CCA Texas is a non-profit marine conservation organization comprised of tens of thousands of recreational anglers and coastal outdoor enthusiasts. CCA Texas was formed in 1977 by a
small group of recreational anglers who were concerned after drastic commercial overfishing decimated Texas redfish and speckled trout populations. More than a quarter of a century later, CCA Texas continues the spirit of stewardship that started with the “Save the Redfish” campaign.

“We are extremely excited about our upcoming concert. This is a new membership drive concept for us and we are hopeful with these four well known performers that we will have a great turnout,” said Robby Byers, executive director of CCA Texas.
CCA Texas unmatched breadth and depth of volunteer involvement has made it the largest marine conservation group of its kind, enacting positive change on all levels of coastal marine conservation and management.

Saturday’s featured artist Pat Green shares the enthusiasm with CCA Texas, "I hope to help make CCA's membership drive a success by putting on a great show with some of my friends at one of my favorite venues.”

The Concert for Conservation will take place on the pavilion apron located next to Sam Houston Race Park’s grandstand and will feature performances throughout the day on the Bud Light Stage.
