possum” at The Lush (Possum Kingdom Lake), “Hot Chili Days Cool Mountain Nights” in Red River, NM, “Island Time” in Isla Mujeres, MX, “Coastin and Cruisin” Songwriter’s Cruise, and many others.
