Innkeeper Rose Vine Inn Bed & Breakfast

Let's get started with the great things happening in the area.

"The Voice" start to perform at Liberty Hall on April 18!

Taking a break from his time on the hit show, "The Voice". We are so excited to be able to bring this sneak peek to Tyler and Liberty Hall of local talent Stevie Jo Rosenbalm. Brought to Liberty by Jaguar Artist Promotions and Amy Fish.

Rosenbalm is a Tyler native through and through. Born right here at Trinity Mother Frances and raised in East Texas, Stevie's parents both played in heavy metal bands when he was younger and he always dreamt of making it big in music. His parents may have influenced his love for music, but not the genre: Stevie loves to sing R&B. Music has always been a source of inspiration for him, and he's on "The Voice" to make his parents' dream a reality.
Stevie took the bold step of trying out for "The Voice" in Austin. He said, "I was nervous that day, too. I got a callback. Then I got another callback. There are some hoops you’ve really got to jump through. But I got there and I just couldn’t be more happy with the results.” He got his start in music by playing drums and singing in garage rock bands.“Drums are my first love. I just love rhythm and the drums and all the things you can do with it. That’s what called me to R&B, because when I was singing and playing drums. R&B vocals are packed full of those rhythmic aspects that really intrigue me.”
Competition will remain fierce as the show advances, but Rosenbalm said he’s been blown away by the support and reactions he’s received so far, both from home and abroad.“I’ve been getting so much love and support from social media. And not just social media. When I’m out in town, I’ve had people already asking me for autographs and take pictures. My friends are like, ‘You really deserve this.’ It’s so awesome to get the support of the community. It makes me feel like I’m going in the right direction.”

The Ten Commandments (1956) 

Saturday, April 19 at 1 p.m.
Tickets are $8 online or $10 at the door

To escape the edict of Egypt's Pharoah, Rameses, condemning all newborn Hebrew males, the infant Moses is set adrift on the Nile in a reed basket. Saved by the Pharaoh's daughter Bithiah, he is adopted by her and brought up in the court of her brother, Pharaoh Seti. Moses gains Seti's favor and the love of the throne princess Nefertiti, as well as the hatred of Seti's son, Ramses. When his Hebrew heritage is revealed, Moses is cast out of Egypt, and makes his way across the desert where he marries, has a son and is commanded by God to return to Egypt to free the Hebrews from slavery. In Egypt Moses's fiercest enemy proves to be not Ramses, but someone near to him who can 'harden his heart'.

The Bellamy Brothers
May 2 at 8 p.m.
Tickets are: $35 rows A-E; $30 rows D-K; Balcony rows AA-CC are $25 and DD-EE are $20
VIP BOXES are $225 and seat 4
Doors open at 7 p.m.


The Bellamy Brothers continue to prove that the trail they’ve ridden to fame has been as unique as their music itself—music that is now celebrating 30 years of success.

Their first big break came in the form of the hit, “Spiders & Snakes,” written by David and recorded by Jim Stafford. The song became a smash hit and became the catapult that rocketed the brothers onto the L.A. music scene. The Bellamys officially lifted off the launch pad in 1976 when their single, “Let Your Love Flow,” became an instant smash in both the U.S. and Europe. It stayed on the international charts long enough to build a huge international fan base.

True to their musical roots, their style and their songwriting was moving steadily more towards their raising. By the late ‘70’s The Bellamys emerged on the country charts with another bona fide smash. “If I Said You Had A Beautiful Body (Would You Hold It Against Me),” originally scrawled on a dinner napkin by David, rocketed them to the top of the country charts. It proved to be the first of a string of fourteen #1 singles in the U.S. alone.
Success followed success: “Dancing Cowboys,” “Sugar Daddy,” “You Ain’t Just Whistlin’ Dixie,” “Lovers Live Longer,” “Do You Love As Good As You Look,” “Redneck Girl,” “For All The Wrong Reasons,” “I Love Her Mind,” “I Need More Of You,” “Old Hippie,” “Too Much Is Not Enough,” “Kids Of The Baby Boom,” and “Reggae Cowboy” and “Crazy From The Heart,”…all have lined the corridors of the Bellamy’s musical history and their walls with platinum and gold.
The Bellamy Brothers hold the record in both the Academy of Country Music (ACM) and the Country Music Association Awards (CMA) for the most duo nominations. Numerous Grammy nods have also been directed toward the brothers.

