Four modern-day country crooners from Houston are paving their way in the Texas country music scene. In and out of honky-tonks from Oklahoma City to San Antone, the Chad Cooke Band delivers 3 & 4 part harmonies with a country rock-n-roll edge.
Dave Fenley was born and raised in the small town of Lufkin, an East Texas town deeply rooted with religion, family values, and music. As a child, he sang with the children’s choir in his Southern Baptist church while his father sang bass in the “big choir.” From there, Dave spent the next decades honing his skills and figuring out what type of artist he would be. Dave currently lives in Nashville, Tennessee and writes songs for a living.
You might recognize Marlowe from our first Good For Country concert in November 2020! Born in the small town of Kannapolis, North Carolina, Kameron sold car parts at General Motors for a living before he got a call that changed his life forever. A recruiter from NBC’s “The Voice” found performance videos of Marlowe on YouTube and reached out with an offer to take him straight to the series’ live auditions.

UBank’s Good For Country concert is where country music entertainment meets community relief in the East Texas area.
Born out of a post-COVID need for uplifting entertainment and financial support in the Angelina county community, the first Good For Country concert took place in November of 2020. While an exciting, light-hearted night of country music is a guarantee, the real purpose of this event is to raise money for the East Texas Food Bank (ETFB). UBank’s founder and their family has been working with the ETFB for over 40 years, so supporting this cause in an even bigger capacity means the world to our organization. As one of the last standing community banks in East Texas, UBank understands the importance of giving back. The vast majority of our staff was born and raised in East Texas, so giving back to the people and places that raised us is a key initiative of the UBank brand.
The East Texas Food Bank was created in 1988 by a group of community leaders in Tyler to fight hunger. ETFB started with 17 partner agencies in 10 counties and now operates with over 200 partner agencies and feeding programs throughout 26 East Texas counties. While its programs have evolved to meet the needs of our community, ETFB’s vision remains the same today as when it started – to create a hunger-free East Texas. ETFB believes that every East Texan should have access to the nutritious food they need to thrive. The East Texas Food Bank serves its community with three main impact areas:
1. FEED children, families and seniors through 200+ partner agencies and feeding programs.
2. STRENGTHEN families through nutrition education and benefits assistance programs.
3. LEAD the community in hunger-relief work and advocacy.
The Good For Country concert is the perfect night of entertainment for your entire family! Whether you're 6 or 60, this event has something for everyone.
We recommend bringing lawn chairs to sit in if you don't want to stand (or dance) near the stage.
In addition to the free entertainment, we partnered with a Lufkin staple, The Roundtable, to sell ribeye sandwiches that support a great cause. All proceeds from the The Rountable go towards a scholarship fund benefiting Angelina county's FFA, 4H and family science students. Every meal purchased at the event benefitted our local community.
