The Military Appreciation edition of Ram Jam will begin Sept. 15 at 3:30 p.m. with a concert featuring Texas Country Singer Wade Bowen.

The show is made possible by the University Center Program Council’s Concert Committee and the students who share their input at the committee meetings.

“Who we choose to perform is really up to the students who get involved with the concert committee, and for this event they decided on Wade Bowen,” Chairperson Justice Medina said.

Previously a member of the band West 84, Bowen launched a successful solo career in 2002 when his first album, “Try Not to Listen,” became a regional hit in Texas.

Bowen’s most recent albums include “Then Sings My Soul: Songs for My Mother” (2016),” “Watch This” (2016),” and “Solid Ground” (2018).”

Bowen’s set will last 75 minutes, and a DJ will be there to keep the music going after he leaves.

Alumni Association Membership and Events Coordinator Sierra Humble said that in addition to the Wade Bowen concert, this year’s Military Appreciation Ram Jam will be different in another way.

“It used to be held before the last home game, since it fell closer to Veterans Day, but we bring a lot of people over from Goodfellow, and they had a hard time doing this and other Veterans Day activities.”

Humble also said that, all of the classic Ram Jam food and activities will be there.

“The cool thing about Ram Jam is students know what to expect,” Humble said. “We always do free food, games like cornhole, and kids’ activities in the back. Students can come and hang out all day and then go over to the stadium and support the Rams.”

After the game on the 15th, there will be four more home games and four more opportunities for students to take part in the fun of Ram Jam.

The dates and times for the future Ram Jams are as follows: Sept. 29 at 3:30 - 5:30 p.m. for Family Day, Oct. 13 at 1:30 - 3:30 p.m. for Homecoming, Oct. 27 at 1:30 - 3:30 p.m. and Nov. 3 at 11:30 - 1:30 p.m. for Senior Day.