These days when the subject turns to touring, The Bellamys are showing a new generation of country music how it’s done. “We’re old road dogs,” grins Howard when asked about the motivation behind the brothers 200 plus concert dates each year. Adds David: “Our live draw is bigger than it was in the ‘80’s. I think the same people that grew up with us and with our music in the ‘60’s and ‘70’s obviously have raised a whole new generation of Bellamy fans who started toddling to our music. Now they’re turning up at our concerts as college kids, who are really turned on and tuned in to us and our music….it’s a great feeling.” 


 One of my Favorites!

Steel Magnolias (1989)
May 10 at 3 p.m.
Tickets are $8 online and $10 at the door

 Just in time for Mother's Day, Liberty Hall brings you "Steel Magnolias", starring Sally Fields and Julia Roberts. The story revolves around Truvy's Beauty Parlor in a small parish in Louisiana. It is the story of a close-knit circle of friends whose lives are intertwined. As the picture opens, we find Drum Eatenton shooting birds in the trees of his back yard in preparation for his daughter's wedding reception that afternoon. Shortly thereafter, M'Lynn and Shelby (Drum's wife and daughter) depart for Truvy's to get their hair done for the wedding. "Just the sweetest thing," Annelle Depuy Desoto joins Truvy's as the new "glamour technician." While in the chairs, the sour-tempered Ouiser Boudreaux shows up and entertains the assemblage with her barbs. It seems that the only one of the group who truly understands Ouiser is Clairee, who is recently widowed and looking for a diversion. Filled with humor and heartbreak, these "Steel Magnolias" make us laugh and cry as the realities of their lives in tiny Chiquapin Parish unfolds.  Bring your mom and a box of kleenex!!

After releasing two well-received albums on Judy Collins' Wildflower Records, How to Sleep in a Stormy Boat is Amy's second record since migrating south from her longtime home in the NYC area.

April 10-13 7:30pm  April 14 2:30pm
A plane crashes on a deserted island.
The only survivors are a group of school boys.
They live in a land of bright exotic birds and dark blue seas, but at night their dreams are inhabited by a terrifying beast!
Before long this well behaved group has turned into a bloodthirsty and murderous tribe!
This adaptation of William Golding's compelling story is about a group of very ordinary small boys marooned on a coral island has become a modern classic. At first it seems as though it is all going to be great fun; but the fun before long becomes furious and life on the island turns into a nightmare of panic and death. As ordinary standards of behaviour collapse, the whole world the boys know collapses with them—the world of cricket and homework and adventure stories—and another world is revealed beneath, primitive and terrible.
Lord of the Flies remains as provocative today as when it was first published in 1954, igniting passionate debate with its startling, brutal portrait of human nature.

  • The fair features costumed characters, a “Punch and Judy” show, Cirque du Sewer Rat Circus, several vendors, belly dancing, Celtic music, archery, and unscripted jousting, General Manager Keith Waddoups said. It draws about 10,000 people to Troup during the eight weeks that it runs. Each weekend features a different theme while there is a school day open to any area schools that want to
    arrange a visit.
  • Owner Dustin Stephens used to be part of the Texas Renaissance Festival while Waddoups, who hails from England, had performed at various Celtic weekends. When Stephens decided to start a festival in East Texas, Waddoups asked if he needed any help.
    “We try to keep everything historically correct,” Waddoups said.
    The fair features an English court with King Henry VIII and his last wife, Catherine Parr. The 300-year-old “Punch and Judy” show is authentic as is the jousting, he said.
    “We do full contact jousting,” Waddoups said. “If you take a hit, you take a hit. It’s all real. Nothing is rehearsed.”

 Louise Mosrie is part of the new, young breed of Nashville songwriters making good waves in the music industry. Louise’s songwriting career began after college while living in Knoxville, where she produced two independent, pop/folk albums before moving to Nashville in 2004 to hone her song-craft.

Adept across many genres, she settled on Americana/folk as her most natural voice, ably demonstrated in Home, her most recent CD.
Drawing on the sensual imagery of the Deep South, Louise’s songs are filled with deep feeling and uncommon description conveying a world of lush detail and wide-open emotion. Compared to songwriters Nanci Griffith, Lucinda Williams and Patty Loveless, Louise has been also been dubbed “William Faulkner with a guitar.”
Further kudos include New Folk winner at Kerrville in 2009, second place at Telluride in 2011, and Emerging Artist at Falcon Ridge in 2011..
